A bilingual(J&E)Japanese mother of 20 months old boy, looking for a playgroup or playmates in the area of Yokohama and Kamakura. (We live in Konandai)
Please let me know if you know any playgroups or interested in making a brand new one! I used to live in NY and LA for 10 years. Not just for my son but I'd also like to become friends with an English speaking Mom!!
Please contact me at

We are looking for members of Higashi-totsuka playgroup.
There are only few members now.
All memberes live in Higashi-totsuka, but we don't care about where you live.
Let's go to park and public playroom somewhere in Yokohama or Kamakura.
We usually meet on 2nd and 4th Wednesday.
If you want to join or know more information, please feel free to contact us by e-mail.
