Abstract

This essay presents the profiles of nine foreign teachers and professors on campus at the University of Shizuoka based on interviews with them. The questions include: Why did they come to Japan?; how did they decide to be a teacher or professor and what do they think of teaching?; what does it mean for them to live in Japan?; how well do they adjust themselves to Japanese culture? In short, what kind of careers have they pursued and how have they affected their sense of identity? It was found that many of them were teaching foreign languages, married with Japanese, and thinking of teaching as their calling. Although they were often put into a cross-cultural dilenma in everyday life, they seemed to be fairly well-adjusted to Japanese culture.
