We lived in Japan and Guam when our daughters were small and we didn't do playgroups either. I took my oldest with me to the Japanese/American ladies meetings once and week and she played with the Japanese children and the children of other Americans stationed in the area and had fun. In Guam we just had neighbors who had kids and we kind of just helped watch each others and socialized as needed.
