Hi, we're looking for a weekend playgroup for our one-year old daughter in Tokyo's Edogawa-ku or the surrounding region.

Is anyone interested in starting one, or has someone already started one but not advertised it on these discussion pages?

Call Steve at (03)3652-0732 or e-mail .

Japanese family living in Chiba-shi seeking English speaking families and friends who also live in Chiba. I have a 2 year old son in preschool. I have spent many years living abroad. Let us be friends and exchange information about living in Chiba. If you are new living in Chiba I can perhaps be of help too.

I've started an English speaking playgroup for pre-schoolers in Misaki-machi, Chiba-ken. We meet every Thursday morning from 10am to noon, currently in my home. Its informal and unstructured but we sing songs and play games. The current age group is under 2 years old. We are about an hour from Chiba city but only about 1/2 hour from anyone living in the Oami, Mobara, Shirokumachi, Chosei Mura, Ichinomiya, Mutsuzawa, Misaki, Ohara and Kamogawa areas.
Anyone interested in joining please email me for more details. anne[at]

Any plans to meet on weekends? I'm still looking to get my four-year-old daughter involved with a playgroup, but I work during the week.

I'm looking for English-speaking playmates for my children, a 2-year-old boy(born in June 2003) and a 6-year-old girl (born in February 2000).
I'm now living in the San Francisco Bay Area and will be returning to Japan at the end of June.
Our new home will be in the Matsudo area in Chiba.
Both of my kids are growing into bilingual kids.
Please contact me by email if you are interested.
