Mombusho English Fellow Publishes New Book

Joe Palermo went to Japan as a Mombusho English Fellow (MEF) from 1982-83 (pre-JET), and then launched a business career and lived there for a total of eight years. He has published a new book called No Pianos, Pets or Foreigners! My Life in Japan in the 80′s about his Japan experience where he lived in Gunma, Saitama and Tokyo.

From the book:

A young Japanese woman was running through Tokyo Station screaming “Save me! Save me!” There was a Japanese man chasing her and closing in. He grabbed her wrist and caught her about 10 feet in front of me. The woman was still yelling “Save me! Save Me!” but the Japanese people in the crowded station ignored her, not wanting to get involved.

From the author:

This is the beginning of just one of the stories from my experience living in Japan in the 1980’s, where I had moved right after graduating university. It was still rare to see an American who could speak Japanese fluently. This book guides the reader though my many adventures navigating through Japanese culture while living in the outskirts of Tokyo, as well as Tokyo proper.

No Pianos, Pets or Foreigners! is currently available for free on Kindle Unlimited and $5.99 paperback on Amazon.

Shunzo Ohno Runner Album Release

An award-winning songwriter and composer, Shunzo Ohno is regarded as one of the most innovative and influential trumpeters today. His work with jazz legends Gil Evans, Art Blakey and Wayne Shorter combines his fresh vibrance with a tapestry of soulful inspiring grooves, not to be missed. Runner, his 18th album as a leader, kicks off with a fourpiece symphonic suite aptly titled “Epic,” which takes major cues from Evans as it unleashes Ohno’s captivating mastery as a trumpeter over his dynamic symphonic vision. Like all of Ohno’s recordings, Runner is an ode to perseverance, and bold strength with cinematic currents of fearless life force.

Internship: Ashinaga Japan Internship Program (Tokyo, Japan)


Posted by Sydney Sparrow. Click here to join the JETwit Jobs Google Group and receive job listings even sooner by email


Position: Internship Opportunities
Posted by: Ashinaga
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Contract: Full-Time

Here are internships passed along to us directly from Ashinaga: 

The Ashinaga Internship Program began in 2013 as an English teaching program for students in Japan and Uganda, which enabled interns to acquire the problem-solving skills and adaptability needed in multicultural environments.
 
Since then, our program has grown to encompass a variety of departments and functions. Interns now have the ability to choose between a number of different fields within the organization and we hope that by tapping the minds of intellectuals from all over the world we’ll be able to turn Ashinaga into an all-embracing, international NGO. To date we have had interns from over 50 global universities in several dozen countries.
 
We invite you to join us on our journey!
 
Ashinaga Japan Internships
 
Japan-based interns work a variety of different teams at our HQ in Tokyo or our Tokyo or Kobe Kokoro-juku dormitories. Interns work five times a week and are guided through their projects by a dedicated team supervisor, simultaneously gaining transferable skills and an insight into working at an international NGO.
 
Interns live in the Tokyo Kokoro-Juku or Kobe Kokoro-Juku dormitories, where they can see the real-world impact their work has whilst fostering invaluable relationships with Ashinaga scholars from Japan and sub-Saharan Africa.
 
In addition to general team-based projects, interns will participate in our Tohoku Program. This program will allow interns to visit our Sendai Rainbow House facility, tour areas affected by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, hear testimonials from those affected, and see the reconstruction efforts in the region first-hand.
