Types of JET Living Situations

Most JETs in Fukuoka live as single-dwellers in jutaku, which are subsidised apartments for government employees or teachers.  This means that most JETs usually have a number of other JETs as their neighbours.  

However, instead of jutaku, some JETs may find themselves in countryside apartments without any foreigners in close proximity.  Also, not all JETs are single-dwellers, some move to Fukuoka with spouses and even children, which means their JET experiences differ to the norm.
