Hello chofu-mums!

I am a Japanese mum of 4yo girl, and I live near chofu station.

Looking for my daughter's playmate as well as mine! My daughter speaks fluent English and so-so Japanese.

Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Hello all:

I am working here in Tokyo for about 4 months. My wife and 10 year old daughter will be visiting for 3 weeks. We are looking for:

(1) things for my daughter to do while/kids to meet and play with while they are here and

(2) a pen pal who is about the same age (9 to 11 as of Summer 2007) speaks english and some Japanese.

If anyone is interested in either, please contact me at

Hi Keith

There are children's halls (Jidoukaian) in different wards which I think is free of charge or with minimal charge. Your daughter can play handcrafts/paint there. There is also a Children's Castle (Kodomo no Kuni) in Shibuya which charges about 500 yen (?) per kid and also some charges for the parents.

There other option is enrol a summer camp for her. The international schools offer different summer programs for different ages, but they are a bit costly, usually around 50,000 yen per week.

Then there is a art/craft centre called RBR in motoazabu. There's different programs of art/drawings/music/dance, etc.

Hope the above helps.
