    Re: How do I contact this salon?!

    It's funny though, because I'm not even in Tokyo, I'm in Ibaraki. Roppongi has the few closest salons that can do ethnic hair :/ Hair problems.

    How do I contact this salon?!

    Hey everyone. This is directed towards the Tokyo JETs or those that have gotten their hair done in Roppongi.

    There is this salon called "Room 806" that is located in Roppongi. I don't live in the...

    Re: PLACEMENTS!!! 2015 General Placements Thread

    I haven't heard anything about city yet either. From what I've researched so far, Ibaraki has an amazing plum tree garden, Mt. Tsukuba, pretty good yearly temperatures, and it's not too far from...

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    Same here. Doesn't seem like there are any people headed to my prefecture from ATL either. Also naginata, if it's any consolation, I'll be at the Q&A session :3

    Re: PLACEMENTS!!! 2015 General Placements Thread

    Ibaraki-ken in the house :D Wasn't one of my requests, but it's a prefecture away from my old host family and some ALTs I currently know. I don't know my city yet. So far all I know is that Ibaraki...

    Re: After the Excitement

    Count me in on the train of doubt. Short listed and ruminating.

    When I applied to JET I didn't really have any other goals after graduating from undergrad, but in the past year I've discovered...

    Re: Terrified 2016 applicant

    I also mentioned that I had a recent history of depression and anxiety on my medical form (the "currently being treated" kind of recent) and I was shortlisted this year as well. They definitely asked...

    Re: Bringing perscriptions to Japan

    I recently talked to my doctor about this same thing. I use birth control where each cycle lasts 3 months (seasonique), and I'm pretty sure they don't have it in Japan. My doc said she has given...

    Thanks for sharing your experience :) Unfortunately, I didn't have the foresight to plan my hair for Japan years in advance :/

    Re: Black hair in Japan

    I've always been warned that my hair may break out if I don't relax the new growth every 2 months or so (because it's so thick). Hopefully by maintaining my permed hair I won't get too much...

    I figured it would be a fiasco. I'm also strongly leaning towards asking for help from ALTs in the area.

    Black hair in Japan

    Not sure if this goes in the Lounge or about Japan. The mods are free to move it where they see fit ^_^
