Welcome!

 

The goal of this wiki is to serve as a collection of unofficial information specific to Kumamoto's JET Programme participants.  We say 'unofficial' because while most of this information will hold true for the majority of JETs in Kumamoto, there will be occasional exceptions.  You should always get the official word on anything from your Contracting Organization.  Barring that, feel free to contact the PAs directly.
