There is no better to way to bond and become closer with fellow JETs than taking part in activities together. The AJET paragliding trip to Tottori, earlier this year was one such experience. Take a look at JET alum, Omrum Bozdogan’s take on the trip here in her article “Tottori: All or Nashing.”
As many of our JETs prepare for their final weeks on the JET programme, the question of what to do next often pops up. To provide inspiration on what to do next, we are pleased to once again bring you the “Where are they now?” series. To get us started, we have an interview with JET alum- Marissa Trierweiler about her exciting and intriguing activities, post-JET.
Yamaguchi. We know it as our neighbour to the south, the southernmost tip of Honshu, and a great place to grab a bite of Mexican food (at least in Iwakuni). But this southern prefecture has so much more to offer. Lowell Bell, a Yamaguchi insider, gives us a snap look at his adopted home prefecture. Be sure to give it a read! Who knows? You may just choose to make it your next weekend getaway.
