めんそーれ incoming OkiJETs

Welcome to all the incoming OkiJETs for 2017! While we’re sad to see a number of OkiJETs leaving us we’re looking forward to meeting all you newcomers. We’re sure you’re looking forward to arriving by now so why not take a look at the OkiJET welcome videos page for a great preview of your year(s) ahead.

Also, please come and say hello on the OkiJETs Facebook group which is a great place to ask general questions about work and home life in Okinawa.

This site contains a wealth of information about what to expect and it’s all written by previous and current OkiJETs so please take a look around and start getting excited.
