The Tokyo ET Contact Group organizes monthly CE-5 contact events (Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind) throughout the Kanto area, utilizing CSETI (Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence) principles and protocols. We seek to establish and advance peaceful bilateral communication with interstellar visitors, while expanding knowledge and research into the ET subject.

What We Are 

We are among a growing worldwide network of research teams and volunteer citizen diplomats, seeking peaceful and benevolent contact with non-human intelligent life. We recognize that extraterrestrial entities -- with non-hostile intentions -- have been visiting our planet for millennia and, as such, we believe it is necessary to actively engage these interstellar-travelers in an effort to establish and develop a mutually respectful, beneficial and cooperative relationship. We also support full government public disclosure surrounding the extraterrestrial reality, which would bring about a positive scientific, environmental, and humanitarian revolution.

What We Are Not

Although there is a spiritual aspect to contact work, we do not promote or endorse any specific religious ideology, agenda, or institution. We are not a UFO cult or religion. We do not worship or seek to worship non-human intelligent beings. Moreover, we are not commercial opportunists seeking to acquire special knowledge or advanced technology from ETs for personal gain. Finally, we are not merely thrill-seekers. Although the observations and experiences we have may indeed be thrilling, we do not organize contact events purely for entertainment's sake.

ET Contact Events

Contact events are usually held every month on the weekend nearest to the new moon (when the night sky is the darkest). This is done in coordination with a community of individual contact workers and teams in over 100 countries. Our events usually take place outside Tokyo in a neighboring prefecture (e.g. Yamanashi, Saitama, Chiba). Fieldwork is done close to nature, away from urban noise and lights, and with a clear view of the sky. Using a combination of light (portable lasers), sound (recorded ET tones) and thought (meditation/visualization), we attempt to guide ET craft into our area and engage in peaceful interaction. Contact events usually begin with an orientation/training session (conducted in English or Japanese), followed by contact work in the field.

During the event, new participants will learn:

- How to make peaceful, human-initiated contact with ET civilizations
- Basic meditation techniques and the role of consciousness in making contact
- The core principles and values of the CE-5 Initiative (Close Encounters of the 5th Kind)
- Basic training in the equipment used for contact and conducting research

Our contact events are FREE. However, anonymous voluntary donations of any amount are appreciated and will be applied toward field work equipment. Also, participants will need to be responsible for any relevant accommodation or transportation expenses. In addition, some preliminary reading may be assigned for orientation purposes. Some members may also be given a special role within the team (e.g. photographer, sound recorder).

We also ask that any ET contact-related knowledge or training received (if used or shared by participants in the future) be applied in accordance with the core principles and objectives of CSETI and the CE-5 Initiative.

Contact events may also be canceled or postponed due to rainy or cloudy weather. A decision to cancel will be made at least three days prior to each event.

Who Should Join

We welcome both Japanese and non-Japanese participants who share a belief in ET phenomena and wish to see our world finally enter the galactic community. Members should also be free of the negative cultural prejudices and preconceptions commonly associated with ET life forms. Moreover, a skeptical or fearful mindset generally serves to obstruct the contact process. Participants are asked to approach fieldwork activities with a cooperative spirit and an open heart and mind. The proper attitude and motivation is essential for successful fieldwork.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We welcome your interest and participation in the global ET contact movement!

The Tokyo ET Contact Group (ce5Tokyo) is a non-profit independent and self-governing agency. We do not share an official affiliation or partnership with CSETI (Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence), JCETI (Japan Center for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) or other UFO-related organizations.
