Spotlight: Jason Shon, Kumamoto

Jason Shon

Between making pottery, playing soccer in the prefectural league, and volunteering on an organic farm through World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF), Jason Shon was a busy man on JET. He spent five years in Kumamoto: two as an ALT singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” with his students on the islands of Amakusa, and three as a CIR and Prefectural Advisor at the Kumamoto Prefectural Office. Having finished his time on the JET Programme in the summer of 2014, Jason will return to Japan this November, this time to volunteer as a Communication Coordinator on the Peace Boat’s 86th Voyage through the southern hemisphere.
