A German friend of mine living in Shinjuku-ku is looking for other German-speaking children to play with her two (aged 5 and 3), and help them keep up their German now they go to Japanese kindergarten. Preferably in central Tokyo or on the JR Chuo/Sobu line, or subway Marunouchi or Namboku lines. I will pass on any messages to her.

There is an organization called ICBA which manages its book reading clubs in Japan.
According to their website, therefs one French book reading club in Chiyoda-ku Fujimi, and one German book reading club in Shinagawa-ku. The one I know is an English book reading club for families from English speaking countries and Japanese families who came back from English speaking countries to help them keep their English. I think ICBAfs book reading clubs are not meant to be used by those who want to learn another language.
There are ICBAfs book reading clubs in UK, Germany, Italy, USA, China, and Australia, and I think those are for keeping your childrenfs Japanese language skills.
Please contact ICBA to get contact information on reading clubs in your area. The website is only in Japanese, but the most of the people in ICBA understand English.
