Social Events

Begun in 2018 by our current Social Events Chair, Michele Joel, our social events are scheduled semi-regularly at locations in Tokyo and are fun, social events with a guided themed discussion as well. They are great opportunities to network with other JALT members (though non-members are welcomed also) and also a fun chance to talk about teaching-related issues with other professionals. For more information, please feel free to reach out to Michele at

In the case of  a large group, the venue may need to be changed to another Kichijoji restaurant, so you will need  to include your contact information when you respond.
