JET placement!  
Brief update since I'm visiting my grandparents - but I got my JET placement, finally!

I'll be in Fuefuki, Yamanashi - Yamanashi was my third choice of prefecture, and its still within a few hours train ride (depending on how much time/money I want to spend) of Tokyo, so I'm pretty happy...but I know nothing about the place XD;; Except that they're apparently famous for their fruit? I haven't heard from my predecessor, and admin approval for the Yamanashi forum is taking a bit so I don't know anyone else who's there yet, but I am cautiously optimistic :D I'm not hell and gone from Tokyo and the area I know/friends who are there, and most of my other friends are not hell and gone from the same general vicinity (except El who had to go settle herself in Hokkaido >>) so one way or another I'm sure it'll turn out awesome!
 
 
Current Mood: hopeful

Mmm, fruit indeed :D I wish I knew more about the area! My organization/predecessor need to contact me already D: But I'm sure it'll be awesome~

We should try and meet up! Maybe in tokyo or something, I don't know how deep in Chiba you'll be...

I'm in Makuhari Baytown, close to Makuhari-Hongo (very close to the Aiba family restaurant!) - so I'm only about 30-40 minutes away from Tokyo by train. We should definitely meet up, and you're welcome to stay over anytime.

Actually, that forest adventure park that Arashi went to in the last concert DVD is in Yamanashi - I was planning to go there on my last vacation, but I never made it. We should do that. *____*

Oh, we'd planned to visit there at some point! :DD so we should definitely visit, and someplace to stay would be lovely. (As soon as I know what kind of living conditions I have, you can assume the offer returned but at the moment I don't know if I would be offering you a strip of floor or a separate room)

Oh, cool! I'd love to go there, I like heights and rope courses :D we should totally do that~
