Hey all, TokyoJimbo here!
So I’ve been trying very hard to get a job here in Japan and it is quite difficult! I’m debating if it would be better to take my currently planned plane back to Hawaii and find a job in Japan from there and then head back, or try to get my visa extended and look for jobs here a bit longer.
I’ve been sending my resume and cover letters to many places and I’ll be following up with them in the next weeks, so we’ll see what happens.
In other news, there hasn’t been another trip to Tohoku yet, but there is one planned for the 12th of this month. The difference this time is that I might actually be staying up there for 3 weeks (i.e., until Hands On Tokyo comes back for its next trip) so that I can help longer and stay with a group that doesn’t speak English; forcing me to improve my Japanese!
Not sure if that will happen yet or not but I’m hoping! It will, of course, make it a lot harder to keep things updated and to look for jobs, but that is a sacrifice I can make.
I love you all and hope you are all doing well. Later!!
