    Yay, looks like we'll be near each other! What kind of placement did you request out of curiosity? I asked for rural Niigata-ken, so I think this is great, haha.

    Another Niigata-Ken incomer here!

    I still haven't been informed of a city or town though, I just know the prefecture. I assume this is a pretty common situation? Either way, I'm pretty psyched.
    Seeing as it's on the coast, does anyone know if surfing is possible in Niigata ken??

    Either way, look forward to meeting you all!

    Whoa this is way delayed sorry >_< hah I didn't request any place in particular..it may have been a bad idea but this second time around I was more feeling like I don't care where you send me...just send me! I'm really excited though ^_^ And yeah woot! Someone remotely close to my placement is good news..my friend currently in JET is like 7 hours away bleeeeh

    Haha yeah, I'm glad to hear others on ITIL will be near me! There are 3 others from LA going to Niigata as well, but I don't know them.

    If he wants. It would be cool to get the know the new Niigata people.

    They didn't put you in the Omi part of Itoigawa did they? They love people from Oregon there. It's about as far south as you can go in Niigata-ken. Much closer to get to Toyama or even Nagano than Niigata City.

    I actually have no idea yet O_O It would be a good thing if I was placed somewhere where they liked people from my state though. Hmm odd that they would love Oregonians specifically...someone must have made quite the impression.

    Well, the JHS sends some of their kids every summer to Portland. So they prefer male JET's from Oregon.

    Anyway Itoigawa is a bit inaka. Good if you like outdoors stuff.

    You'll get to see fossilized dinasour poo in your local orientation.
