JET Prefectural websites

The following links are to JET prefectural websites, wikis, Facebook or message boards. If you click on the speech bubble Discuss prefectures in Japan it will take you directly to discussion on the prefecture (if available) at the official Jet Programme forum. Some of these sites are affliated with National AJET while others are not. In some prefectures there are long neglected websites so I have tried to have the most active/relevant website linked to from here. If the link becomes broken, you know of a better link, or there is a new/updated prefectural site please contact us.
