We're the area's most active Japanese Meetup, with a lively group of people who speak or are learning Japanese.
We have regular, casual meetings to practice Japanese, talk about trips to Japan, and interact with other Japanese speakers.
Native speakers are welcomed, intermediate Japanese speakers get lots of practice, and beginners are encouraged to ask questions to learn more.
Most of the time we simply have casual conversations in Japanese and English. We rarely set an agenda. If you're trying to learn something specific, please feel free to bring materials or books that cover your topic and feel free to ask for help. This isn't a classroom. We don't have any formal lesson plans, but many people will be glad to help you out on something with which you're struggling.
