Gokon is a popular group date in Japan.

How it works?
Two friends (leaders) of the opposite gender decide on a date and a place, as well as the number of people in each team. Then they both invite a few friends of their gender, making sure the numbers in each group are balanced. On the selected date, everyone meets at the restaurant the team leaders have picked, and the fun begins.

Why Gokon?
Although there are many ways to meet new friends, meeting new people through your own friends is often the most reliable way.

Who can join?
Any eligible singles or people looking to be single again.

Why use Meet-up?
This way, we can also spice up the Gokon at different venues and themes.
