I'm going to be doing a joint meetup with Leo Babauta and Nick Gray in Tokyo on April 6th. We'll be hanging out in Yoyogi park on the big deck thing overlooking the pond. Location here: http://goo.gl/maps/CiEQ0
If it's raining we'll meet at Wired Cafe here: http://goo.gl/maps/14MZg
Any more meetups? Maybe in a coffee shop near shibuya station or somewhere easily accessible?
I don't think the guys are in Tokyo anymore. I live her permanently so I'm here all the time though. If you want to meet up and talk about some stuff I'm down.
I think Tynan made a post that said he'll be working on his SETT program at his friends office in Shibuya. I figured that he might be interested in meeting with some of my friends that are on the corporate development team with various tech companies here in Tokyo.
God damn it! God damn it! God damn it! God damn it! God damn it! Been following your blog for years and the one day you offer a Tokyo meet up I had to work >______<
Have a great meetup. I was just in HK yesterday - had I known all the cool kids were in Tokyo, I would have re-directed. Alas, I'm back in SF today.
Hi. My name is Debashish. I was directed to this blog through Zenhabits. I have been following Leo's blog/books for a couple of months now and it has had a tremendous impact on my life. I'd love to come say hi and thank you. Is the invitation still open, even though I am not a reader of this blog? Would really love to meet up with Leo and you guys ("We are the average of 5 people we spend most time with"). Thanks.
If we can`t find you on that day will messaging you work?
Hope you enjoy your stay this time as well, Tokyo is like a party that never ends (till you learn japanese and see a different side but I digress)
If you get a chance, try to get to meet Cecilia Macaulay http://www.blogger.com/profile/12907576925986872346. From her profile:
"I entice myself, and whoever gets in range, to make those small adjustments, little re-arrangements that dramatically fix leaks. Leaks in our time and energy and good relationships. Then we are freed up to do the creative work we were made to do". Her schedule is irregular, so I dunno where she will be that week. She's probably less driven than you are -- plus she's female -- so I think she's working with women more than you are.
I land in Narita Airport, Japan, pull two thousand Yen out of the ATM, and get on the train for Tokyo. From memory I walk down familiar streets until I get to the New Zealand Embassy in northern Shibuya, where my friend Elliot lives. I haven't seen him in almost two years, and have only emailed a few times since then, but it's as if I never left. We joke around, walk to dinner, and make plans for the weekend.
The next day I pop my Japanese SIM card into my phone and call my friend Toby to let him know that I'm around. He tells me about a party he's throwing in Yoyogi park, so a couple other friends and I join him.
Nothing about these individual scenes is particularly noteworthy. That's the point. In various places around the world I have enough good friends that I can have a pretty normal life there while visiting.
