N-Friends Club

Would you like to talk with local people in Japanese?

We are welcoming new members.

You might be thinking, for example…
■ I would like to get acquainted with Japanese people in my neighborhood.
■ It would be nice to have a Japanese acquaintance who would read letters that my child brings home from school together with me.
■ I don’t know much about Japanese schools. I wish somebody could tell me more.
■ I moved to Nishitokyo City recently. I would like to know where the supermarkets and hospitals are.
■ What kind of parks are there where I can go with my family on days off?

Learn a lot and talk a lot together with your Japanese language partner!

This is a conversation partner activity with a Japanese person.
You can make friends through enjoyable conversation with a Japanese person in the area.
You can talk about various things, such as what you do not understand or what you want to know about life in Japan or what you want to tell about your own country.
If you can speak simple Japanese, you are welcome to participate.
