  • There’s a great new podcast radio show run by JETs in Fukui prefecture aimed at new JETs about to arrive in Japan. Each show discusses general issues that incoming JETs (for all prefectures) will face, life in Japan, problems, solutions, what to bring, money issues, schools, housing, etc…. Anyone can listen to the shows and email us and ask us ANY questions they have and we’ll discuss the questions in the next show. The show is completely independent of any official JET body – so feel free to ask any questions about anything to get real opinions and answers from JETs who are living in Japan and have been through the whole process themselves. Check out the JET 2007 Podcast […]<!-- AddThis Sharing Buttons below -->
