Back in Japan - Jason's Adventures Phase 3

Hello All -

I made it back to Japan earlier this month and right now I'm in the process of getting the necessary visas etc to allow me to start work at the university.

I'm living in another rural town - much like Taisha where I lived before - but this time I'm not with JET, but I've been hired to teach English at a fairly small university.

I'll have Freshmen and Sophomores my first year and also be helping out with their language support room in the media center. Should be plenty to keep me busy, and lots of new challenges as I've never taught that age student before.

September has been really hot and humid so far, but I'm settling back in somewhat - today was actually the first "coolish" day we've had so far - haven't had to turn on the aircon once today so far, which is nice.

I'm watching sumo and eating ramen and getting back into some of my old habits.

I'll be moving into my new apartment in mid-October, and I've been lucky so far as local folks - new friends - have been nice enough to offer me a place to stay until then.

I hope to have lots of new adventures in Japan to tell you about.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Jason,

As a former JET who is also teaching at a University, I would like to say welcome back to Japan. Despite having completed JET before discovering your Youtube videos, I have enjoyed watching them. Keep up the good work, I'm sure you helped numerous people aspiring to come to Japan!
