My name is Dan and I`m a long time resident of Japan and I`ve been a wargamer for a long time as well. I belong to two wargaming groups in the "central" region of Japan. One is based in Saijo (Higashi-Hiroshima) that plays almost all of the major wargames - currently, Monsterpocalypse is very hot! The other is based in Okayama and plays P.P. games almost exclusively. Both groups meet once a month and get anywhere from 3-9 players. Both groups are very friendly and open and happy to get new players. Nearly all of the players are Japanese (obviously), but I speak Japanese and can translate. If you are in the military, the Saijo group is just an hour or so away from Iwakuni. If you are a wargamer in Japan (especially southwest of Kobe on the main island) and you want to get some games in, feel friend to PM me.
