O-Hanami?! Day trip ~

Mandy's number: go-ichi-zero-roku-ni-ni-ichi-hachi.

[masked]: About meeting somewhere first and getting to the Farm together --

I think a lot of people are taking the East/ West Rail and then transferring onto the 64K bus. So it makes sense to meet at the bus station and then go together. You can consider this option, and contact those who commented on it to better coordinate.

64K BUS ROUTE: http://www.i-busnet.com/busroute/kmb/kmbr64k.php

From EAST Rail "TAI WO" (64K bus station is at 太和廣場): it should take 20-25mins to get to our destination, so please show up on time at 10:30AM, at a meeting point (I don't know where, you guys figure this out please :P)

From WEST Rail "KAM SHEUNG ROAD" (64K bus station is at 錦上路站公共交通交匯處): I suggest you meet there no later than 10:40AM. Again, I don't know where. Because I will get on 64K from another bus stop in Yuen Long.

Thank you!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[masked]: There're apparently 3 Sakura trees in CUHK! You can go see them (they're in bloom right now) at the New Asia campus! (Thank you Saya-san for the info!).

I've decided on the place we'll visit - Kadoorie farm, and aim for a great variety of flowers; instead of the transient beauties which are elusive and also few and far in between here in HK. These are the flowers listed for February:

http://www.kfbg.org/wwwroot/images/upload/Exploring_KFBG_R/2013Feb_Flowers-list.pdf

This meetup will be casual and very jiyuu. I will not provide notes, and I will not even bring a list of participants. It is also my first time there, I don't plan to be a guide at all. So the purpose is just for a group of people to walk around together, explore a beautiful garden and to chat in English and Japanese.

DIRECTIONS:

By MTR East Rail / bus
Take the train to Tai Po Market or Tai Wo. Get on the 64K bus towards Yuen Long (west). Ride for 20-25 minutes. Near the top of the extremely steep hill, get off at the Kadoorie Farm bus stop.

By MTR West Rail / bus
Take the train to Kam Sheung Road. Then, get on the 64K bus towards Tai Po. Ride for 15 minutes. After the extremely steep hill, get off at the Kadoorie Farm bus stop.

By bus
Take the 64K bus which runs between Tai Po and Yuen Long (west). Get off at the Kadoorie Farm bus stop.

You'll pay for your own ticket ($20) at the Garden. I will wait at the entrance for 15minutes, those that come later then 11:15, you can enter and explore on your own.

p.s. bring your own lunch/ we can eat at the Vegetarian restaurant in the Botanical garden area.

p.p.s. Again, this event will be very touch-and-go :)

    こんにちは。香港に住んだ日本人にとて旧暦お正月は面白いと思ういます。二月9日ゆべに初詣でができるし、2月11日は花火があります。僕は数年花火へ見に行きません。皆さんは興味がありますか。興味があったら、TSTに晩ご飯を食べて花火へ見にいきましょうか?

    February 1, 2013

    If the flower show in Shatin involve Sakura, it will be very good. In Hong Kong there is no Sakura sea like those in Japan, you guys will get disappointed.
