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
