19 April 2012: Dinner & a Show
Thursday evening we will have a dinner at our favorite local organic restaurant, Green. We’ve booked out the whole restaurant from 7 – 10 pm. Note: Green is small, so this will be standing-room only (but delicious and fun!). We will meet you in the New Grand Hotel lobby at 6:30 to walk over, for those of you that would like to go together. YIS is sponsoring this dinner.

We’ll meet outside the turnstiles in the Marine Tower entrance to Motomachi station at 6:45 to head down to Tokyo together. The cost of the dinner is on you, and you’re more than welcome to stay out in Tokyo afterwards to explore more of the city.
