Did you just find out about your placement on the JET Programmme? Are you about to be a JET ALT or CIR in Miyagi prefecture? Well, you’re in the right place!
First of all, Congratulations! And welcome to our magnificent prefecture of Miyagi.
Miyagi is a serene and peaceful prefecture filled with the friendliest people and a close knit, pleasant JET community. MAJET is here to ensure that we maintain these relationships by chiilin’ out together or just partying hard every chance we get. So there’s really no need to worry about making friends. We gotchu!
And just in case you were uncertain about your placement, I’d like to reassure you by saying that being a JET in Miyagi has been the greatest experience of my life, and there are a bunch of others who can attest to that.
In the meanwhile, join our MAJET Facebook page. And feel free to drop MAJET an email or inbox us on Facebook with any concerns or even just to say hi. We’re all working around the clock to make sure your transition into Miyagi goes as smoothly as possible.
We look forward to meeting each and every one of you. See you in a couple of months!
- Jason Jetnarayan
(MAJET Committee 17/18 Vice President)
It's elections season and it's time to put your faith in a friend to usher us into a new era here in Miyagi. First of all, we require nominees for the MAJET committee so if you think you have what it takes to make our prefecture even more awesome than it currently is then go ahead and apply for any one of the current positions on the MAJET 2018/2019 committee. Just drop us an email telling us a little bit about yourself, your goals and aspirations for MAJET and the role you think is the best fit for you.
Scroll through the positions below to see what it's all about:
We're currently also considering an addition to the team to fill the position of "Web master". The role would require a good knowledge and experience working with coding, blogging, social media, image editing... Ultimately someone creative enough to give MAJET a strong online presence.
Also feel free to mail us regarding further details if you'd like to know more about their role. Just keep in mind that time is running out and the final deadline for new committee members is May 15th!
Hope to you from you ASAP!

Okay! So let's get this show on the road!
It's a new JET year and nothing makes this cycle more special than our new JETs themselves.
I'm sure we all fondly remember being a newbie with the hope of making new friends in a foreign land. Well, senpai JETs, it's on you to show our new JETs just how awesome our prefecture can be.
And new JETs, this is the perfect opportunity to meet new people and see all that Tohoku's grandest city has to offer.
It's our annual MAJET Welcome Party! And each and every one of you Miyagi JETs are invited.
You can expect a memorable night with an 8 course Japanese style dinner and all you can drink, alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. Thereafter feel free to explore Sendai and enjoy more drinking at one of the many bars, karaoke if you'd like to flex those vocal cords, Mario Kart and claw machines at the gaming arcades, or all of the above. Whichever tickles your fancy.

Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday!! It was our first event as the new MAJET Committee and it was a lot of fun!
After a successful journey to Sapporo for Yuki Matsuri, MAJET put on our first ever Izakaya Quiz in Sendai during March! (To be distinguished from prior pub quizzes.)
Four teams competed in a Jeopardy-style battle, and fortunately there were no casualties by the end of the night! In April, we had a less successful hanami event; however, we blame it on the weather!
Now that things have finally warmed up in Miyagi, we would like to announce the next round of events! In late May or early June, we will organize a Mt. Kurikoma climb - our first event of this kind. In late June, we will have our annual Leavers Party on Oshima Island. And in July, we will once again hold the Miyagi International Art & Culture Show! More details on these events can be found on their respective pages. Hope you can make it out!
With MAJET Halloween and MAJET Thanksgiving now successfully behind us, it is time to start getting ready for our next big event, the annual journey to Hokkaido for the Sapporo Snow Festival (or Yuki Matsuri)!
The basic details for the trip are now available here: http://www.ajetmiyagi.net/sapporo-snow-festival-2014.html, and the official sign-up form as well as furikomi details will be coming very soon! We will keep you posted!
That sad (or happy, depending on how you look at it) time of the year is coming when we must say goodbye to those who are leaving Miyagi.
Following tradition, this year's Leavers Party will take place on Oshima Island on Saturday, July 6.
For more information (and to sign up!), please check out: the Oshima Leavers Party page.
Hope to see you there whether you are leaving or staying!
