Who likes to experience something non-touristy.

Who wants to feel the real culture by interacting with locals.

Who wants to chat with someone with same interests.

Who likes to make new local Japanese friends.


Local Japanese who join this activity is ordinary Japanese who do not have business objectives. Their common interest is to have cultural exchange and practice their English, and more than anything, enjoy meeting new people. Therefore, not all of them speak fluent English, but we think that makes you able to experience the real Japanese culture by interacting with real Japanese.
