Terminology

18 May

I’ll constantly update this page as I get more and more obnoxious about using acronyms and Japanese terms.

JET: Japan Exchanage and Teaching program; ie what I’m doing in Japan

ALT: Assistant Language Teacher; my job

Shinkansen: bullet train

Onsen: hot springs

Ken: prefecture (like a U.S. state)

Shi: city

Omiyage: small gifts you give to coworkers and people who are nice to you
