All About GAJET

GAJET is your friendly Gunma JET community and support group. We are here to help make your time in Gunma as fulfilling as possible by bringing you information, connecting you to resources, and building a strong community that enjoys this beautiful prefecture to the fullest! We are the local chapter of AJET, the Association of the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program, and are 100% run by elected volunteer JETs just like you.

We also run the ultra-useful Gunma ALTs Facebook Page, which is perhaps the best way to stay up-to-date on local happenings and news. We’ve got a year of great events ahead and a community which we think is truly fantastic, so please pull up a chair and stay awhile! Don’t be a stranger, unless you are a wild Gunma bear or monkey, in which case, please do stay away.
