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!


Saturday, 14th December 2019 2:00pm - 11:59pm

Our annual Christmas Bounenkai will begin with a lunch at EAT Tokyo, Old Compton Street, Soho, from 1:45pm. Then, we will move to karaoke at Karaoke Epoc, Brewer Street, from 4:45pm to 7pm, and later, we will go to the Royal George pub in Goslett Yard, off Charing Cross Road.

Spaces are limited so you must register to attend, either by email or at our December conversation evening.

The meal will be the price of whatever you order, and the karaoke will be about £12. You can bring your own drinks into the karaoke.

You do not need to register if you only wish to go to the pub.
