Kumamoto JET

This is probably the droid you are looking for.

While KumAJET’s website is about bringing people together and having fun, the Kumamoto JET website is a completely different resource that focuses on the more practical aspects of living in Japan and Kumamoto Prefecture.

The Kumamoto JET website covers things like filing taxes, getting your driver’s license in Japan, information about Visas, everyday life, support services, teaching English, and much more!


Tofugu is a fun website that covers everyday living in Japan, the ALT life, Japanese pop culture, and of course, the many things you can do in Japan!

Tofugu’s travel archives let you search all articles about travel in Japan, and feature a function that categorizes travel opportunities by prefecture. Definitely check it out!
