June is here and so is the warm weather. It’s the season to get out, say hi to friends new and old, and remember how much fun our Blue Forest can be. To remind you about where to check out some of that fun, we have a quick message for you from Chris Orr, one of our very own CIRs!
Good day splendid JETs of Aomori Prefecture! My name’s Chris Orr and I’m the CIR for Aomori City Hall. I just wanted to let you guys know we’ve started an English tourism Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/aomoricity.tourism
It’s titled “Aomori Unearthed” (a play on all the Jomon relics here as well as the fact Aomori is one of Japan’s lesser known cities). We’ll be posting all kinds of things from videos to local event information, so please like the page if you want to be kept up to date on this fine city!
Now on we go! In this issue we have:
