  • Meeting people in Roppongi

    I am Japanese.
    I live in near Roppngi.
    There is many foreigners.

    I cannot speak English well.
    I would like to communicate in English.

    I just don't have a chance to socialize with a native speaker.
    How to make foreign friends?

    Don't be shy?You've talk to foreigners?
    ...It's not that easy at first.

    I hope you will have some advice for me.

    Thank you,

    How about speaking Japanese to some of the foreigners there if you just want to meet non-Japanese?

    Some people are wary of pD_, but if you do talk to people, do try and keep the conversation interesting for them.

        Someone who uses native speakers solely for language practice.

              You could put a note on the bulletin board in the cafe;

              "Free Japanese lessons. I'll teach you Japanese if you teach me English."

                There may be some extra room at my place for you to come and stay for a weekend long "English workshop."

                  I think you should try going out with a few of your friends. Go to a bar or nightspot and try to be social. Beer is a social lubricant, by the way.

                  The reason I say go in a group is because I feel awkward when someone, regardless of race, is by themselves and they come up to me and start talking for no reason. I kind of get the impression that they are socially retarded and desperate to meet someone. It makes me uncomfortable. If I see someone with at least one friend I feel much more at ease and am more willing to talk with them.

                        Don't go to bars. You'll meet people who want to have sex with you only or people who will talk to you for 5 minutes then leave. I guess if you want to practise how to say your name and the weather or something...

                        I would like it a lot better if a Japanese assumed I had some Japanese and spoke to me in Japanese first. I hate being pegged as a tourist.

                          Yes. I don't like one-night standoff.
                          It is difficult to find friend.

                            I think you can also post on Metropolis.com or the website for Metropolis magazine...it may be connected to this site, but I'm not sure. Just say you are looking to meet foreign friends and not for free English lessons. Good luck!

                              Roppongi Standoff!

                              A classic malapropism, myuma!

                              I think you mean One Night Stand.

                              A standoff is when you cannot reach an agreement.

                              But in this case, it is appropriate.

                              I am not laughing at you, I'm just laughing.

                              Truer words were never spoken.

                              Some other ideas could be for you to go to a local International Centre, or perhaps even a church. Yes, they'll be religious, but the chances are they'll also be nice, which is more than can be said of a lot of he drunks in Roppongi, whether they are foreign or Japanese.

                              And you can learn about a religion without buying into it, after all.

                              Good Luck.
