Farewell Beer Garden

July 20, 2019 | | No Comments

With summer just around the corner, it’s time again to say farewell to our fellow JETs departing from the programme. Join GAJET and many leaving JETs for our annual Farewell Beer Garden on July 20 from 5:00 pm.

We will be meeting at the rooftop beer garden at the Takashimaya building near Takasaki station (map here).

You are free to come and leave as you please, although we recommend coming early to get the most out of your entry fee (and to say your goodbyes). Entry is 3,000 yen for males and 2,600 for females. This price includes all-you-can-eat and drink!

For more information, check out the Facebook event page or contact a GAJET rep!

Feel free to join anytime from 11:30 in the morning. We will be gathering at Kannonyama Family Park (more info can be found here).

Cost of the BBQ is 1000 yen per person (500 yen if vegetarian). Drinking is possible, but remember to BYOB.

Gunma Games and Welcome Beer Garden

September 1, 2018 | | No Comments

Looking for a way to meet new people in Gunma while having fun and competing? Say no more! It’s almost time for the sixth annual Gunma Games!

Never heard of the Gunma Games? The Gunma Games is usually the first large GAJET event after the new JETs arrive in Gunma. Come on out and represent your region in this Olympic-style sporting event! Events can range from trivia, paper crane folding, relay-race, and of course the ever-popular Ultimate Cabbage!

Athletes and non-athletes alike are welcome to participate. Regardless of your abilities, you’ll be sure to have a fun time.

The Gunma Games will be held on September 1st at Takasaki Ishihara Green Space. Please arrive by 11:30 as the opening ceremonies will commence at noon.

The Gunma Games wouldn’t be complete without the following Welcome Beer Garden. There’s no better way to end off a day in the sun than with drinking with your fellow competitors. Everyone is welcome to join us as the Takasaki Takashiyama Rooftop Beer Garden after the festivities.

Please sign up via the google document (click here), and remember to wear your region appropriate color to the event (PS. Speak to your regional representative if you don’t know what color you are)!

Time: Gunma Games (11:30 – 16:00) and Welcome Beer Garden (17:00 – 21:00)

Fee: Gunma Games (free) and Welcome Beer Garden (3,000 for males and 2,600 for females)
