The day was still early I recall that beef tasted yummy. I'm sure I have photos...somewhere.

Yeah, I was very sad to cancel my flights to OKA last month. A whole year without a visit

A black egg from Ōwakudani, Hakone. We couldn’t see a thing but eggs tasted ok.

The Do will follow the usual pattern of Pre-Drinks / Day Trip / Main Dinner / Lazy Sunday, with a post-do yet to be proposed (but I'm sure the interpred ones amongs us will make recommendations ranging from Onsens to DMZ!)


DMZ ???????????????????????????????????

In 2017 the post-Do was in Korea when a group of us went on a day trip to the DMZ.

How is this looking? Any idea or plans to hold a similar Do in 2022 if possible?
(I might be in Japan in late February 2022 if all goes well!)

Never too late to start planning for April 2022. While it is 13 months out as of this posting, we can start looking at locations. Any suggestions? May I suggest Miyazaki?

I believe we will pick up where we left off planning to be in Nagoya as soon as we can schedule the Do. Hopefully this time next year.

Japan Do usually takes place at Easter. In 2022 Easter Sunday will be on 17 April, so the Do is likely to be on 14-17 April.

Me too. Can’t wait to meet again next year. Availability of flights and hotels could be challenging though as everyone is eager to travel again, plus the popularity of Japan driven by the Olympics, so early planning might be wise.

I hear Asian countries might be the last to open to the foreign visitors, so hopefully by Easter 2022, all will be back to “normal”

Yes, we had some visitors following us from Japan... Made some members hotel experiences memorable in Korea.

Well, I'll always advocate for a week later. Know I'll probably be shot down, but that would aid with my availability, and I don't need to pull what I did last time (or worse).
