Congratulations, you are a JET! You are going to be living in Japan for a year or more! Are you already bursting with questions? Do not worry, it is completely normal! Many JETs have done what you are about to do, and we would like to make it easier for you.

If you read through our Survival Guide, attend our outgoing-centric events to learn more about life in Japan, organize local meetups, and contact a senpai through our database, we think you will be more than ready.

Our initiatives focus on providing support to help educate and prepare new JETs for a smooth and smart transition to their lives in Japan and on the JET Programme.
