​Living and working in Japan

Pilots flying with Skymark can live in Japan on a non commute or commute home each month and still have the opportunity to explore Tokyo and the surrounding areas. The capital city of Japan is a fast paced city with a fascinating contrast between traditional Japanese culture and futuristic technology. Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors and locals alike. The city's history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens. Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green spaces in the city.
