Hakone Gardens Photowalk and Scavenger Hunt


Meeting for coffee at Big Basin Cafe on 14471 Big Basin Way at 10 am. They have excellent coffee and breakfast. Join us there to get your scavenger hunt list, meet some of the gang and just relax before heading up to the gardens.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The gardens open at 11 am, and we may stop in downtown Saratoga for lunch afterward. Photographers of all levels are always welcome for these events. I have quite often just used my iPhone - the point it: get out and meet the group, have fun!

There is a very steep hill to drive up to the gardens, but plenty of parking.

  • Entrance fee is $7
  • Parking is free
  • My best guess is we will end at the gardens by 1 pm - lunch is optional.

    Big thanks to Sally for facilitating this event. Fascinating to compare how many different ways there are to "see" the same exact thing, and each has their own strength.

    Hi Sally, I live in Sunnyvale near Fairoaks & Central. Does it make sense for me to carpool with you? I think you are midway between my home and the Gardens.

    Parking is plentiful at the Gardens, but we'll be doing street parking at Big Basin Cafe. Just a heads up.

    We have photographers of all levels at our photowalks. If you're looking for a new camera, there will be folks there who can help you with that. Lots of friendly, helpful folks in our group.

    Pamela, where do you live? I'm off Moorpark near Saratoga avenue. If you're relatively near, you can ride with me.

    I'm really looking forward to this being my first event. Great idea to start organizing carpools this early. I would like to carpool in someone else's car. Will chip in for gas.

  • Sally C.

    Ok let's get the carpool discussion going. I have room for one or two in my car, and I live in the San Jose/Cupertino/Santa Clara area.

    July 11, 2012

  • Sally C.

    It's still early, but let's get carpooling started a little earlier this time, so no one gets left out.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
