As of 2015, there are 5 JETs covering the Bungo-Ono area, all living in Miemachi.
Four ALTs support Elementary Schools and Junior High Schools across the region, and are contracted by the Bungo-ono Board of Education. There is also one High School ALT at Mie Sogo High school, who visits schools in Oita and Taketa.
JETs can choose their own accommodation, though usually inherit that of their predecessors. BOE JETs require a car to travel between schools, though the Mie area is so spread out that all JETs have cars regardless.
