Hi Ninjoo and ExaCtMake, thanks so much for your responses! I’ve heard that there are several international parties that they hold every now and then in Tokyo. Is that true? Any idea where these are based, that may help me make my mind up even more.
However, I do want to mix and mingle with the local Japanese crowd too – from your own experiences, are the Japanese happy to casually chat over a drink with random foreigners? I don’t really want to offend anyone during my visit haha :)
