Mystery in the mountains: Piecing together the fate of a downed American aircrew in rural Japan by JET alumnus, David Caprara (Nara-ken, 2012-2014)

JET alumus, David Caprara (Nara-ken, 2012-2014) has been working as a journalist post-JET. He credits his time on the JET Programme to help his career. For three years, he worked in New York City for two Japanese media outlets, NHK, and the Tokyo Shimbun. Before that, he was a freelancer for a wide array of international outlets around the world. He recently wrote an article for the Japan Times surrounding some rumors he heard in Nara that a plane had crashed into the holiest mountain of the Kumano Kodo during WWII and decided to conduct some research into this as a journalist. It sort of puts a highlight on the bond between the US and Japan and on JETs and their placements.
