About Us

Welome to Payne’s of Tokyo! A blog sharing tips and tricks of working overseas, sharing travel experiences and our special page dedicated to the JET Programme.

Who are the ‘Payne’s’? We’re actually sisters! We grew up on a cattle property in Queensland, Australia and loved every part of growing up there. After finishing high school, we both moved to Brisbane to study at university.

Georgia Payne studied Education, majoring in history and music at university and Madeline studied a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Japanese and Archaeology, with a Masters in Museum Studies. Throughout their studies both sisters have been fortunate to travel to several countries including Japan, Cyprus, UK, USA, Canada, and many countries throughout Europe.

Obviously we have the travel bug, so we decided to apply for the JET Programme and move to Japan. We moved to Tokyo in August 2019 to start ournew adventure as Assistant Language teachers.
