Making Japanese friends

I moved to Japan 3 weeks ago and wondering how I can make Japanese friends, mostly online as I’m quite shy and spend a lot of my spare time on the internet. Anyone know any online sites where local people might hang out?

Meeting people in person is fine, too. I don’t speak Japanese very well yet unfortunately but can read it quite well which is why it’d be more comfortable for me to speak to them online first. Any help would be appreciated, thanks :)

You could try, but as the name suggests, you’d have to meet them in person. If you’re looking for gaming buddies, Meetup actually has game meetups too.
Other than that, standard Japanese chat sites would do ya. Best of luck Oliver :)
