September 2, 2018 | Blog, GAJET Events, JET Life | No Comments

When the dust settled, it was the team in green who hoisted the coveted Golden Cabbage; the second consecutive year in which the Tobu region would win the late-summer classic.

ALTs from all across Gunma traveled to Takasaki as the Gunma Games returned for its sixth iteration on September 1. (more…)

Welcome to Gunma! You’ve just arrived in Japan (more specifically, Gunma), and have spent the past few days trying to get acclimated to your new home. Perhaps you’ve been fighting the sweltering heat, navigating the soy-sauce aisle at your local grocery store, and facing off against other daily challenges which would not be a problem back in your home country.

Regardless of how your new adventures in Gunma have been, it’s definitely time for a proper welcome for the new JETs. GAJET is hosting a Welcome Party on Friday, August 17. Hosted by your lovely GAJET Seibu Reps, the party is aimed towards new JETs living in Gunma’s Seibu region (Takasaki, Kanra, Tomioka, Shimonita, Kanna, Uenomura, Nanmoku, Annaka, and Fujioka). Of course, everyone – new, old, and non-Seibu JETs – is welcome to come!

The party will be hosted at Gru Cafe and Restaurant in Takasaki City, and festivities will be from 6 PM to 9 PM. The cost for the event will be ¥2,700 per person, and will cover two drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) as well as a buffet-style pasta menu. Registration is mandatory via Google Documents (click here). Please confirm your attendence by August 13th (those who cancel after this date will still be charged). For more information, please visit the Facebook event page or contact your Seibu Reps.
