Event Details


This Meetup is for anybody who wants to learn Japanese language and culture, practice English and Japanese conversation. The venue is shared office space with relaxed atmosphere. We would like to plan activities such as short Japanese lessons and cultural presentations utilizing a projector, screen, and audio system.

We will have a special program “Let’s draw manga (cartoon) together” this month. We will have a short lecture of the basic manga structure “Yonkoma” (four panel comic). We will provide tools to stimulate your ideas. If you are not good at drawing, no worries! This is not a drawing class. Only rule is “Just Enjoy!”

All levels from beginners to natives are welcome. Lectures and presentations are in English.
