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!
