English-speaking user groups in Japan

My company is sending me to Japan sometime in the next couple of years 
to establish a branch office. Since we're big advocates of FreeBSD I'd 
like to know if anyone has any knowledge of user groups there that 
conduct business in English. I've found many groups, and while they do 
allow and encourage the participation of foreigners, they, rightfully 
so, do everything in Japanese. I don't really mind joining these groups 
as it would be good for our language skills (and our ability to make 
asses out of ourselves), but it seems that there are enough native 
English-speaking geeks there that a user group for foreigners should 
exist. If it doesn't, we'd be willing to host one. Anybody have any 
insight into this?

Thanks in advance.
