Hey there,

I'm Mandy and am living in Kyoto for two years now and work - surprise, surprise! - as an English teacher. I'm really interested in learning about Japanese art and culture, but right now I'm searching for fellow expats to relate with. I'v met an incredible lot of people here, but apart from work no other expats yet and I'd like to hear about your experiences and ideas over a nice cup of coffee, or a beer ;) Haven't managed to learn Japanese so far, because of other priorities and am not looking for a language exchange partner, but someone with whom I can exchange myself with about living very far away from home.

Hi, I'm Alexandra and I'm from Romania but have been living in London for the last 7 years. I am on a business trip in Tokyo until February. If you are interested in meeting up for dinner, coffee or drinks and socialising, drop me a message!

My name is Eric and i work for a tax firm here in Japan and Vancouver specializing in cross border taxation between Canada and Japan.  I spend half my time in Vancouver and the other here in Tokyo. Coming from Vancouver, i love my nature! You'll more than likely never find me in Tokyo on weekends. Usually driving to the mountains for skiing or beach depending on the season. Ive probably skied at 30+ ski resorts in Japan as well visited over 100 onsens! so if you need any info on the outdoors and the mountain resorts, get in touch with me. If you need tax related advice on residency issues between Japan and Canada, feel free to contact me as well. Cheers.
