We thought we would take the group out to dinner in Ikebukuro to catch up with how the internships are going. Some of our friends who are studying English joined in. Meeting people like this in Japan is a great way to practice your Japanese and make some new friends.
All you can eat (食べ放題) and all you can drink (飲み放題) is a popular choice at places like this. It helps to relax and enjoy your time when you are not worrying about the small stuff at dinner.
