Have you ever wanted to ask a Japanese person directly about why they do what they do or what they think about? This is a group for anyone interested in Japanese culture and language and in communicating with people. This group was started so that we could all meet a lot of interesting people.

One of our main activities is the "Why Battle". This is a informal and non-serious debate style game, which pitches a team of Japanese people against a team of foreigners. We'll be able to   discuss a lot of things in a fun and safe environment. Be rest assured that our aim is not to fight, but to end up shaking hands in understanding and friendship with one another.

Let's get together and solve those mysteries we've been wondering about with each other!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
