Class Trip to Nitobe Gardens

The contact person from the Nitobe Memorial Gardens Volunteer Society called me today to confirm Tuesday March 21st as the day for our guided tour of the Japanese gardens. The sakura will hopefully co-operate to provide a most memorable Japanese experience!

Please return here in coming days for information on the specific time and travel arrangements.
Update: We are confirmed for twelve-thirty at the Gardens, directions and map here. All meet behind the Bennett Library at eleven thirty: drivers still needed ....
Update II: The tour will take us to one thirty ....

Ray said...

i'm a glutton for punishment, but anyone intersted in trying the "honour roll" at ubc? :D

Dr. S.A. Ogden said...

Is the honour roll a kind of maki sushi?

With people's schedules, it will be best I discover to have our lunch on the final class day.

jocelyn said...

will said lunch involve sake?

yes please.

kristal said...

whats the estimated length of said tour? (just wondering for daycare hour purposes and pick up and what not)

ann ogawa said...

im sorry but i cannot attend the field trip because I have a presentation for another english class at 1:30. hope you have fun!

Ray said...

the honour roll is a student operated maki-ya at ubc. where it is, i have no clue, but i assume either the sub or village. i just hope it's better than the moon...

i hope weather clears up as i try to take similar pictures from last time as well as not freezing my freakin' hands.

krystal: tour was about an hour last time (but it felt longer cuz it was cold).

and for head count, i'm busing to ubc, so i'll see you guys there.

ahhh is the moon the other japanese place there? because I ate at a japanese place there in the village (obviously not owned by japanese) and their food was terrible

Its closer for me to just bus to UBC as well.. Is that okay? or do we have to meet at sfu for headcount purposes

Rebecca said...

I think I'll bus there too. Somehow I'll find my way there. See everyone soon.

Kevin said...

If you're counting bodies, I will meet up with the class at the gardens, not at SFU

Meghan Edmonds said...

Sorry guys, can't make it. Look forward to hearing about it and seeing more pictures Ray (no pressure).

Also, Kilala sushi on Hastings and Gamma (a few blocks before Willingdon) has the best sushi. The Japanese consulate gets lunch from there. If not tomorrow, check it out sometime!

I can fit three passengers in my car, four if they're tiny people who like being squashed.

I am sorry but I cannot attend the field trip because I have a paper due at 1:30 at my other english class. Hope you guys have fun.
