Peter Rehse in Kanto area

I'll be in Yokohama 14-18 of April at a conference. Probably be free Thursday and Friday night. I was planing on returning Sunday but can be convinced otherwsie.

I know Yokohama is close to Tokyo - anyone care to meet up.

Hi Peter,

Too bad I'm not in Japan! I usually stay in Yokohama at my parent's condo (about a seven minute walk from Yokohama station) when I'm in the Tokyo area...

Hi Peter,

You might consider going to visit Terada Sensei. There are a lot of Yoshinkan schools in and around the Yokohama and Yokosuka area.

Dojo list is on my website if you're interested.

...Cheers...

Hi Peter,

Logistically, it may be difficult, but it would be great if you could stop by on the 18th on your way home. I live in Mishima city, Shizuoka, about an hour south of Tokyo on the shinkansen. There is practice starting at 1:00. I`m fairly certain that there would be no problem for you to come and train.

Peter,

Dog gone it, that sure figures. I have been reading your contributions to the threads for some time now. For the past 4 years I was just down the tracks from Yokohama about 20 minutes on the Akai Kanji Kekyu, in Yokosuka. I was just biding time to see when you would be in the area to see if you wanted to come play at our practice.

I had to go back to the States, but you can still check out the practice on Saturday evenings from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Kurihama City Gym, 2nd floor. Senseis name is Iida Takeshi. He is very welcoming and I think you would enjoy his style and the entertaining atmosphere in the class. If you do get down there, they will give you the schedule to all of the other classes.

Well, if you come out SanDiego way please feel free to drop a line in advance. I would like to meet you in person one of these days.

Regards

I'm staying in the Yokohama Sakuragicho Washington Hotel near Sakuragicho Stn in Yokohama. I'm free either Thursday or Friday night and will travel to meet - as long as I can get back.

No clue about train times and how far everything is from everything else. I'm leaving the choice of where and when Mike (Spike) Kimeda of Angry White Pyjama fame if he agrees.

Whatever is decided is fine with me but frankly I'ld rather drink beer and eat than train. Of course I'll take my dogi along but ... thanks for the training suggestions though.

Hi Charles;

Conference finishes at 3pm and after 4 days of overenthusiastic scientists I'll probably be thinking of home at that point.

Good idea though.

Plans are firmed up - we are meeting at Shibuya Thursday at 7pm at the Dog Statue (Hachiko).

We will start, maybe even stay, at the

Any of them would be fine for me, but you might be interested in the very newly opened Canadian Bar in Shibuya. It's called the Maple Leaf (how original) and has pretty good Canadian styled grub and drinks. They are playing a lot of hockey games now. They even have PEI mussels!

If you want to join but will be terribly late please PM Michael for his cell phone.

Re: Peter Rehse in Kanto area

Well I'm back and it seems only one Aikidoist crawled out of the wood work. It was of course Michael Kimeda of Angry White Pyjamas fame who I last trained with about 4 years before. Not all was lost although I must say the fact that he had more hair then when I last saw him when as per natures insidious plan I have less was not appreciated. I found my solace in beer and excellent conversation.

The week before Bryan Bateman managed to visit Himeji - didn't get a chance to train either unless you count a little bit of hey grab my wrist while we walked around Mount Sosha (in the foot steps of Tom Cruise don't ya know).

So all in all it was a good week of forum meets.

Re: Peter Rehse in Kanto area

Hi Peter,

I'm now safely back in the UK. It was a fun day out with some interesting conversation, despite the initial taxi ride from Himeji station! I've still got the pics on my camera, I'll try and post a couple here over the next few days.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

There were a lot of favourable comments about that day. Long but very good. Looking forward to the picis - not all Himeji taxi drivers are that dense.

Re: Peter Rehse in Kanto area

Boy do I feel isolated way up here in Hokkaido.

I cant make to the Budokan Event on the 22nd, because I have all ready asked for the 8th off to go to Sapporo for Isoyama sensei's seminar. If anyone needs a vacation into the country side, Hakodate is really nice. Saturday practice is from 6pm to 8pm.

For those going to the Zenkoku in Tokyo have fun.

Re: Peter Rehse in Kanto area

Peter,

Here`s the pics as promised. Had to shrink them to post, if you want larger copies, I can e-mail the originals but they are quite large.
