What we're about

A community of connected cultures, living and enjoying a far east Asian lifestyle in Scotland's culturally diverse and inclusive capital Edinburgh.
Our mission statement is to create a pacific connection between the cultures in far east Asian countries such as Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, and Vietnam and share this with anyone with an interest in these cultures from Edinburgh.

We provide opportunities for dining out, food share, picnics, karaoke, trips away, language exchange, cultural exchange, health and fitness, shows, anime and world cinema films, learning about the latest technologies and professional skill share with an emphasis on a community closer to home.

If you're interested in more being a part of this, please join up and say Hi!

*** We now do a yearly membership fee! First event attendance is free, then £2 for all future events with your membership lasting 1 year starting from the second event you attend.
The group and events have grown in popularity and people require more of my time to create even more fun events! You may not realise that as a Meetup organiser, I pay $98.94 every 6 months to Meetup to be able to manage this group and create events. So chucking £2 at me will not only hurt but help ease the costs of running these events. 🙂 ***

Edinburgh Far East Lifestyle present - our very first podcast episode; East Asians Eat! in conjunction with the Hidden Trax podcast team - is dedicated to bringing you the very best tours around Edinburgh. The podcast is available on the HiddenTrax App on Android or on Spotify, Apple podcasts & Soundcloud. Links here:
