Rooters is one of Japan's largest social gathering organizers and since recently has begun focusing on creating events for foreigners and tourists to gather together and congregate over food and drinks. For now the trial events are located in Tokyo, Osaka and Kobe and will be expanding to additional cities in the future.

There are consistently from 50 to 100 people attending each Rooters' International Party. Currently Japanese women account for the majority of participants so Rooters is promoting the events to receive more international participants and more male participants. Not strictly a social gathering, many of the attendees are looking to find new friends or potential dates so it is important for them to achieve a near 50/50 mix at each gathering.

The events are fairly casual with not too much in the way of organization and planning. There is an initial speech by the organizer and the obligatory kanpai (cheers) to get things started. From then on there is a variety of foods served on a regular basis from courses to desserts and an open bar with all-you-can-drink beverages both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

November has a few more events coming up so if you are interested feel free to register and attend. Prices are incredibly cheap at only JPY 2,000 per event considering the food and drinks are unlimited.
