Talking Study group in Tokyo, Japan

Merry Christmas and Happy new year. I've passed P/1 in November and studying for FM/2 in February.

Anyone else in Tokyo doing the same? Let's get a study group together!

I'm planning to if I can find a job. I'm a career changer, so I'm not sure about the university route, although I saw AIG at a careers fair. If I have no luck, I'll be heading back to the UK.

How is living in Tokyo? Where are you all from?

I visited in 2016, went all over Tokyo, such a blast. Stayed in Shinjuku/Kabuchi-cho.
