All the best,
Rie a.k.a. Gadgetskier

PS, Staying over night on Sat is optional. You can make a day trip.


Dear IAC members,

I've greatly appreciated everybody's generous support for the previous events. Thank you very much. I was quite encouraged to plan another charity event. I am going to Echigo-Yuzawa to pick TAKENOKO (Baby bamboo) & SANSAI (Wild Veggies). I got 6 people. Please come to join us! I am willing to make it as a charity event.

Previous stay on Fri: I will check for the lodging cost, if anybody is interested in. (I will probably take Shinkansen from Tokyo to Echigo-Yuzawa after work on Fri.)

Donations are collected at the event. The accommodation fee is discounted 2000yen from winter season proper fee (1000 yen from regular customer fee). I expect you to donate some out of it. Thanks!

I will wire the money to Red Cross and will report the transaction info for the donation either via IAC mailing list or to each attendee via e-mails (TBD). I might wait for the transaction till I get enough donations at following events.
