Hello everyone! It's Hanami time again. Please join us at Shinjuku Gyoen for a vegan potluck party under the sakura trees.

What: A vegan potluck 
When: Sunday, April 7, 2013 - 11:00am(start) to 4:00pm(park close)
Where: Shinjuku Gyoen, the lawn area near the Sendagaya Entrance
Shinjuku Gyoen info

The location:

(This year I will make a sign or flag or something to make it easier)
I will arrive early and stake out our usual spot. Please enter the park from the Sendagaya entrance. Walk forward a bit, the path will split three ways. Take the middle path(slightly towards the right). Walk for about 75 meters and look for us on the left hand side of the path under the trees. See map: 

What to bring:

  • 200 Yen for the park entrance fee.
  • Food or Drinks - As this will be a potluck, please help us, by bringing some food or drinks. It can be anything, salad, snack, drink, main dish, dessert,etc, but it must be vegan. Please don't just buy some bread or crackers if you don't know if it't vegan or not. If you have any questions about this, please let me know. Thanks for your cooperation.
  • Dishes - Let's try to be Eco friendly and have everyone bring there own plate, glass and silverware. I'll bring some paper plates just in case, but it would be great if we don't have to use them.
  • Blankets, tarps - I am bringing a fairly large tarp with me, but it will only seat around 20 people so if some people can bring extra tarps that would be great.


If you have any questions or concerns please let me know. If you have to show up late, that's fine but you may miss out on some good dishes. The park will close a 4pm. If you can't find us feel free to call or email me:


Hope to see you there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
