We are a volunteer group called 「edobata」, which provides a place where Japanese residents and foreigners living in Edogawa-ku and in the vicinity can get together and talk 「IN JAPANESE」 in a homelike, friendly atmosphere.

If you are a beginner to the Japanese language, you are more than welcome to come and learn the language from ABC or あいうえお. And if you have already learned the language but are not confident in speaking yet, we will also help you improve your skills.

Some of our volunteers can speak English or Chinese. If you can speak without much difficulty, let’s have fun talking.
