Several members of this forum seems to be living in Japan, specially in the Tokyo area. I thought it would be a good idea if we could arrange a dinner all together (well, 5 to 15 people maybe) or even meet one to one, in order to have create deeper relationships between us, which can only improve the atmosphere and friendliness on the board. ;)

I'd like to know who is interested at first, then we can arrange where and when to meet. If anyone is planning a trip to Japan in a near future, they are welcome too. 🙂

May I ask the people interested in which region of Japan they live.

As for myself, I live in Central-East Tokyo.

🙂

That's a very nice idea, Maciamo. Don't forget to take pics for members living outside Japan.

;)

PS: Perhaps we should arrange something similar for our European members.

Oh yeah! How about a nice long weekend in Paris? That's pretty central for the Western European members. 👏

I do plan to visit Italy this summer. I could stop over in Vienna. :)

Yeah well, we have enough members in the US as well. There could be JRef meetings in every continent, i think. ;)

Would be cool if they were all held on the same day though.

@thomas
Thanks for the offer. I'll let you know about our plans when the time comes.

Welp, Paris, the city of love and romance... that's all I can say without facing the most serious consequences.

I am new to this forum, but I like the idea of a meeting in Tokyo in order for us to have a nice chat over dinner or a cup of coffee. I've been to Tokyo, Yokohama and Nagoya several years ago and I'm planning to visit Japan in the near future. I hope we can meet in Tokyo.

So far, no one seems to be living in Tokyo apart from me. Most of the active members on the forum are from abroad and the few living in Japan don't show up so often.

Anyone interested, just send me a PM or email.

Well, meeting someone in a place like Paris is indeed romantic. I wonder how it's like to meet that special someone in Japan? Can it be as romantic as in Paris?
