Adèle-Elise just got back from two fantastic years as an ALT in Murakami, Niigata (2011-2013). During that time, she had the opportunity to be a Tokyo Orientation Assistant and Prefectural Orientation presenter, not to mention an AJET representative for her region, organizing social and cultural events. Adele loves Japanese green tea, desperately misses conbinis and onsen, and looks forward to further opportunities to connect with past and present JETs and the local Japanese community!
