What we're about

ようこそ! Welcome to 'I LOVE JAPAN!' Meetups!

Who We Are

Japanese Meetup is set up to support the growing Japanese learners community and to enjoy all the great Japanese themed events and venues in the greater Los Angeles area.

Our mission is to enjoy all things Japanese and to meet other Japanophiles.

Feel free to contact the Organizer of the group if you know of an upcoming event that you would like to attend. We'll make an effort to put it on the calendar for all members. Please give 2-3 weeks notice before the event.

What We Do

Connect the native and non-native speakers with their common interests related to the Japanese language and culture and help them enjoy all things Japanese.

Share the Japanese language and culture with like minded people that make up this group.
