Hope everyone's prepared for the rainy season! Rainy season typically lasts throughout June and judging from the weather in Oita City already, it's going to be pretty ridiculous.
New Page: Renewing Your Visa
Important information about how to renew your visa! Something everyone planning to recontract for a fourth year should take the time to check out.
May 28th, 29th (Wednesday and Thursday), both PAs will be in Tokyo for the PA Conference. Both the new page and OitaJET news will be updated on Tuesday. In addition, due to a change in my class schedule, for the foreseeable future new page updates will be done on Tuesday, OitaJET News updates on Wednesday.
I am also making a separate page for this, but I thought I'd share the resources here. A current JET has made known to me a page created by the Japan Post to help facilitate interactions at the post office. Check these out!
