Best meetups in Tokyo?

I arrived in Tokyo a month ago, and will be here for at least a year to study Japanese. Most people in my class are Chinese and don’t speak English, so it is a bit hard to make friends in the classroom, so I am looking for other ways. Are there any meetup groups for (young) foreigners who are not expats? I saw Internations but they seem quite exclusive, maybe they are more for expats. Is there any group like that that holds regular meetings?

Have you tried They have lots of events in Tokyo for people to meet up, including age-restricted ones (people in their 20s only, etc.) I’ve met some cool people at those. It’s free to join

Why do you strictly not want expats, btw?

Check out “startup life Tokyo” on meetup. Some of the smartest members of a meetup group.
