Hello,I'm MIO from Taiwan. I have learned Japanese for 3 years ,but I'm still poor at speaking it . I'm going to Japan for 2 months this summer . I might stay at Tokyo from 8/2 to 8/7. I will live in my Taiwanese friends' house so there is no need to provide us available space, I need someone to show us Tokyo. If there is someone who has free time during 8/2-8/7 and glad to hang out with us in Tokyo , I will appreciate it !
I really wanna make friends with Japanese or any kind person.
I'm easy going person. I like traveling , voluntary work .
If you're interested in making friends with us and glad to hang out with us , feel free to send me a message. Thanks a lot :^D

Hi Mio! I'm Alicia from Texas and I will be traveling to Tokyo Aug 6 - Aug12. I'd love to meet up with fellow travelers. I would be great to meet others visiting Tokyo. I'm easy going as well and looking to take in as many sites as possible:-)

Hi you guys! I live in Tokyo. When the date is set, let me know. I will join you. (*^^)v

Posted July 15th, 2012 - 8:03 pm by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

My first night there will be August 6th! It would be great to get together for dinner or drinks that evening. I'll be staying in the Asakusa area if Mio would like to get together for a last hooray before departing. Otherwise we could coordinate for another day during my stay.

Hi Alicia,

I will have time on August 6th at night, but I'm not sure what time does my work finish for now. So, when it comes close to that date, let's set the time and place.

Hi, Korinne and Alexander

Is it possible to come to join us on August 6th at night?


Posted July 20th, 2012 - 4:56 am by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
I am also not sure yet about my duties those days! I will let you know closer to the date!

Any ideas of central locations to meet on Monday, August 6, 2012 after 8:30p?

Posted July 16th, 2012 - 12:13 am by from San Jose, United States (Permalink)
I will have free time in Tokyo! I'm a tourist too though (my first visit to Japan) but if you are okay with getting lost together than I'd be glad to join you!

Posted July 16th, 2012 - 7:18 am by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
I have just been to Kaohsiung last week and loved it! Maybe we can hang out one day, I am going out quite often! Let me know :D

Posted July 25th, 2012 - 1:34 pm by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
Hello :)
I'm livining/working in Tokyo and I'm free on 2nd, 5,6,7th Aug for now. And let me know or update this post the detail of meeting!

Posted July 25th, 2012 - 9:12 pm by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

Hi there! That would be great to meet up. I will be narrowing down my list of sites to see this week. I am attempting to arrange them by neighborhood (as I think this would be more effective). I will be visiting the traditional sites but I'm also looking for some irreverent things to do as well. I will update this post and/or email you so we can figure out a time/ locationd to meet. It looks like Tuesday, August 7, 2012 would be a great day as well. There are a few more folks that I have met via CS that may meet up with us which should be really cool! As a local, any ideas for clubs, restaurants, or bars?



Posted July 25th, 2012 - 9:44 pm by from Houston, United States (Permalink)
Miko, Korinne, Andrew, Markus, & Hotimi,

Whoops! I'm getting used to the message threads so bear with me.

To all - the more the merrier!

Miko - as it is your last day on August 6th. I will be joining you & other for dinner. I should be in at the hotel by 7:30p - 8:30p & should be settled in by that time so I can meet anytime after that. Let us know where you'd like to meet. (Seasoned travelers - recommendations on meeting locations would be open I'm sure right? :-p)

Travelers & (available after August 7 - August 11):

I'll be doing some touring & walk-abouts through out the week. If anyone is doing anything particularly fun or irreverent i'm up for that! I have two planned excursions & the rest is just an tentative outline:

August 7 - the Fish Market (if jetlag is on my side & i'm awake that early), Asakusa
August 8 - Shibuya, Ueno,
August 9 - Night-time tour & dinner (planned)
August 10 -Day trip to Mt. Fuji (planned)
August 11 - Harajuki

--- I presently have 5 lists of activities & sites that people swear by & i am narrowing it down & organizing it by neighborhoods to make the most of my few days here.

