    I hope your student has already taken the exam and there won't be an opportunity for her to copy my answer, but here goes.

    1) We are planning to go to a yakitori and the fee/charge/cost is 3000 Yen.
    2) I'll come to the konpa.
    3) By the way, why do you call such a party a konpa?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
