I’ve been approved for a Japanese working holiday visa, will be flying out in just under 5 weeks!
I knew 2012 was going to be a year of huge change, but this takes the cake. The coming months will be a huge overload of amazing as I take in tons of festivals and other events around the country. The visa is valid for up to a year, so the plan is find work to continue funding my travels. Any job suggestions would be much appreciated.
After a number of unsuccessful JET applications it feels great to be finally making it to Japan under my own steam, but as excited as I am about this chance to pursue a dream, I’m also incredibly sad to depart my current job. GMG Radio have been a great employer, putting up with me for over 4 years. Its definitely a risk to resign from a stable job in this horrible economic climate, but this was an opportunity I just couldn’t pass up. I’m leaving on good terms though, so it’s my hope to work for them again one day.
We fly out on June 24th, so stay tuned for loads of posts as I travel Japan for the first time in almost three years – cannot wait!
