About Hyogo AJET

The Hyogo Association for Japan Exchange and Teaching is a chapter of National AJET that concentrates on providing support a little closer to home. Hyogo AJET is comprised of non-elected volunteers called Prefectural Representatives (PRs). Hyogo is the second largest prefecture in Japan Hyogo AJET aims to serve the JETs that are situated within the six areas of Hyogo: Kobe, Hanshin, Harima, Tajima, Tamba, and Awaji. The goal of the Hyogo AJET PRs is to provide a support network both within and outside the office in order to help you to have a hassle-free and fun time while in Japan.
