So who can tell me about Itsuwa-machi?


Sent you a PM.

Hi Lauren! I'm looking forward to meeting you! I'm in group A, coming from Chicago. What about you? I hope I'll get to see you for the Tokyo orientation, otherwise I'll see you in Amakusan (Amakusama? That might be a bit much...)



Unfortunately, I'm in group B, so I won't see you at Tokyo orientation DX But I'll see you in Amaku"sama" I guess :rwink:

Yo all, I'm an incoming '12 ALT from the UK. I don't have my placement details yet (other than Kumamoto city ofc :]), but I thought I'd meet you all sooner or later anyway so I better drop in and do my thing. Super excited to meet you all and to be a part of yet another incredible adventure. Any other Brits heading in Kumamoto way?

You'll probably all get a message from me sometime soon saying hi, so check your inboxes!

Love J x

Hello everyone, I just got placed in Minamata-City.

Does anyone know anything about it? I can't seem to find anything other than a bunch of gruesome mercury poisoned Japanese people pictures.

Is there anything fun/exciting to do in the town? It seems very isolated from everywhere else.

Hi J, (and Laura!)
Im a second year (soon to be third year) Brit in Kumamoto City, welcome welcome welcome! I am so excited that more Brits are coming! Let me know if you have any questions. Were in the midst of rainy season right now, and we keep dodging typhoons, but by the time you guys get here it will be hot and sunny. I hope youre looking forward to it, Kumamoto City is a really great placement. See you soon!

New ALT from Singapore saying hi! I was a little unsure when I got my placement info, but I feel more cheered up now after doing some reading. Seems like a really nice place :bananadance:
Looking forward to meeting fellow Kumamonites (if that's the word)!

I'm in Kumamoto-shi.... This means I'll very likely be teaching in JHS and SHS?

(oh, love the smilies here, especially the nunchucks LOL!)

Hello panduhmonium! Welcome to the ken, and the city! We have another Singaporean who arrived last year, I'm sure you'll here from him soon enough. You guys should be hearing from our tantosha this week....
And you will be working in JHs and ES. There are only 2 SHS in the city, and one ALT does them both already.
