Takato Yamasaki, President of Okayama, Japan's Amity Corporation, announced recently the opening of Amity's 75th school in Japan. Amity Teachers is Japan's largest private institution dedicated to teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to children and it has more than 20,000 students dispersed throughout its 75 specialty schools.

    Amity's new school, located in Hiroshima Ujina, is in a vibrant area of economic growth in the city of Hiroshima, Japan.

Amity is a division of the AEON Corporation of Japan and has grown to become the leading conversational English school in Japan for children. Amity has been operating independently of AEON since 1994 and has developed a worldwide native teacher recruiting system since 2005. Amity regularly recruits teachers from all across North America and the United Kingdom. Amity has offices in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. Each office contributes independently to the recruitment of highly-qualified teachers who will live in Japan on one-year contracts.

Amity Corporation hires talented native-speaking professionals from around the world through its recruiting offices so that the Japanese students not only receive the highest quality English instruction but also profit from the rich cultural experience of their diverse teaching faculty.

Amity Corporation recruits English as Foreign Language (EFL) teachers throughout the calendar year from its North American offices. Annually, the Amity Corporation recruiters hire more than 130 professionals - all meeting high educational, professional and personal standards - to move to Japan to become EFL instructors at schools spread across the main island Honshu in Japan.

AEON Corporation of Japan, Amity's parent company, has been an innovator in the field of English education for more than 30 years, offering exceptional classroom and internet opportunities to study and master the language for students beyond grammar school age. Founded in 1973 by Kiyoshi Aki, AEON has grown to become one of the largest and most respected private educational institutes of its kind, with more than 3,000 employees. Current student enrollment exceeds 100,000 in more than 300 branch schools located within every prefecture of Japan.
