    What about your JTE? Paperwork must be a pain.
    I kind of like the idea of a rural placement though. Do you think someone with survival Japanese would be fine in the Inaka?

    I've heard horror stories about health care in Japan. Are the rural areas really that bad for common injuries, or just drummed up more for hyperbole? How hard is it to get fitted for contacts?
