OPTIONAL SESSION (with organizer):
Be sure to make an appointment for pick up. If no one tells me they are coming, I will not return to the station for pick up at this time. Gather at NISHI KASAI Station (Tozai Line) outside the only ticket gate at 2:45p.m.., and then go to the Arakawa River by car and pick up trash along the banks for about 2.5 to 3 hours.
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.
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) or lightning then the event will be cancelled.
Let’s have fun enjoying our local nature while making it better at the same time.
