    Re: Applying for 2019

    Well there is the vague goals of "internationalization" and "promoting Japan abroad" for which I see little evidence that JET is to thank for any progress in those areas. However, I acknowledge those...

    Re: Applying for 2019

    I hate JET, but because it's an ineffective program that is a waste of money. For the average JET it's going to be a happy time for them as they blissfully make Japan worse.

    Is that why the ads are suddenly more intrusive? I mean I hate to use adblockers, but right now the ads are bigger than the posts and can look like a user posted them.

    If you're in the main parts of Saitama you'll have no problem going to the ocean. A nice beach may be harder to reach, but the ocean is easy to get to.
