Tatami Timeshare
Welcome to Tatami Timeshare!! This is a couchsurfing-esque program built by JETs for JETs! Get to know more JETs and JET alumni in your area, across Japan and all around the world! Now you can travel all over Japan and to different countries all while saving money on accommodation and getting a rich experience with locals.
*Please Read The Following Carefully!*
To get started, first we need your information. Once you have submitted this form, we will place your pin on the map (NOT your exact location for security) and send you the link to access! The map will only be shared with Tatami Timeshare members. From that point on, everything is managed by Tatami Timeshare members themselves - email someone you want to stay with, ask hosts for their exact location, and check your email for potential guests. Everyone has the right to refuse. Be safe, have fun, and happy traveling!!

Please note, this community is only open to current as well as past JET program participants living anywhere around the world!

Also note that once your pin goes up on the Tatami Timeshare Google Map, your exact location will not be shown to anyone. Your pin will actually be dropped around the vicinity of your actual location. This is to always keep your exact location private and to make sure that you coordinate your exact location with the person you will host.

If you have any questions, please email us at tatami.timeshare@ajet.net.
