Hahahahaha literally laughing out loud, there is nothing funnier to me than a tattoo fail. Whether it's a drunken tattooing or a backyard scratchers hack job or something like you described dazwaaah. Ahh the lifelong fail...

I got it off some website ages ago. I was going to get some random thing like that, painted on my car in "Crystal Efex" paint.

Cheers

I can ask around and ask if anyone I know can recognize it. It could mean something different in chinese to Japanese as well! LOL

You are better off deciding on the word and get it translated instead the other way around.

BTW, FYI, Japanese Kanji is Chinese. Most Japanese Kanji characters are spoken differently in both languages and often have different meanings and often more than one meaning. Japan have 3 sets of different scripts which make it so difficult to learn, however, Kanji is by far the most difficult. You need to learn about 2,000 characters to read a newspaper for example!!!!

(So the Chinese joke is quite correct in this case.)

You may very well be correct mate.

I live in Japan, but I am not studying it. LOL. The other info I gave is quite correct though as far as I am aware?

Okay,
so the Japanese is yokky = desire or craving
Chinese is yqi
Very close pronunciation, which usually happens when 2 Kanji are used together.
Didn't think this thread would live on after my first response...

We are actually in Otsu Shiga, 3 train stops from Kyoto.

My wife and I are teaching English . My wifes dream is to teach English as a second language. My reason is that I want to bring a JZS161 back to Australia. We want our 3 children to learn Japanese and have an experience of a lifetime.
It does not snow much where we live. It does not stick around for more than half a day. However, Japan in general seems to have plenty of snow if you are into snowboarding etc.

Can I ask, do you have to be able to speak Japanese to teach English in Japan?

And, how did you come by the job(s)?

Hello Peter, it's been a long time.

The basic answer is no, you don't have to speak Japanese to teach English in Japan. In fact, many jobs require you to not speak any Japanese in the classroom. However, it may become difficult communicating with colleagues if you can't speak Japanese. There are of course workplaces where you can get around this, but it can make thing difficult.

Very basic rundown:

Go to Japan for a holiday first. (Highly recommended) See if what you see is to your liking.
Work out where you would like to live and work.
Get Japanese friends. Seriously, we would not be able to be here if we didn't have friends here first. You need to be able to rely on them to help you out, especially in the first 3 months of living here. It might sound stupid, but sign-up to get some Japanese 'Home Stay' Students stay with you in Australia first. This is a great way to learn some Japanese culture and make friends. You are best living near you friends.
Call and email schools and Agencies months before you plan to go and arrange to meet with them. Sorry to say it, but go to Japan again for a week or two and get the job. Almost all jobs are for a 1 year contract and the school year begins in April. Most places start looking for people in October I believe?
Then the fun begins....Visa's and paperwork etc, although, your new employer should do most of the ground work for you.
Last main point. You need a degree to get a job here. It does not need to be a teaching degree, but that helps big time. If you are coming over with a partner, they should be able to easily, (like I did), change their visa so that they can work for up to 28 hours per week teaching too. Trust me, one you are here and working, it is SOOO easy to get an English teaching job if you are up to it. I seriously have to turn down work coz I am up to my 28 hours per week already. The work is generally fairly easy and expect to get around 250,000yen per month. It does not sound like much, but if you live outside the major cities, you can get by quite comfortably to be honest.

My main job was through my wife's work and now I have stayed and she has a new job. The extra Sat morning job I do was kinda through word of mouth.

I hope that gives you a bit of an idea? The questions you have asked are pretty big questions BTW. I could write a book! LOL

Oh, if you you wanna know about Japan and what it's like to live here as an Aussie, go to thejapanchaneldotcom on youtube and watch lots of his 1000 videos.
