The Tokyo International Amateur Radio Association (TIARA) holds monthly meetings in English usually in Jiyugaoka, Tokyo. Jiyugaoka is just a few minutes from Shibuya on the Tokyu Toyoko Line, or from Oimachi on the Tokyu Oimachi Line. Meetings are held on the third Friday of most months except August (Field Day & Ham Fair) and December (Christmas Party). The meetings are open not only to members, but other English-speaking hams and foreigners residing in or visiting Japan interested in amateur radio.
