AAJA-Asia, Tokyo 2016 Annual Hanami Party


It’s almost time for the cherry trees all over Tokyo to burst with pinkness, and of course we celebrate that event by sitting underneath them with jokes, stories, and laughter.

Let’s all catch up and celebrate the thawing out of Greater Tokyo, and welcome Springtime in together!

We will meet up on Jingu Bridge over the JR tracks near the Omotesando Exit for JR Harajuku station and Exit 2 from Tokyo Metro’s Jingu-mae station.

Once in the park, keitai reception is not the best but I will try to put up map to give a rough idea of where we will be.

Also, the forecast is saying there may be afternoon rain. If it becomes too rainy, then we can make a rain date for the following Sunday.

Please RSVP on our Facebook event page to let us know you’ll join!
