From your friendly AJET Rep: September 2013

Hello Hyogo,


First off, thanks to all of you who came to the welcome party, I had loads of fun meeting some fresh and familiar faces. Let’s continue partying this September! See the delights of our neighboring prefecture by coming on the Hyogo AJET Osaka night out on Saturday 28th September. The night will consist of a few bars, a club and maybe a sleep in the notorious Capsule hotel – a must-do in Japan. See the Hyogo AJET Facebook event for all the details, and click ‘going’!


As part of the HAJET committee I must shamelessly plug the Hyogo AJET Book Club once more. I feel you may be sick of me popping up on your Facebook notifications but alas I am popping up here too; I’ll keep it brief…

The book: Before I Go To Sleep by S.J Watson. The date: Sunday 6th October. The place: somewhere in Sannomiya, still tbc (but additional venues may come up for those further afield), check the Facebook event for updates.


September is now upon us and the start of the school term begins again. I hope all you new JETs have settled in a little bit into your new homes and schools. Enjoy meeting your returning students but be prepared as they might not be so fresh-faced after the long brutal summer. My advice: wear a kawaii accessory or show off a souvenir from your summer travels to win them over again, or for the first time. I’m opting for a bow in my hair and a postcard from Paris.


Now let’s go through the motions of opening ceremonies then get into the classroom, I’m itching to get away from this desk!


Hope to see a lot of you soon,
