Every 2nd Saturday of the month from 2 to 4 pm, AIRY hosts Tobiiri (Jump-in) World Cafe.
The world cafe is a wonderful and FREE event where residents of Yamagata (both native and foreign) gather to chat to others interested in international exchange/different cultures. It is one of our most popular events- and no wonder!- It's an excellent opportunity to come and meet new people, make some friends and, most importantly, enjoy free refreshments (tea, coffee and snacks). It's a really friendly and laid-back atmosphere and the AIRY staff are always delighted to see new faces (and old ones!) so if you have some time free, why not pop in and say hello? We'd love for you to come along- no registration required!
We're especially nice to people who are interested in being a speaker at the event. If there's an aspect of your home culture/country that you are especially proud of, please get in touch with us and we'll see what we can do! If you thought free biscuits was enough reward, speakers have an even bigger prize still awaiting them... Don't worry if you're not confident in your English/Japanese- as we have a fully multilingual staff on hand to help you out.
