Goodbye from Brian, the CIR in Kizugawa 木津川市国際交流員ブライアン氏からの退任の挨拶

July marks the season where a lot of JET Programme participants are leaving and new ones coming. 3 CIRs participating in this blog will be leaving at the end of this month: the CIRs in Kizugawa (Brian), in Seika (Jake) and at the Kyoto Prefectural International Center (Alice).

Here are a few words from Brian.




Wow how time flies. Three years have passed since I made my debut on this blog. Through the summer heat and winter chills, I have had a wonderful time living in such a pretty place like Kizugawa in Kyoto.


Through the Kyoto CIRs’ efforts, I hope more international residents can call Kyoto their comfortable home. And also I hope more natives all over Kyoto will be interested in traveling and experiencing different cultures, and become global citizens of the world. From understanding and interacting, make the world a better place. Thank you, Kyoto. See you around!
