What we're about

Welcome to Osaka New Friends!

Our goal is to provide a place in Osaka where people can connect with each other, build relationships and organize gatherings. Let's make some friends!

We frequently work together with Osaka Pub Crawl, as well as our sister groups in Tokyo. Many of our events coincide with theirs.

We are welcoming all ideas, and anyone who wishes to organize their own event are encouraged to contact us. Maybe you would like to have a luncheon? meditation lessons? ultimate frisbee games? Feel free to include yourself.

This also pertains other MeetUp organizers, as we'd like to promote all that Osaka has to offer, and not just a particular taste or demographic. Come in and have a look!

私たちのゴールは、大阪で人が出会える、交流できる、仲良くなれる場所を提供することです。友達を作りましょう!

私たちは大阪パブクロールと一緒にイベントを開催することが多いです。

イベントを計画したい方、アイディアがある方はご連絡をください。

イベントご参加、イベント企画、お待ちしております!

✨The Blue Pagoda Nakayamadera Hike (With Spec Views of Osaka) ✨

このイベントには英語話さなくていいよ。何人か全く英語話せないよ!!:)
半分外国人と半分日本人参加するので、メッチャいい雰囲気あります。ハイキングに興味があれば、是非来てください:)よろしくお願い致します。
Why should you go on this hike?
Simple, beautiful temples and a gorgeous 5 tiered BLUE pagoda (see in the picture on the post,Seeing it in person is so much better) with a leisurely 3 hour easy hike.
Nakayamadera also is an important temple to pray for safe birth of a child. So if you or someone you know is having a child recommend you get a prayer in here for them or yourself.
After that we take a nice stroll up to Meoto-iwa Enchi. Where we can see a great view of Osaka. Please no clouds haha. We will eat some food there and relax.
We'll also have a couple of fun quizes for some free drinks:)
Where Meet: Hankyu Osaka station (3rd floor near the gates)
Hiking difficulty: is a 3 out of 5 only because the going down part had a slippery section where the path is not sturdy but the actual hike is very easy.
Participation Fee: 1200yen per adult. 300yen for children
Contact: Please message Brandon Larocque for any questions that you might have.
