     It was so nice of Sammy to open his place for hotpot. Thank you so much for Sammy and Michiko san to organize this meet up. Also thank you for everyone who helped preparing and clean up. Nabe was really good and all deserts were great, too! It was a perfect number of people to get to know everyone. I'm sorry I couldn't help for clean-up.

     It was a great social gathering. I was intermixing with all my immediate neighbors. I didn't count heads but there must have been at least 35 of us. Looking forward to meeting some more next time.

     It's a safe environment for cross cultural experience. People can speak Japanese or those who want to meet other Americans and practice English.

     I love it! It may be the best way to recover from winter depression. Meeting and talking with lots of interesting people would be the best cure. Thanks guys!

     Very contributing group because bilingual people can share their good time and food together. Sharing something valuable is crucial part of our life, and this group provides the value!

     Enjoying it so far. Just have to make sure I try to use my "Japanese" more instead of resorting to English.

     This is too much fun. 

    Connie on Jul 11, 2010.

     Who really like Japanese culture and people. 

    Masako on Jun 13, 2010.

  • Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup Group

     This is the best Japanese meetup group on the planet. I travel a lot and have checked 'em out. Lots of activities, so it's easy to participate in some parts even if you can't make it to everything. Oct '08 Update: It's gotten bigger and better since I wrote my earlier comment. Seattle is very lucky to have such an amazing group. You can dabble (like I do), or let it take over your life (LOL). 

    Reed on Jun 7, 2010.

  • Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup Group

     To socialize with people from different cultures, It'll help with learning the languages. 

    Philip on Jan 8, 2010.

  • Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup Group

     Well, our team for the corn-maze didn't stick it out too well, mostly because Ward had on cowboy-boots. :) But that turned out to be just as well, because, had we focussed longer on mud and trivia, we probably wouldn't have had as much fun as we did buying cider and donuts, chatting out in the sun, etc. ... thanks for all your effort, Hitomi-san and other facilitators. For a repeat-trip next year, the scary night-maze might be interesting to try. 

    Tim M. on Oct 25, 2009.

     Make new friends who have same interests. 

    Reiko on Mar 8, 2009.

     Because it is fun and you get to eat good food and the people are facinating!

  • Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup Group

     I am an assistant organizer and attend events as many as possible. Jason try to find many restautans every week. If you don't know many restaurants or want to try restaurants in Seattle area, you can have a good oppotunity to go new places with many friends.

     Anyone wishing to meet a great group of people and also learn about another culture and language this is the group to join. Now I have a great inspiration to really start studying Nihon Go again and become proficient. One meeting with this group has giving me this inspiration.

     It's a great mix of people who all have Japan as their common denominator.
