From larger gatherings celebrating Japanese culture to small meet-ups where you can exchange your best Japan stories, RMJETAA strives to cover a variety of interests with our events. Not a JET Program Alum? No problem! Most of our events are open to other former ALTs/CIRs, JET friends and family, JET hopefuls, and anyone who enjoys Japanese food and culture!
Make sure to check back often for upcoming event details and join our Facebook Group for the latest updates!

Monthly Board Meeting
Our monthly board meetings are usually held the 2nd Sunday of the month at Coffee at the Point (free parking in attacked garage, entrance on Washington St.), please check back monthly for exact date, time, and possible location change.
Grab a brew and catch up with fellow alums at Coffee at the Point (free parking in attacked garage, entrance on Washington St.) on the 2nd Sunday of each month right after the monthly meeting. This is a very casual meet-up so friends, family, and fellow Japan enthusiasts are welcome to join! Please check back monthly for exact times and any possible location changes.
For those feeling natsukashii for karaoke sessions in Japan, we occasionally host karaoke night at a local private room-style karaoke place (no American style “sing in front of the whole bar”!). Please contact us to start planning a night out!
During the summer months, join fellow alums as we hike the trails and peaks of Colorado. Visit our Facebook group for more information.
We are always open to ideas for events and meet-ups, especially ones outside the Denver/Boulder area. We are also happy to help promote your Japan-related event! Feel free to post events or meet-up ideas on the Facebook group or contact one of our board members.
