INFO:
Coming by bicycle is recommended if you live nearby as we’ll have to use/share bicycles to access restroom in addition to 2 trips back to the station by car for later sessions. If you come late, it will be about a 30-min walk to our location near the Tozai Line bridge (but accessible via the Kaisaibashi Bridge).Also call my cell phone 090-1847-5075 if there are any problems finding us.

RAIN:
In the event of light or medium rain this event will NOT be cancelled as we will move to and from the river by car and we’ll use rain gear. In the event of heavy rain/strong winds (e.g., typhoon conditions) then the event will be cancelled.

Let’s have fun enjoying our local nature while making it better at the same time.
