    i love it. and very few people here dont like it. its a small prefecture with a big ole lake in the middle and surrounded by mountains on all sides. cant look in any direction and not see mountains. from my office i can get to kyoto city in 8 mins, osaka station in 35 mins and kobe in a little over an hour. the people up north are closer to nagoya and gifu city but still from anywhere in the prefecture you are no more than 2 hours from osaka by non rapid trains.
    i could go on forever but if you really want to know something let me know.

    correct, we have to wait and make sure we get all our reply forms. like just today another person declined the position. so we will try and get an alternate soon.

    Another? How many people have declined it? That's got to be kind of a pain for you guys.

    we have had group c alts here every year that i have been here (4 years). and that usually happens after we get the reply forms call everyone and know who is coming. then someone still backs out. a few times they have made it to japan and then freaked out and left...

    I requested Shiga, so hope I'm one of those people you've got, mark.

    out of curiosity, there have been no talks of the flu and JET have there? it seems like they are getting more and more paranoid about this whole thing...

    I'm sure that happens everywhere. I'm always amazed at the people I meet that have never lived outside of their rural town in whatever country they're from and never been away from their family in any capacity and they decide their first experience with that should be in Japan O_o Pretty much everyone I've met like that at Tokyo Orientation ended up bolting soon after arriving in their prefecture, if not before then.

    Considering you've hit 9 pages without the slightest hint of anyone getting their placement info yet I'd suggest somebody makes a new thread

    Or you can just delete all this discussion ... or I'll make a new "Official" one in a couple of weeks ... ... ...

    Or if someone more responsible wants to take on the task of updating, they can just copy and paste the format I have on the first page.

    nothing wrong with the discussion, in fact I'd rather keep this one around for people to chat in and have another one soley for placement info.

    You could just change the title to unofficial and make a copy as a sticky.

    That would be a good idea, ^_^

    I'll make this one unofficial ... and not create a new one until placements start coming out ... hahah ... as I've learned my lesson on this one! ^_^

    Well ... I can't change titles ... apparently? >.< ... so I just made an announcement on the first post >.<


    EDIT: Nevermind. I'm retarded. I figured out how to change the title I think. =)
