    Just curious as to how many of you have heard anything about your placements branch? It's been said a bit on here that Yokohama is a great branch. Even though it is quite big, I am trying to get further away from Tokyo, but I'm told the further away I go the worse the branches are. Really looking forward to what you all have to say once you're over there for a bit! : )

    I haven't heard anything from my branch (Tokyo 1) in terms of updates, but when I did ask a question, I got a reply fairly quickly. The people in Yokohama seem to be hearing about their apartments before training, while most of us have to wait until we get there.

    Tokyo Branch 1 is pretty good about getting with people if they have questions. I have been really happy working with them this year. They just recently got fully staffed up. Having said that, if there is any delay in returning messages to you, not only are they dealing with all the incoming people, they also have to deal with the transfer requests, hustling BoEs for contracts and a number of us needing to get our work visas renewed.

    Incidentally zombiekelly, I can't speak with 100% certainty but I am pretty sure I know where you will be living and what school you will be teaching at. If you so desire, drop me a private message and I can give you the info on that and the contact information of the ALT you will (most likely) be replacing.

    My degree is in psychology, so this is about the 90th time I've heard some of these.

    Creepy doesn't even begin to describe it. I think I seen this guy in the pictures of the training in Narita last year. If he's there again this year, I am deathly afraid for my sanity.

    How communicative have your branches been with you? The Nagoya branch is as silent as anything. :S

    If I email them about something, they will reply. But don't really say much else except if I need to know something, i.e. what to bring with me to training. Currently waiting to hear about which school I'm teaching at.

    Thanks for answering. I was just curious because it seems like a number of people on Facebook have had a lot of emails from their branches. But I guess it isn't as odd as I thought it was though for branches to be kind of quiet.

    I'm with the Hamamatsu branch. They emailed me a while ago with apartment details, and I asked them a question about training and the address for my apartment. I got a reply both times really quickly. I wish I knew the names of my schools or how many I'm at.

    Ah, lucky. I haven't heard anything about apartments. The last call I got from them was about a placement change. I wonder if they can still change placements this late in the game...Anywho, I prolly won't learn about my apartment till training, and I know there's not a Leopalace where I am going
