About Tokyo

The dazzling and energetic capital of Japan has earned its deserved reputation of being the most technologically advanced, fashion forward, cutting edge of design and efficient city. With the modern neon cityscape that never sleeps ready for the visitor to explore, one forgets there is also considerable charm in its little lanes where the best ramen stalls can be hiding. Although it’s a big city, Tokyo is considered one of the safest and cleanest cities and its residents are some of the friendliest people in the world, always ready to lend a hand if in need. The city with a population of 13.8 million is also home to over 150 universities.

Why do an internship in Tokyo?

If you are looking to add experience in one of the most important global economic centres and the world’s second largest developed economy to your resume then Tokyo offers opportunities in marketing, accounting and finance, sport, tourism and hospitality, manufacturing, robotics and electronics. The city gives the sense of round-the-clock kinetic mobility, innovation and efficiency. Tokyo is quirky by day, and even quirkier at night. Now more affordable and welcoming than ever.
