We run from 6:30pm to 11pm on the first Tuesday of every month, except January, when we run on the second Tuesday. Our venue is the top floor of the Brewmaster pub, which is located right next to Leicester Square tube station.

It is on the southeast corner, diagonally opposite the Hippodrome. Tottenham Court Road station's Central Line platforms are closed, so it is usually best to travel to Leicester Square station itself, or take the short walk from Piccadilly Circus of Charing Cross stations.


The entry fee, which includes a buffet, is as follows:

Standard Admission£5.50

Japan Society Member Discount (Individual/Corporate)£1
Student/Concession Discount£1
Regular Attendee Discount£1

You will receive all discounts for which you qualify. The Regular Attendee Discount will apply if you attended at least 50% of meetings during the previous calendar year, or once you attend six meetings in the current year.

From January to March each year, for each new member you introduce to the group, both you and the member will get £1 off!

No reservation is necessary and we welcome new and old members alike. We look forward to seeing you on the first Tuesday of each month!

Our annual Christmas Bounenkai will begin with a lunch at EAT Tokyo, Old Compton Street, Soho, from 3pm. Then, we will move to karaoke at Karaoke Box Soho, Frith Street, from 6pm to 8.30pm, and later, we will go to the Royal George pub in Goslett Yard, off Charing Cross Road. Will things end there? Come along and find out.

You can register to attend at our November and December conversation evenings. If you are unable to attend these but wish to come to the Bounenkai, please contact us. We have booked the pub from 8pm so feel free to turn up a bit earlier if you are not going to the karaoke.
