Bonjour Tokyo: Frenchies make parties in Tokyo 1140 585 Michaël da Silva Paternoster

The French-Japanese community “Bonjour Tokyo” organizes themed evenings throughout the year. This is one of the best ways to meet foreigners living in Tokyo and Japanese Western lovers.

You just landed in the Japanese capital city to live there or just for sightseeing and you want to meet beautiful people and enjoy Tokyo nightlife? Then you should care more about the events of “Bonjour Tokyo”.


Have a drink with the French community in Tokyo.

Everyone is welcome at these parties! No need to have a French or Japanese passport, a permanent resident visa or whatever, all you need is to come with a smile and the wish to meet people in a festive and international atmosphere.

Meet Japanese and foreigners living in Tokyo

It’s not always easy to meet new people in Tokyo, especially when you do not speak at least a little Japanese. Indeed, few Tokyo inhabitants are able to talk in English. Therefore, Bonjour Tokyo events are good opportunities to meet Japanese English speakers who come here by passion for Western cultures or just for fun.

In addition to Christmas or Halloween parties, Bonjour Tokyo held quite regularly dating evenings. So, if you are single, come to those parties and try to find your Japanese soul mate.

Bonjour Tokyo also organizes evenings inspired by France and its culture

Since you live in Japan, you are forgeting more and more the taste of good wine, cheese, bread or cold cuts? You start to become nostalgic for your Western life? Bonjour Tokyo puts an end to your suffering by offering gastronomic evening with French products.

You can also participate to French folk parties. For example, in January, you can become the king of Tokyo by finding the bean in the “Kings cake”. In November, you can taste the “Beaujolais Nouveau” and discuss about the fact that it has a banana flavor or not in pleasant company.

The rest of the year you can take a drink with the French community in Tokyo as if you were in Paris or Marseille.

How to participate in Bonjour Tokyo events?

The best way to know when a Bonjour Tokyo evening takes place is to follow the community on its Facebook page, on its website or on Meetup.

I hope we will have the opportunity to meet each other and have a drink at a subsequent evening in Tokyo with your future French and Japanese friends.

I’m a French guy living in Tokyo, where I work as a digital marketing manager and consultant for several years now. I’ve decided to share my travel recommendations and various tips to help people settle in Japan.
