Saturday evening party at The Blarney Stone Shinsaibashi / Sunday afternoon Hanami in Osaka Castle Park

(Part 1) Saturday, March 30, 2019 - 2:00pm to 6:00pm * Nijikai: 9:00pm to 11:30pm at The Blarney Stone Shinsaibashi
(Part 2) Sunday, March 31, 2019 - 2:00pm to 6:00pm at Osaka Castle Park

Part 1

Due to the rainy weather forecast in the afternoon we've decided to nix part 1 of our hanami weekend, but the evening Nijikai at the Shinsaibashi Blarney Stone is still on, starting from about 9:00 or whenever you'd like to join us.

Come join the Osaka JALT team for the first of our double-header hanami celebrations of 2019 from 2 to 6 pm in Osakajokoen (Osaka Castle Park). This is a FREE event which is open to everyone, so please feel free to bring family, friends, colleagues, students, or people you meet on the train. Bring something to eat and drink, as well as a happy vibe to celebrate the cherry blossoms and the coming of spring! Stop by when you can for as long or as short as you like. Look for our blue JALT banner on the south side of the park, due south of the castle and north of the NTT Building, to the west of the bus parking area, an easy walk from Morinomiya or Tanimachiyonchome metro stations. If you have any trouble finding us please call 080-5354-7398 or 080-3772-0449.

In the evening, join us at The Blarney Stone in Shinsaibashi to check out Osaka's pop/glam rock/television theme song cover band, The Ballbreakers, led by our chapter Publicity Chair, Paul Mathieson, playing from about 9:00 to 11:30 pm. That's sure to be a lot of fun , and a great way to help get ready for the new school year! There's a private party at the Blarney Stone before 9:00, and some of us will be meeting before that from about 7:30 at the nearby Slices restaurant/bar.
