    Re: "The Last Supper" Thread for 2015 JETs

    This is true. I live in Osaka and last year me and a bunch of JETs wanted to throw a Canadian thanksgiving party, but we could not find a turkey. We even went to Costco and they said they do not get...

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2015

    Any Calgarians up in here? I've seen people from almost every other city! I know quite a few Calgarians that are not recontracting, so, you never know, you might replace them. Yes, I know that is a...

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2015

    It varies depending on province as well. I am from Alberta and many, many, many prairie province JETs were placed in Hokkaido, most likely due to Alberta and Hokkaido being sister provinces.

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2015

    I think that depends on the BoE right? Mine just gave me my recontracting application last week and it is due January 15th, 2015.

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2015

    It's hard to believe that it was a year ago that I was applying for the JET Program, yet here I am sitting at my desk at one of my ES eating kyuushoku.

    If anyone has any questions, don't be...

    Re: Packing for Japan

    God no. That would take too long. There is a direct flight from Vancouver to Japan. Hell, before Air Canada added a direct flight from Calgary to Japan, we would have had to connect in Vancouver.

  10. Re: So, what's the deal with pre-departure orientation?

    Ah, this makes sense. So I assume these are not mandatory?

    And to those who have been to them, are they worth attending?
  11. Re: So, what's the deal with pre-departure orientation?

    I just received an e-mail about a 'Pre-departure Seminar' that is happening in the middle of June. It is at the University and not the embassy. Is this the same thing as the PDO? It seems rather...

    Re: T minus one week until We start finding out!

    One more question. In my application, I said that I do not want to drive in Japan. Will the place me in a town/city where I will need to drive or is that a request that they do follow?

    Re: T minus one week until We start finding out!

    As I patiently await my placement news, a question popped into my head about them.
