A: The FuJET Council is responsible for organizing several FuJET trips and social gatherings, manages the FuJET library, works in collaboration with E4F, publishes the FuJET Kanji Survival Guide , acts as an information source for JETs living in Fukushima, and provides a supportive social network. However, don’t forget that we’re JETs, just like you! If you have any questions, just send us an email and we’ll be happy to answer it to the best of our abilities. Collectively, we’ve got lots of Fukushima-related knowledge and we’re happy to share it with you. We invite you to check out our individual profiles here.
A: There are three Ministers of Fun, one for each of the three main areas of Fukushima: Aizu, Nakadori, Hamadori. They are here to give you a hand if you have questions about your life here or just want someone to talk English to at a normal speed. They plan events big and small in their area of the prefecture in order to highlight tourist attractions and special places. (Places and activities we sometimes overlook since we live so close.) Breaking you up into regions makes it easier for you to be in touch with someone who has been here for a while and who can help keep you up to date with events in your area, and to keep you connected with the JET community. Check out the map below to figure out which region you live in. If you still don’t know after looking at the map, just email us and we’ll tell you!
A: Well, that depends. We’re here to help you as much as we can–-if you want to chat with someone about general day-to-day questions or concerns, you’re more than welcome to shoot us an email. If you’re in need of answers regarding your office or your health, or just want someone to talk to, please contact your Prefectural Advisor who’s available to you any time there’s something on your mind. You can also call the CLAIR JET Line with any questions at (03) 5213-1729, between 9:00 and 6:00. If you’d like anonymous counselling, you can call the Tokyo English Life Line (TELL) at 03-5774-0992 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. The AJET Peer Support Group is available from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. by calling 0120-437-725.
