Return to station.

Gather at FUNABORI Station (Shinjuku Line) outside the only ticket gate at 13:00, and then go to the Arakawa River and pick up trash along the banks for about about 3 hours.

If you are not able to make the scheduled time, check for the location and you could do cleaning at your own schedule with the bags left for us to pick up. Just use clear bags and be sure to sort by burnable, glass, cans, pet bottles, nonburnable and batteries, etc. in small open containers.

Some participants may go for dinner at a nearby restaurant or weather permitting we could picnic riverside with some bentos bought at a nearby convenience store. The schedule will be flexible up to a vote of any members who do not go home directly.

If you come late, it will be about a 25-min walk to our location the river which may vary month by month. 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. Please bring rain gear and we will take shelter (under a bridge) until any downpours let up. In the event of heavy rain/strong winds (e.g., typhoon conditions) or lightning then the event will be cancelled (and usually moved to a different day).

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