The event organizer is a group called Home In Japan, with the aim of fostering a friendly multicultural community. The group’s founders all have international backgrounds: one was born and raised in Japan as the child of immigrant parents, another is an attorney actively involved in foreigners’ human rights, and the third is a Japanese language teacher at a university with experience growing up abroad. Their objective is to support newcomers in integrating into Japanese society. Since their organization is registered and subsidized by Setagaya Ward, Setagaya residents are most welcome at their events.
