make sure you include the JET-plexes for AWESOME FREE ACCOMODATION OPTIONS (and most likely a complimentary tongue massage)

you must change the lyrics in the Red Hot Chilli Pepper`s song "Californication" to "Koriyama Station". It`s a tradition for anytime you go to karaoke.

hehe that's actually funny  ;D

Nice title Erise!
For the newbies coming to Koriyama, you must change the lyrics in the Red Hot Chilli Pepper`s song "Californication" to "Koriyama Station". It`s a tradition for anytime you go to karaoke.

lots of people coming to koriyama this year (since almost all the jets are leaving  !fpalm)! lots of people come to koriyama for things and only hang out by the station. but that's not all that's there.

so us at the local boe have been making a google map of koriyama relevant to jets. it's mostly for the koriyamans but i figure it'll be helpful for anyone. feel free to add or edit places (i'm looking at you shs jets <3) if you know anything useful about tohoku's second biggest "conurbanisation." note that you'll need to sign up with the devil a google account to edit it.

Koriyama places of interest for JETs

Also, depending on what grades u will be teaching, I regret not bringing a yearbook from high school cuz school life is so different here and my students are all so interested in seeing what   My high school experience was like.

Bring toothpaste from home - the stuff here doesn't have fluoride and just isn't the same.

Aquafresh Protect is available, and has flouride. Look for フッ素 in the ingredients.

docomo are releasing a SIM-only packet-houdai deal in august, i think. it's 4000 yen plus any calls you make.

anybody interested in using a smartphone and downloading/browsing like the dickens on in it would be wise to investigate it.

It is rare for gaijin to have Japanese boyfriends. But not so much to have another gaijin boyfriend.

As I said, there are many couples here dating - some live close (40 mins to an hour away), so live further away (2 hours).

As for long distance (ie, over seas), it depends on how committed you are - if you want it to work, it will....

I am sure a few other people will add to this thread - seeming as I had nothing tying me down when I left, I can't answer that question for you :)


I wouldn`t say it is rare just not as common as guys dating J-girls (who are more keen to find a fella and get married). I think, if you like J-guys then it is perfectly possible. Perhaps there is less interest from the female gaijin to date a j-guy or something

From my female friends who studied Japanese with me and came over to Japan last year, two are married to J-guys and another girl is dating one. And lots of the girls here have dated/had sexy times with J-boys. So poo poo to it being rare


It seems like long distance relationships tend not to work, especially with all of our sexy FuJETs around the place (ooh yeah, danny murty, im looking at you) but that is definitely not true in every case.

I'm gay, innit.

+1  Find it SO ridiculous when I hear the generalization that foreign women don't date Japanese guys this and that.   

About the packing would agree with everyone else really easy to overpack.  Think you can find most things here.
