It was SO much fun (for me)
Yesterday was a huge day for RetireJapan. We had our first independently-organized event.
40 people came out to the very cool Impact Hub Tokyo in Meguro on a rainy Sunday afternoon for three hours of talking about personal finance and investing in Japan.
It was great to meet everyone and field questions: I even learned a few things. Best of all, I saw what a great community we are building here.
None of it would have happened without Paul, who not only proposed holding an event in Tokyo, he helped organize it, provided his fantastic event management site, and even ran around on the day providing tea, setting up chairs, and doing reception for the event.
So a huge thank you to Paul, a huge thank you to Impact Hub Tokyo, and a huge thank you to everyone that came out.
If you weren't able to attend this time, worry not. Based on how well things went this time, I think we'll be organizing more events, both in Tokyo and elsewhere.
If you think your city could do with a RetireJapan event and you are willing to act as the local organizer, please get in touch :)
