If anyone wants to attend this seminar, and only has lodging (or lodging costs) as the sole holdup; please email me using my name-link on this post.. I can help with locating a hotel or home stays (we've just asked for volunteers)..

I had a pleasure to visit and practice in Shimamoto sensei dojo in Osaka few years ago. It was high quality practice and very sophisticated aikido. Sensei has charismatic personality, we learned a lot from him.

Re: Shimamoto Shihan @ Toronto Jun 5 - 6, 2010

I've been in contact with a few out of towners coming in for this seminar.. I'll repeat some of the hotel info I've shared.. The going rate seems to be $80-$90/night..

NEAR DOJO (you'll need a car to get to food from this hotel- or be patient with transit bus)
$99 / night if prepaid, $109 on the spot (you can almost walk to the dojo from here)

Delta DOWNTOWN (you'll need a car/transit to reach dojo)- a few dojo guests staying here

a deal we found for Delta @ $89/night http://ca.deals.travelzoo.com/ontari...um=email_top20

The hotel is downtown, and 3 blocks from the main commercial area, though the blocks around this hotel are shops/restaurants galore.. You may pay a small mint for parking though.. There are several garages/lots for parking nearby..

BUDGET geared hotels

hotwire.com seems to have good prices, but you're booking anonymous hotels, with only vague notions of where they are..

It is best to book the downtown hotels or the North East Hotels.. You will find a link to the dojo's location in the original post.. Nearest major attraction to the dojo is the Ontario Science Center..

Any Qs on geography of Toronto, let me know..

For those unfamiliar with Shimamoto sensei, he is a direct student of THE FIRST Osawa sensei, and like his teacher, uses very biiiig movements..

An article on Shimamoto sensei..

Re: Shimamoto Shihan @ Toronto Jun 5 - 6, 2010

Another person has been added to the party accompanying Shimamotor sensei to Toronto.. Coming with him will be: Yano sensei, plus an uchideshi from Germany, and another gentleman from Japan (who I don't know if he's a deshi or sensei).. We're still a month away, and more people from Osaka could be coming !! Hopefully we'll see y'all here in Toronto too..

Oops that link to the article got misformated, here it is again..
