any Canadians in the Shigoku area??
small question though, I've noticed that some people already know which shi they're going, but in my letter it only states that I got placed in Tokushima-ken, but doesn't say anything more in detail. Should I expect more information soon? Or is something missing?
At first I was a bit dismayed at not having been placed in any of my picks at all (all three were in Kyushu)
But after reading about Shigoku for a bit, I'm actually quite pleased with my placement!! Sounds like a fantastic place!
Welcome to Tokushima! I'm a fellow Canadian currently living in Tokushima city. Don't worry about not knowing where in Tokushima you'll be yet. There are a lot of great placements here and I'm sure your predecessor will be in touch soon. If you have any questions feel free to jump over to the regional information thread and ask, or find us on facebook (just look for "current tokushima jets")
I'm really happy here. Tokushima is close enough to Osaka and Kobe that you can go for a weekend, but also has enough to do closer to home as well. And Shikoku has the 88 temple pilgrimage if that strikes your fancy. Looking forward to meeting you!
