The Wide Island View is the webzine written for and by members of The JET Programme in Hiroshima, Japan. Created in November 2006, the Wide Island View began as a PDF newsletter emailed to members every two months. In June 2009, the publication moved online and now posts fresh content every week. Generally speaking, the site is updated every Monday.
In addition to news and info about events for Hiroshima JETs, the Wide Island View publishes content of interest to JETs throughout Japan, including articles about travel, Japanese culture, studying Japanese, recipes and more. All JETs and JET alumni are encouraged to contribute, as well as other members of the English speaking community throughout Japan.
