Prefectural Associations (Kenjin Kai)

Do you feel like only people who lived in the inaka of Kumamoto will understand your experiences on Jet? Well, then get in touch with some of them. Some prefectures have organized “kenjin-kai“—prefectural alumni clubs. These are groups of people originally from certain prefectures who now live in the NY area. Some of these addresses may not have been updated recently. It’s the best info I could get.
