Mokuyokai is a Canadian/Japanese social society with a 30 year history. Donwakai is it's monthly pub night.
At the Donwakai, you will meet approximately 60 people who have a strong connection to Japan: teachers, travellers, students, business people and others from Canada, Japan and elsewhere. You don't have to speak Japanese to attend this event, but you should have a strong interest in or connection to Japan. Most of our participants have lived or travelled in Japan at some point in their lives. We also have one Japanese-only table and one English-only table (the rest of the tables are whatever the participants are speaking).
So if you want to network, share experiences about Japan, learn more about Mokuyokai or just meet like minded people, then don't miss this event!
The atmosphere is casual and feel free to invite a friend. The Donwakai is on the 2nd floor – come in through the main entrance on Smithe Street and watch for the notices. In order to keep the Donwakai going strong, participants are required to order something off the menu (minimum of $5 before taxes and gratuities) but we'll still provide some appetizers. On Thursdays, Ceilis has two fab deals: $5 build-your-own-burger and $5.50 Keith's Pints. The burgers are especially popular. Don't forget your ID and please remember to tip your server.
