    In light of increasing competition in domestic and global markets, it is imperative for Japanese corporations to utilize highly-skilled foreign-born nationals,including those who have graduated from Japanese institutions of higher education,more frequently as part of their labor forces, not only to mitigate the effect of a decrease in supply of Japanese nationals in the labor market, but also to achieve more workforce diversity. This article first reviews the extant research on the working environments of highly-skilled foreign-born nationals in Japan. It then compares and analyzes the results of questionnaire surveys reported in a number of previous studies. The article argues that Japanese employers generally expect highly-skilled foreign-born workers to already possess high-level Japanese communication skills prior to hiring them, and that employers usually expect foreign workers to further improve these communication skills without providing any adequate corporate support in order for them to succeed in this task. Finally, the article recommends that since previous studies tend to focus on large-sized corporations, further studies of small-and medium-sized companies are needed, given the fact that statistics show that many Japan-educated foreign graduates tend to work for these smaller companies.

    This paper describes the planning scheme, features, and impacts of the new English immersion facility Tokyo Global Gateway (TGG), opened in September 2018. TGG is a project led by the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education and conducted via a public-private partnership. The facility’s scale is 7,000 ㎡ with environments and equipment that simulate practical English-speaking situations. On average, 70–100 English-speaking staff members from approximately 30 countries work there daily. Students from elementary to senior high school experience various practical programs, gain confidence, and enhance their motivation for further learning of the English language. The facility’s impact during its initial period was great, and it has potential

    to be a national hub of English education. The authors have reported the details as administrative members of the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education.
