Sun 25th 6pm. Cherry Blossom - Budokan, Chidorigafuchi

Post by Andy OCJ »

Members preferred Sunday and cherry blossom should be in full bloom.

Now 4-5 people.

Anyone can join this event as it is a social event... non-members, member guests etc.
Reply to this event message so people know who is attending.

Walk through the Budokan park along the water moat, then back along the famous Chidorigafuchi street. Usually by then food is at 1/2 price sale before 9pm.
The Budokan walk is very nice as there is a quiet walking path under trees by the water/stone wall. Around Yasukuni shrine is also nice after the walk.Travel, Meeting Time, Place [旅行の詳細, 集合時間と場所]

6.00pm outside ministop convini (see google link- ミニストップ 九段南1丁目店):
Not crowded there so easy to find people and buy food/drinks.
Get your own food and drinks from convini before going in the park.

Route (see attached map)
Through the gate near Kudanshita station, turn right and follow path. The Budokan hall is on the left. Turn right first chance, then to a small path in wood leading to wall (near water) opposite Chidorigafuchi. You can walk under cherry blossom along the wall... quite dark but easy to walk. You can also climb down to grass in some places if you try.
At the end you leave the Budokan park and turn right. Follow path in park (view over highway and Chidorigafuchi). At the end cross road and turn back to Chidorigafuchi.
