Toyama AJET is an organization dedicated to providing opportunities for Toyama’s foreign residents to positively interact and make connections with others in the community. This is accomplished in several ways:
- Social Events. Our social reps organize parties all year long to help you get to know people from all over the prefecture. Whether it’s the beer gardens, holiday parties, or overnight camping trips in Toyama’s far-flung regions, things always get pretty friendly at these events.
- Excursions. No matter the season, Toyama AJET is ready to take the guesswork out of planning trips out of the prefecture. It’ll never be easier to climb Mt. Fuji, fall in love with Kyoto, spend the weekend on Nagano’s Olympic slopes, or check out a sumo tournament in Osaka.
- Charity Events. Toyama AJET’s officers are always thinking of ways to raise money for our favorite charities. In past years we’ve raised loads of yen through fun events like pub quizzes, charity auctions, murder mystery parties, wine tastings, and sushi-eating competitions.
- The TRAM. Toyama AJET’s online magazine. You’ll find articles submitted by members of the community, and maybe even submit something yourself. It’s also the quickest way to get updated on what Toyama AJET is up to.
- Libraries. Our large collection of donated fiction & non-fiction books, as well as some audio and video selections, are housed in Imizu-shi. It’s free to check out, and donations are always welcome.
So why join Toyama AJET?
Toyama AJET is inclusive. Anyone can attend the events and participate in Toyama AJET-organized socials. However, due to the cost of location rental and services provided (food, drinks, lodging, transportation, etc.), there is usually a fee (varies) accompanying the event. In order to keep AJET afloat and to curtail the fee for each event, we encourage you to become Toyama AJET Members for a small fee of ¥2,000. Members receive discounts at most events and trips, so joining not only supports an organization dedicated to to helping you get the most out of your life in Toyama, it saves you money.
