Our aim is for people, like you, to maximise your enjoyment by creating exciting, affordable, awesome events in and around Osaka. NOBODY is left out, we make sure EVERYBODY feels included:)

We`ll have events like:

- Language exchange (English, Japanese, Spanish, French, Korean)

- Weekend trips at my friends privately owned beach and 300 hectares of private estate on a nearby island!!!

How are my events different from other party sites and language exchange groups you ask?

Well, I am a certified teacher and i have completed a 6 month teaching course and I run and teach at my own school during the week. I can provide useful tips and hints to speed up the learning process. I can speak Japanese, English, Spanish and Im currently learning Korean!!

As for parties, i have been entertaining people by throwing parties my whole life. The key is making sure no one feels awkward or lonely. My staff make people feel comfortable by making an effort to introduce YOU to other members:)

Everyone, lets CELEBRATE and have a great time!!!

ill see you soon, Andy:)
