This group is for you if:• You are looking for a date.• You live in the Tokyo area.• You’d like to meet local and international women or men. If you would like to meet ‘normal’ Japanese women and men, this is the perfect opportunity. We have our own ways to reach out Japanese people to make sure there’s a good mix of Japanese and non-Japanese people at our events.

After collecting my name tag, scoring sheet and drink coupon, I sat at my table, lit by a single pink candle. If about half of the men were foreigners, most women were Japanese.
