I got the idea from Norsehawk's thread about who has
visited Japan before.
since we've never been to Japan and it is likely the first question we will be asked in the interview (should we be fortunate enough to get one):
Why do you want to go to Japan?
I have never been but have always wanted to go, but not as a tourist. I want to experience the real Japan (I know its a bit of a loaded term), the non Tokyo/Osaka/Kyoto Japan.
Also, what was your families reaction when you told them about the JET program?
I feel like my family and friends were surprised at first but didn't believe I was serious. The fact that I have a "good" job doesn't help.
