Seems like 4/4 will be a good day meet if everyone wants to meet in one place at the same time. Bex, with you arriving on that day, I hope it will work out for you as well. We'll spend large amounts of time eating so would you guys be interested in a food tour?

Posted February 27th, 2013 - 2:13 pm by from Miami, United States (Permalink)

Dear Everyone,

Hi I'm Kat and I will be in Tokyo from the 30th of March until the 5th April.

How about a Hanami picnic on the 4th? Enjoy the cherry blossoms and have a picnic?

This would be good for me as I don't eat meat so couldn't join you guys at a restaurant!

Let me know by private message if you're interested and I'll set up an event.

Cheers!!

Posted March 12th, 2013 - 6:12 pm by from Brighton, England (Permalink)
Hey guys just an update, you can join the activity "Hanami Picnic" now if you fancy coming along!!

Cheers

Posted March 12th, 2013 - 6:45 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
How do we find it Kat? Unless its just me, this site is not user friendly when it comes to searching.

Posted March 13th, 2013 - 12:14 pm by from Brighton, England (Permalink)
Hi Terry no I couldn't even find it yesterday, bloody CS!!! anyway here is the link,

https://www.couchsurfing.org/activity/view/OX0YX5/hanami-picnic

I will also post a new thread in this group!!

Cheers ^^

Posted March 13th, 2013 - 4:57 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
Is anyone buying/bought the Japan Rail Pass? From reading on the site, this should meet my needs of getting to Kyoto and Hiroshima, just need to know how complicated it'll be getting there dealing with connections.

Posted March 13th, 2013 - 8:27 pm by from Ostroleka, Poland (Permalink)
Hi,
I have just bought a JRPass and now it is on the table waiting for the right time.
Here is the webpage

http://www.jrpass.com/?gclid=CKDihIHC-rUCFUaN3godZ0kApQ

or you can write an mail first

support@jrpass.com

It is not complicated . They send it within 2-3 days.
I will be in Japan on the 9th as well and I wonder how not to get lost in this jungle full of people.

Best wishes from POland
Helen

Posted March 13th, 2013 - 10:37 pm by from Billericay, England (Permalink)
Evening all!

Kat, a Hanami picnic on the 4th sounds great. I will be arriving at NRT early on the 4th, so after a very long flight a few hours chilling under cherry blossoms with you guys and an obento box will be bliss. Let me know which park you plan to go to I will try to make arrangements to join you.

And Terry - sorry for not keeping in touch, work has been demanding but I will reply to you very soon... :)


Posted March 14th, 2013 - 3:14 am by from Jakarta, Indonesia (Permalink)
Hi everyone!

Safe travels and we'll see you on the 4th

Posted March 14th, 2013 - 12:33 pm by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)

Posted March 14th, 2013 - 12:44 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
Raj,

For those who can't attend the picnic, I'm still hoping to meet for dinner that evening. I'm going to send personal message to everyone next week to reconfirm.

Posted March 14th, 2013 - 12:54 pm by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
Hi,
Is there anybody interested in the hanami picnic idea but working during weekdays too ? What about doing an other one on the 6th or 7th ?

Céline

Posted March 14th, 2013 - 1:01 pm by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
Weekend is better option fr me :-)

Posted March 14th, 2013 - 1:06 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
I'm up for anything and meeting people is one of my main goals.

We were discussing an event on the 4th because most people here were leaving on the 5th.

Posted March 14th, 2013 - 1:28 pm by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
4th eve i can join u guys ... If u guys hav some plan let me know :)

Posted March 14th, 2013 - 1:39 pm by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
Yeah I know, I read the threads. But I like the idea, that's why I was asking about doing an other picnic during the weekend. Anyway, we will see if anyone is in.

Posted March 17th, 2013 - 10:30 am by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
Hello everyone, I would like to join the picnic as well, if it is on the weekend.

Posted March 17th, 2013 - 11:55 am by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
So Apparently several people seem interested in doing one on the weekend. So let's do it on saturday 6th. I heard Ueno park is good to do hanami picnic. Did anybody else hear something about a good spot ?

Posted March 17th, 2013 - 12:30 pm by from Miami, United States (Permalink)
It seems cherry blossoms are starting to bloom early in Tokyo this year. According to the forecast, we'll be late for viewing at its best.

Posted March 17th, 2013 - 4:20 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
I've been reading that as well Paul, but hopefully it'll still be a beautiful atmosphere.

Posted March 19th, 2013 - 3:05 am by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
I wanna Join weekend Ohanami picnin!
But I think best Ohanami season is going to be next week.

Anyway some blossoms are going to come out.

