    <tt>Hi Lucy

    I"m from Kent and I have also been placed in Kumamoto (in Kumamoto
    City) so I"ll see you at the pre-orientation!

    Come join us on www.ithinkimlost.com & www.bigdaikon.com and you"ll
    find some more people who have been placed there too.... People have
    been telling me great things about the prefecture - and we also got
    lucky with a ruling that only allows you to work 20 days each month -
    so if there are more than 20 working days a particular month you get
    the rest off as holiday (around 8-10 extra days off a year). Not bad!

    Anyway, see you soon!

    Alex

    hey guys,
    Has anyone else been placed in the Kumomoto prefecture? I have
    been
    placed in a town called Asahi, but it"s so small I can"t find it on
    the map (any ideas of a good online map that will show it"s
    location??)

    anyone else going to this prefecture or currently there? Really
    pleased as it was my first choice :)

    Any other Southern UK JETs out there??

    <tt>Hey Lynette,

    Yes I"ve been to Japan twice before (or maybe three times if you
    count the stopover on the way to the Philippines). On my two
    week trip I bought a rail pass and went all the way down to Kyoto,
    Hiroshima and Miyajima. I think i tried to do too much in the
    short period I was there. It was exhausting but lots of fun.

    Hi Chris,
    Good to hear from you. Hang in there as upgrades should
    happen very soon. Sounds like you have a lot of teaching and
    international experience, so you probably have a good chance.
    Take care and good luck with your finals.

    Howdy SD folks!

    Good to know more folks that went through the LA consulate
    and are in
    the SD area as well.

    I"m also an alternate and am hoping that Angel (the lady at the
    JET
    office in LA) will send word soon of upgraded LA alternates. I"m
    a
    bit nerve-wracked since I am juggling school, work (I travel out
    of
    state and country at least 3 times a month) and worrying about
    JET.
    Not healthy. @_@

    I"m in the process of finishing my degree in political science
    (I.R.)
    and have studied in Japan before so I have some passing
    knowledge of
    Japanese. Heck, I"ve even tutored Japanese exchange
    students in
    English before. Granted that lasted for a quarter and I don"t
    think
    they got too much out of it. Amused they were though.

    Hey Joe,

    Thanks for crossing your fingers! =) I know there"s at least
    one
    other
    alternate from UCSD also. I"ve got some experience teaching
    - not
    much
    tho.. I used to teach religion classes at chruch - I did that for 2
    and a half years... that was more like babysitting. I"m sure
    you"ll
    do
    fine in Japan tho.. no need for nervousness - just have fun
    with
    it!

    Wow - you used to mentor at Freese - I"m not exactly sure
    where that
    is but I know it"s somewhere in my area. Have you ever been
    to
    japan?
    I was there earlier this year.. I loved it!

    Hi Lynette!

    So far, there are at least three people from UC San Deigo
    that
    will be going to Japan this year. I hope you get upgraded
    and
    will keep my fingers crossed for you. I actually graduated
    with
    a
    B.S. in Biochemistry/Cell Biology. The only kind of teaching
    experience I have is training lab assistants and TEP130
    (class
    at UCSD) in which I was a mentor at Freese Elementary in
    South
    San Diego. It will be totally new to me and I am kind of
    nervous.
    Yikes!! :) Do you have teaching experience?

    <tt>In that case - I"ve been to Japan twice including the stop over to the
    Philippines! Haha. What did you think of the Philippines? I wasn"t in
    Japan for too long - it was only for 10 days and I only went to parts
    of Tokyo and Saitama. I didn"t spend too much time trying to do too
    much sight-seeing, I had a feeling that I"d eventually be back in
    Japan and I"d have plenty of time to do that. Go figure - I"m still an
    alternate... but we"ll see happens.. I know I"ll eventually get
    there.. somehow! =)

    I will be seeing

    Good to hear from you Alex, which part of Kent are you from? and

    <tt>hey,

    That"s odd, I"m in Group B.

    Yep, know the area, it"s about an hour from where I currently work.

    Kumomoto was my first choice as fancied somewhere in the south and
    it sounds like a nice area, lots of outdoor things to do.

    Who"s going to the reception on Thursday in London?

    Does anyone have any idea when we"ll hear from our schools,
    apparently we can only make contact with the current JET once we"ve
    signed our contracts.

    Has anyone else been placed in the Kumomoto prefecture? I have
    been
    placed in a town called Asahi, but it"s so small I can"t find it on
    the map (any ideas of a good online map that will show it"s
    location??)

    anyone else going to this prefecture or currently there? Really
    pleased as it was my first choice :)

    Any other Southern UK JETs out there??
