Celebrating hanami overseas
Part of the JET experience is taking a little bit of Japan home afterward.
It's fun to see how the members of the Jamaica and Singapore chapters bring traditions like hanami into their lives far from Japan, whether it's JJETAA's Annual Picnic by the Poui or JETAASG's Tropical Hanami.
These are just two of the many interesting articles included in the newsletters put out by each chapter looking back over their activities in 2015-2016. There are also reminiscences on time spent on the Programme, reports on chapter activities to support both new JETs and new alumni, and a sampling of activities from beach cleanups to yukata workshops.
Jamaica's year in review is here and Singapore's is here. Enjoy!