Shinjuku has a big park.
I think it is easy to access for everyone. :)
But anywhere I can go!

Enjoy Ohanami!

Posted March 19th, 2013 - 3:24 am by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
Do you suggest we do it on the 30th or 31th ?
But some people won't be in Tokyo yet I think, like Terry.
But indeed flowers are alrealdy blooming since sunday in my city.
I think it can be nice even if it will be the end anyway.

Posted March 19th, 2013 - 5:36 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
Mother nature does what she wants ;-)

Hopefully we'll get some leftovers on the 4th.

Posted March 19th, 2013 - 6:10 pm by from Miami, United States (Permalink)
Hahaha, "some leftovers" I like that expression. Yeah let's hope there're still some pink trees around tokyo.

Posted March 21st, 2013 - 2:20 am by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
Wanted to check-in with everyone again on meeting. I'm about 2 weeks away from my arrival and hope we can still get a meet and greet going.

I'll send personal messages as well, but was anyone interested in meeting for dinner or an activity besides the picnic; night club, karaoke?

Posted March 21st, 2013 - 2:45 am by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
salsa on saturday (6th) night ? after the picnic.
It usually ends around midnight, so you still have the rest of the night to do something else (club/karaoke) if you want.

Posted March 21st, 2013 - 3:37 am by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
That sounds good Céline. Might not make it to the picnic, but just tell me where you're going to be and we'll meet there.

I'm practicing now so I don't look too bad ;-)

Posted March 21st, 2013 - 5:27 am by from New Delhi, India (Permalink)
Guys reaching tokyo on Tuesday! Hit me up if anyone is around! cant wait to get there!

https://www.couchsurfing.org/activity/view/OX0YX5/hanami-picnic

Waiting on the organizer to name a location. I'll let you know as soon as she replies to my messages from last week. I want to get a location named soon as I will base my day in that area.

Posted March 26th, 2013 - 1:04 am by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
Hello Tincho! There is at least one picnic for sure on saturday 6th. I don't know about the 4th. Probably still happening too.

Posted March 26th, 2013 - 1:32 am by from Santiago, Chile (Permalink)

any way Im arriving on monday so if there is any event before weekend, please let me know, ok ???


Posted March 27th, 2013 - 1:20 am by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
To anyone interested in the couchsurfers picnic occurring on the 4th, below is the link to the event page. Feel free to join as an attendee. At the bottom of the posts, you'll see a link to the park and a link to Google Maps with the meeting spot marked.

Hope to meet more of you guys there! If not, enjoy your travels.

Too bad I'll be arriving to narita airport that day on the afternoon. I'll be late by then if i decide to go to the picnic. if u guys plan to do something that night after the picnic, just let me know.

Posted March 27th, 2013 - 3:03 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
Paul,

There will be karaoke that night. I'll get a location pinpointed within the next day or two. I'll provide a Google maps link to think as well.

Posted March 28th, 2013 - 5:40 am by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
Is there anybody interested in going to a salsa club on saturday 6th ? We would probably go to el cafe latino in Roppongi (it opens at 9pm and closes at 5am so you can join whenever you want). You don't need to know how to dance, it can be fun anyway ;) And apparently there are classes before the party at 7.30pm.

Posted March 28th, 2013 - 1:14 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
Count me and a guest in.

Posted March 28th, 2013 - 3:17 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
If interested in karaoke on the evening of 4/4, the picnic forum page (https://www.couchsurfing.org/activity/view/OX0YX5/hanami-picnic) has been updated with information on location and price.

Need a good estimate on how many people will be involved to get an accurate price, but for now with a reservation unlimited drinks will be 2500 yen/person.

Posted April 1st, 2013 - 6:30 am by from Wako, Japan (Permalink)
So who's in finally for the picnic on the 6th except Natsu Shibata and me ?
Raj still in ?
The plan would be to meet up in Shinjuku around 12.30 and go buy some food and drinks to a supermarket and then head to Shinjuku goen.

Posted April 2nd, 2013 - 3:19 am by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
2 plane rides and I'm in Tokyo ;-)

See you guys in a couple days

Posted April 5th, 2013 - 2:03 am by from Tucson, United States (Permalink)
Hi everyone.

So is there a plan for this weekend? I just moved here and don`t know anyone yet, so I`d love to meet up! Please let me know.

Posted April 5th, 2013 - 8:46 pm by from Goose Creek, United States (Permalink)
Nicole,

There's going to be another picnic today hosted by Céline Mercier so check out her posts and send here a message. Also there should be salsa dancing tonight with Céline. I won't make the picnic but will be there for salsa.
