Tokyo: Shibuya-ku, Harajuku Area

Japan With Kids - Forums: Playgroups and Pals: Tokyo: Shibuya-ku, Harajuku Area
By Heather Williams on Wednesday, September 25, 2002 - 11:42 am:

I have two daughters aged 8 and 5. We are a British family but the children were born and raised
in Shibuya. They go to Japanese
schools but speak English at home. They miss their cousins in
England and want some English
speaking children to play with.

I live in Yoyogi Uehara and have a three year old daughter who is desperate for English speaking playmates her own age. We would like to meet children in the Yoyogi/Harajuku/Tomigaya areas, (or anywhere within Shibuya) for after school walks in the park, or at my place.
Please email me at

Hello! We have recently arrived in Japan and have a two and a half year old daughter. I am Australian and my husband is Japanese. I would love to meet other Mum's in the area (foreign or Japanese with children any age) for walks in Yoyogi park, Children's Hall and Children's Catle, Shinjuku Gyoen, or just have a cup of tea. Please email me at

Hi all,

We just moved to Tokyo and are looking to either join or start a playgroup in the Yoygi park area. We have two boys (2.5 and almost 6) who would love to make new friends here.
Please drop us an email or respond to this message. Jason, Rachel, Ryan and Asher Freedman.

I am a Japanese, live in Shibuya, near yoyogi uehara.
I am looking for friends who want to learn Japanese with their child.
My daughter 20 months and I would like to learn English.
It would be wonderful to teach language each other, and play together at the park together.
We usually play at oyama park, sometimes Yoyogi park.

Hi everyone,

I live in Yoyogi-uehara and have an 8 month old son. I'd like to take him to a playgroup close by where we can meet other mothers and children. All the places I know of only accept children after 18 months. I'd really appreciate any suggestions.
Many thanks.

I am looking to put together or join a playgroup for 2-10 month olds. I live within a 5min walk of Sangubashi station, Odakyu line, 6mins train from Shinjuku Station.

I have a 10 month old and would love to join your group. I live in Honmachi.

We just arrived from Sydney and I live in Hatsudai (Keio Shinsen line) with two sons, one is 5 and the other is 8 months. My husband is French (I am Japanese, speak French and English) and I am looking for French speaking Moms and playmates for my children. I could not find any French speaking playgroups in the area so far. My elder son used to speak in French with his best friend in Sydney but now he goes to English speaking pre-school near Yoyogi-Kouen and as he doesn't have any French speaking friends, his French speaking ability is dropping quickly.
Also English speaking or Japanese speaking families are always welcome!!!
If you live in nearby area, please email me at
