Prefectural Advisors

To assist JETs with adapting to life in a new country, the JET Programme designates a few JETs in each Prefecture as Prefectural Advisors.

Certain ALTs, CIRs, and Japanese local government employees serve as prefectural advisors in each host prefecture/designated city and often work in the prefecture or designated city’s international affairs division or board of education. They can provide useful information for JET participants and contracting organisations, however JET participants should contact their contracting organisation before contacting a prefectural advisor.


Listed below are the current Prefectural Advisors for the JET Programme in Tokushima, along with methods to contact them, as well as a short bio.

Prefectural Advisor and CIR

Aloha (Hello) and Howzit (How's it going?)!
I'm just a local girl from a small island, now living on a slightly larger island. I was born and raised on the island of O'ahu, Hawai‘i. No, I can't surf, nor can I dance the hula (Yes- disappointing, I know). However, I love the people and the melting pot of cultures that Hawai‘i has to offer.
I work in the prefectural office and at TOPIA (Tokushima Prefectural International Exchange Association) as a CIR (Coordinator for International Relations), and I am also your PA (Prefectural Advisor).If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mahalo (Thank You!)!
