Japan is a nation known for its fantastic festivals and annual celebrations, but perhaps none is more famous than the festivities that accompany the arrival of the cherry blossoms each spring. From late March through early May, cherry blossoms bloom across Japan, welcoming spring with a burst of color unlike any other. For those teaching English in Japan, the arrival of the cherry blossoms is a certain highlight of their stay in Japan, one of the top job markets in Asia and the world for teaching English abroad.
The leaves have turned, the air is crisp and spooky jack-o-lanterns are popping up around the neighborhood, which means that Halloween is around the corner! If you think that you would miss out on the fun while teaching English abroad, think again! Yes! Many countries around the globe celebrate Halloween, which is one of the world’s oldest holidays, dating back to pagan times. From costumes and “trick-or-treating” to delicious food and parties, you can celebrate Halloween anywhere in the world!
So where will you be celebrating Halloween next year?
