In my previous post, my friend Bob described the conversation café scene in Tokyo. The conversation continues.
Do guests always just sit down at the conversation cafes and chat?
No, the cafes also hold “international parties” on the weekend once or twice a month. At a Norton Place party, a pianist provided a mini-concert at the cozy café that looks like someone’s family room.
Leaf Cup’s international party was a standing happy hour type event. Because people are eager to practice English, finding someone to talk to at the parties is easy. They want to hear about where you're from and what your experiences have been in Japan.
