    I got a fishing town with 50k people in Toyama. Not sure what kind of inaka level this is? I guess 50k isn't too bad. It's half an hour from the closest bigger city. I'm looking forward to it but...
  3. Re: what do you wish you'd have known before coming to Japan?

    maybe Americans are so used to not having any benefits that whatever the halved number of vacation days is would still be a step up?

    Also just googled the bioluminescent squid. So creepy, I love...
  4. Re: what do you wish you'd have known before coming to Japan?

    yikes. Which prefecture are you in? Please not Toyama?

  6. what do you wish you'd have known before coming to Japan?

    I'm heading out in August to start as an ALT. Not sure where I'll be placed yet -- hopefully will find out next week. Any hot tips/wisdom to bestow besides "take deodorant"?

    Re: Anyone applying for 2018?

    Ahhh, nice! Did you do it early just to get it out of the way? I thought that was something to deal with after notification of results unless you applied for early departure.
