My coordinator has just put me in contact with a Nara JET alumni! She is awesome and has graciously offered to answer any of my questions. This person, combined with the Nara PA, and some users on ITIL make up my "informant corps." I should be hearing from my actual CO and predecessor in the coming weeks, but the informant corps will have to do for now.


  1. Hey. I'm Matt. I'm from Ohio, and I've been a Nara JET for the last 4 years (almost). I'll be starting my 5th year when you arrive. Right now, I'm also technically the oldest Nara JET at 38 years old. I live in Oyodo, in the area known as Yoshino-Gun. Welcome to Nara-ken!

  2. Awesome! So I'm going to assume you love living in Nara considering how many times you've recontracted? What are some of you favorite things about Nara?
