The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme invites third level graduates to participate in international exchange and foreign language education throughout Japan. Established in 1987, the programme has earned a high reputation, both in Japan and overseas, for its progress in social and cultural exchange, and has become one of the largest exchange programmes in the world. There are currently approximately 1000 local government organisations, including 45 prefectures and 20 designated cities hosting 5,528 international participants from 54 countries around the world on the JET Programme. Since Ireland became a participating country in 1988, over 1,200 Irish people have contributed to and enjoyed the programme. In 2019, 43 Irish JETs depart for Japan, and around 100 Irish JETs are currently living and working in Japan.
