Few weeks ago, when I joined the Ainbaragi Cafe (Naver Ah In Cafe – AinSunFlower), I received a message from the manager of the Cafe~ According to her, they don’t know too much about international fans~ And they would like the help and support of YAI from international fans too~ This Cafe was established last December~ It is also, as far as I know, the only one that do not need the alien registration number to register~
Just to give everyone an overview of the Cafe, it has a special page for international fans~ It also holds supporting events for YAI~ Some of you might recall the effort they put in last month when Ah In’s new movie started filming~ All the food and the presents they prepared are amazing~
Even though the Cafe are opening their arms to international fans, in order to register with Ainbaragi, you will need to register with Naver. And of course, most of us do not understand Korean. Therefore, registering with a Korean website is quite challenging.
[*I just learned that the Cafe is lowering the age requirement from at least 30 years old to 20 years old only for international fans for now! So, if some of you tried to register with the Cafe but did not success due to the age, you should try it again~^^~]

Hope this is helpful for those who would like to go to Ainbaragi and has not yet been able to because the language barrier~ Please let me know if you do run into any problems or questions~ I might not have the answer but I struggled and was able to register~ I can certainly tell you my experience~ Or, you may also e-mail directly to the manager of Ainbaragi in English at firstname.lastname@example.org~
