My name is Alia and I was a JET in Okayama City from 2010 to 2013. I’m currently working at the Nihonbashi Information Center in Tokyo and wanted to pass on some information just in case anyone is looking for something to do during Golden Week or knows anyone else who might be interested. The Nihonbashi Information Center will be running free trial tours on May 3, 4, and 5 in Coredo Muromachi (with lots of yummy samples!) Please see the flier for more details:</p></div></div></div> Wed, 30 Apr 2014 03:39:34 +0000 Alia 869 at http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org Interview JETs in Tokyo and Japan http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org/discussion/863 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p> </p><p class="discussion-body">I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Japanese Studies at the University of Sheffield. My research is about JET programme particpants past and present. To sum up my research, it is about the process of identity and how JET's absorb certain Japanese cultural values and reject others, and how this process creates a link with Japan which strongly influences ones memory and nostalgic attachment, and in turn creates an image of Japan. I've been getting many leads, thank you for contacting me. </p></div></div></div> Fri, 10 Jan 2014 11:26:13 +0000 wushunushar 863 at http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org Survey for JET Alums http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org/discussion/858 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"> <div style="font-family: arial,sans-serif; font-size: 12.727272033691406px;">Adam Fulford, originally from England but based in Japan since 1981,is planning a new training initiative that may be of interest to you.</div></div></div></div> Wed, 18 Sep 2013 08:00:29 +0000 Christian 858 at http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org What is Cob in Japanese? http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org/discussion/840 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"> <p>I'm looking into building an outdoor pizza oven for my next DIY project and ran into a building method using Cob, which is a material similar to Adobe.</p><p>Using Cob would be way cheaper and easier than building a masonry oven so I'm trying to figure out what the Japanese equivalent of Cob is and where I might be able to procure some?</p><p>Any ideas?</p> </div></div></div> Tue, 26 Mar 2013 02:53:01 +0000 filmoreha 840 at http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org How do you like the new site design? http://www.jetaa-tokyo.org/discussion/839 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p>Just updated the design and organization of the site.
