わ 輪 wa 和 は
tokyo wa is a directory for English-speaking Tokyo residents, and visitors. You can find information about different groups and spaces in Tokyo who are socialising, volunteering and experimenting with their local (or international) community.
Usually, the information for these places is available in Japanese. This site helps to make these places more accessible for English speakers.
Included are foreign-resident support and language learning groups, volunteer groups for disadvantaged communities, international activist spaces, growing and gardening projects, sharing and daily life experiments, and others.
These projects and spaces do not prioritise making a profit, but focus instead on local and international community interaction, social change and social issues. I have featured the most easily-accessible ones for people who cannot speak Japanese well.

You can also contact me, the owner of this site, with questions. I’ll be happy to write back.
