Jay and I will come so far.
A casual social event (not managed by Admin) - just look for members at the tables outside the door. If not sure, just ask if people are from OCJ.  Anyone can join this event! Do not ask "Can I join?", you will not get a reply!
It is for members, and visitors who want to meet members before joining. Reply here so we know how many to expect.

If you do not drink it is still ok to join.  The bar is very casual and staff don't go around asking people. We spend a lot as a group anyway.
The tables we have are not inside the bar so no smoke there..

How to get to the Akihabara Hub pub
Ground floor of an office building about 100m from JR Akihabara station. Central exit nearest Yodobashi Camera and Tsukuba Express line train (not Electric Town exit).

The easy way is come out of the central exit near the Tsukuba express and turn left, then go round to the train tracks (Yamanote line above).
Follow the tracks 2 minutes (Ueno direction - north) and you arrive at the building ( Fuji Soft BLDG) with the Hub pub inside.
On the way you will pass MacDonalds on the right side and you will see Yodabashi camera on the right across the road.
Look for a group of people of mixed nationalities just outside the door - we will have tables outside pub but in the building so dry.

Dear OCJ Members,

Now 2 people.

Title & Date]: Friday 5th - Saturday 6th May, Mt. Ryokami

A Scared Mountain with Prodigious Views

Mt. Ryokami is a sacred mountain situated on the northern border of the Chichibu Tama Kai National Park and is another of the Nihon Hyaku-meizan. In the past women were forbidden from climbing until the first recorded ascent in 1914. The summit is embellished with a small Shrine and has terrific 360-degree views.

Let's keep on breaking the taboo! Girls can get wild, too   ;)

Oh yes I'd missed that picture, thanks.
Not 100% sure we'll come yet, but if we do I'll call you!
Hi Marc.
I attached a map of the island to this event post. The campsite is clearly labeled.
Call or text me before you arrive, I might be able to meet you at the pier.
I am a new member on the Forum.
I was planning to go camping on the islands with my girlfriend but not Tuesday, maybe later like Thursday. Maybe we could meet later?
Originally was planning to go to Shikinejima, but Niijima seems nice too!
Where is the campground on Niijima?

I would like to join. :)
