Facebook is a very popular social networking site. It's a great way to keep in touch with friends and family both inside and outside Japan. Facebook is also a great way to kill time at school and many JETs, past and present, are on it so please check it out if you haven't already.
Here are some JET/Hyogo related groups you may want to consider joining when you are on Facebook:
Hyogo AJET: for all JETs in Hyogo
Tajima: for the JETs in Northern Hyogo
To the 4 Boroughs: for all JETs in Tarumi-ku, Suma-ku, Nishi-ku and Akashi-shi.
National AJET: for all JETs.
Hyogo Times: for guidelines for submitting articles, etc. to the Hyogo Times. You can also leave feedback on current and recent issues here.
