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