Please RSVP if you plan on coming. The cafe owner checks our page to see how many tables to put out for us.

Every week, we get together for an informal session, where you can come to practice English or Japanese, socialize about culture, or just sit back and relax. All skill levels are welcome! New people show up every week, and we all have a great time. Please be sure to order some food and/or drink so we will continue to be welcomed there.

Do not be discouraged from coming if you see a small number of RSVPs. There are many people who attend regularly and never RSVP (despite getting their hands slapped repeatedly for this). Typical attendance at these is 20 to 40 people.

After 21:00, those who wish to, go together to a nearby restaurant to grab some dinner. Usually this means Chinese, Korean, or even Japanese food!

Note that this is not a dating meetup. Please refrain from engaging in any behavior that might make someone feel uncomfortable. Our purpose here is to share our love of Japanese culture, and we strive to make this a comfortable environment for all involved. If you feel someone is behaving in an inappropriate manner, please come talk to me or send me a message.

I hope you will join us! お待ちしておりま〜す!
