Expo Draws JETs Back to Japan

Tuesday's Daily Yomiuri feature on the Aichi World Expo looked at the many former participants on the JET Program who have come back to work at the event. In particular, the pavilions of program original member countries Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the United States, as well as Canada, which joined the program in its second year. In recent years the program has come in for criticism in terms of its educational benefits, but the return of so many former JETs is proof of its effectiveness in building long-standing, grass roots ties between Japan and young people from around the world.
