This year the baton for hosting the Kansai JALT end-of-year event has been passed on to Kyoto Chapter and it is to be held in the informal surroundings of Tadg’s bar in downtown Kyoto. With a wide selection of food and drink available, as well as wonderful views of Gion and the eastern mountains, we’re looking forward to a great chance to watch an eclectic mix of informative and entertaining presentations, and meet up with old colleagues and new people from around the Kansai JALT community. Kyoto JALT is looking forward to welcoming you on December 15th!