All evenings are open! I want to soak this open & enjoy!

Posted July 29th, 2012 - 6:14 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
since i didn't make any plans until now every date would be possible for me (aug. 6th - aug. 11th). maybe evening activities would be nice

Posted August 1st, 2012 - 5:49 pm by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

Hopefully, Mio will send word of a location to meet at on the 6th very soon. Still finalizing the list giving myself a hard deadline of today. Leaving things fairly flexible in case I come across a tour offered / recommended by the hostel. Hear of any hip / quirky things to do?

Hi All!
I'd love to join you as well!
I will be free the evening of Aug 7th till Aug 11th (and also sometime before that but only the evenings I will be available)

This is my second time in Tokyo (first time was more than 15 years ago) so it will be like the first time!! Can't wait to explore!!

Posted August 2nd, 2012 - 5:43 am by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

Hi! We will definitely share the location and time so please do come & join us!



Posted July 31st, 2012 - 10:24 am by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
Hello :)
As for visiting Harajuku, check this article out! I hope it will be a help for you!
Just a note, TTL!

Posted August 2nd, 2012 - 5:45 am by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

Thanks for the share! I'm definitely planning to make this one of my adventures for Saturday. I'm reading it now. See you soon!

Hi !
I'd love to meet up with you and see the fish market on the 7th ;) At what time do you think you're going there?

Posted August 6th, 2012 - 12:06 pm by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

Now that I have arrived, I'm not feeling nearly as ambitious. I'm go to hang out in Asakusa tomorrow to get my feet wet. Will look at the Fish Market for possibly Wednesday or Thursday.

Posted August 7th, 2012 - 2:54 am by from Courbevoie, France (Permalink)
Hi alicia! I totally understand. Wednesday sounds perfect to me because I am leaving for Nara on Thursday. How about meeting at 7 am at Tsukiji station?

Posted August 8th, 2012 - 12:01 am by from Houston, United States (Permalink)
Caroline -

Sorry i missed you. I don't have regular access to the computer as i would like. i am dragging to get up and out early. Early morning adventures seem unlikely on my end. Hope you have gotten into some fun things and had some adventures.

Posted August 1st, 2012 - 5:46 pm by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

Hope your travels are well! Please send word about where you would like to meet on Monday, August 6, 2012 and time. I will be able to meet up after 8:30p or 9p. Hope you have a great visit & we will toast to your last evening in Tokyo & my first!


P.S., If anyone has ideas about a location that will be easy for everyone to find please give us some ideas. I'm not sure what neighborhhood Mio is in but I am in Asakusa. I'm sure something centrally located would be awesome for dinner, drinks etc.

Posted August 5th, 2012 - 5:11 am by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
Hi All,
I talked with Alicia.
On 7th let's meet in Shibuya. ( i hope Mika san can join it :D )

See you soon!

Hi everyone!

I m in Tokyo too, i would love to meet up with you all!

Posted August 5th, 2012 - 1:35 pm by from Houston, United States (Permalink)

Looks awesome! I'll have internet access till 3p eastern time. Then on the plane I go. Thanks for coordinating (I'll be off the grid until Monday evening :-) I'm going to try to get a prepaid sim card... We'll see how that goes...)

August 6 - will try to make it. Keep you posted.

Meeting location in Roppongi?

August 7- I'm there!

Is there a dress code? Or is casual okay

Can't wait to meet everyone!

Sorry we didnt get to meet up last night! Saturday night another CSr will host a viewing of the fireworks at Tokyo Bay. Check out the Activities tab and look at event for August 11. I believe the meeting time is 6p. There are also some other fun events that day so take a look.

Hi Alicia,

Unfortunately I will only stay till the 9th in Tokyo. On the 9th I can be hosted for a day with a couchsurfer in Mobara, close to Japanese beach. Also fun for a change! On the 10th I will fly back to The Netherlands.
