About

Hello!

Hello and welcome to “My Time In Japan”!

Thank you for visiting my ‘About’ page. My name is Thea and I’m from Cape Town, South Africa. In July 2014, I moved to Japan (Onomichi City, Hiroshima prefecture) as I was accepted to work as an ALT (Assistant Language Teacher) through the JET Programme, teaching English at three Japanese senior-high schools. I created this blog to share my experiences of living and working in Japan.

I remained on the JET Programme for 2 years from 2014 to 2016. Even though my contract has finished and I’m back home, I continue to write about my time spent in Japan, as well as continually provide resources for aspiring JET Programme applicants.

I am always happy to share my thoughts on the JET Programme, as well as help aspiring JETs with their applications, essays and interviews.

All the blog posts I have written over the years regarding the programme can be found on the resource page.

Feel free to comment or e-mail me though the contact page if you have any questions relating to the programme or a query about living in Japan. I will be more than happy to provide whatever information I can.

And as a side note: The name of my blog has changed over the years, reflecting the time at which I was writing:

A Year in Japan‘ – my first year in Japan

A(nother) Year in Japan‘ – my second year in Japan

My Time in Japan‘ – after finishing my time in Japan
