Our October Oshaberikai and get together will be at IORI+, on Wednesday, 8th October from 6:00pm.
If you can’t speak Japanese come along anyway, we all speak English too!
For those who haven’t been before here’s how it works: You only pay for what you eat/drink. JETAA Canberra provides the renkon chips and edamame.
If you have to leave early, just find your friendly JETAA officer and settle up with them. Don’t forget to tell them what you ordered so we can check your order off the bill. We usually have change so you can pay for drinks as you go, but small bills and coins are always welcome!
If you have any questions about the dinner, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Hope to see you there!
