Have you been to Japan before?

Yes, but only in the Kanto region (Tokyo, Gunma, Nagano, Niigata).

Are you planning to go to Japan in the near future? When?

I want to go see Kyoto/Nara to start with, but I'd love to see Yakushima and down to Okinawa too. There's so much to see! I want to climb Mt. Fuji too.


I'm Mike and I actually do speak Japanese since my parents only speak Japanese to me. However, these days as I'm away from home, I use the language less and less, so I'd like to get my exposure back up.

What Mike K. is saying about this Meetup Group

Everyone is very devoted to learning the language and I was highly impressed at each one's level.
