Hey there guys,
This is Jody...i'm a 3rd, going into my 4th year JET from Jamaica. I live in Yamanashi Prefecture....which is about 1 hr and 30 mins from Tokyo, and 2 hours max from Yokohama, and Saitama. So if anyone is placed in and around those areas feel free to give me a shout.
I haven't been able to thoroughly read through your posts...but I am a past T.O.A (Tokyo Orientation Assistant) as well as a Prefectural Presenter ( so I pretty much, offer advice, and counsel to anyone who needs it pre-arrival, post arrival, and pretty much as long as you're here).
Feel free to I.M. me, or to ask any questions you may have regarding prepping, etc....I look forward to meeting you all...either this year once again in Tokyo during orientation, and more than likely at your respective Embassy events....
I wish you all the best....it's about to be good times!!!
