Shinjuku Gyoen info (

The location:
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. 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 will bring a large tarp with me, but maybe a few people could bring some blankets or tarps, just in case we run out of space.

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.
