Speed Dating at APAM offers 15 minute one-on-one encounters with presenters and promoters to discuss possibilities for future collaboration or presentation.
Dating places are limited and are only available to registered delegates.
However, because so few foreigners live in Japan, their best chance of meeting one in their normal lives is if they get lucky enough to have a native English (or other language) speaking teacher in junior high or high school.
You can usually find the events by doing a Google search for Tokyo international parties, with events like this popping up regularly, but it probably won’t be long before you get invited to one via Facebook.
As a guy looking to meet Japanese girls who are looking to meet foreign guys though, your best bets are what are called “International Parties” and “Language Exchanges”.
“International Parties” are parties organized specifically to bring foreigners and Japanese folk together and give everyone the opportunity to meet and interact in a safer environment than clubs or bars provide, and are much more relaxed events that are usually held on Friday or Saturday evenings, with some events earlier in the afternoon.
Each date runs for 15 minutes with a maximum of four pre-registered dates per delegate.
If additional meeting times become available, delegates may sign-up on the day of the event at Sofitel Brisbane Central.
