Yoshinkan Ryu Dojo?

I'm planning to travel Japan for a week and want to drop by some aikido dojos. One of my teachers recommend me Ando shihan of Yonshikan Ryu dojo in Chiba prefecture. If anybody here who ever been or currently training there, I'd like to ask some questions.

1. How to get there from Tokyo or Narita Airport?

2. How long does it take to go there by train or bus from Tokyo?

3. Visitors are allowed to watch or train?(I'm not a Yoshinkan student..)

4. Is there budget hotels or inns in Chiba prefecture?

Thanks in advance.

Look up Michael Steumpel on the members list and PM him, he may be able to give you some good advice.

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

Re: Yoshinkan Ryu Dojo?

Ando Sensei's dojo is near Disneyland, which if I remember correctly, is about 20 minutes or so from Narita.

Reference the link provided in the above posts and write to them. I believe the person monitoring the e-mail communications is one of the non-Japanese instructors. They should be able answer all your questions.
