☆★ ようこそ! Welcome to Japan! ★☆

If you are looking for a trip in the area around Tokyo (mostly day-trips and some overnight trips), you've come to the right place!

★What’s this meetup group about?

This meetup group is for people who are interested in weekend (or national holiday) trips from Tokyo. We are a community of travelers looking for likeminded people for their next trip in Japan. Let's explore Japan and make new friends at the same time!


★Who should join our trips / events?

Anyone, really! As long as you are keen to meet some new friends, and check out a new place in Japan!
Perhaps you are an avid traveler who wants to explore all corners of Japan, or simply looking for something different to do over the weekend... Or perhaps you just want to meet people with similar interest, or just practice your English / Japanese language skills.. Everyone is welcomed to join us!

★Must I pay membership / participation fees?

Most trips are run by JAMBO, with the idea of "Having Fun, Doing Good." These are clearly marked and 1000 yen is charged to support the charity of the month, which is announced at the meeting site. Other organizers may or may not charge - all charges are clearly written on the event description. Participants must pay for their own transport / food / accommodation expenses (of course, this varies according to each trip - your organiser will give you a rough estimate of the expenses).
