Dear members,

another year has passed and it's again time for the Yokota Friendship Festival! :)

The official info page is here

=> http://www.yokota.af.mil/library/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=9137 (English, HTML)

=> http://www.yokota.af.mil/shared/media/document/AFD-070717-001.pdf (日本語, PDF)

Shay (Freeride39) and Ken (KWill) have gladly agreed to organise the this year's TCC tour to Yokota, but asked TCC to take care of the PR work. Basically, our visit to Yokota will follow last year's schedule, more info on that here. This year our tour will be official though.

The precise time and meeting place will be posted soon, the tour will take place on August 25, 2007. Members will need to bring valid IDs (with picture and not expired, as Shay pointed out). Our bicycles will be parked inside the base next to the gates. After following events at the base, we will move over to the Ishikawa Sake Brewery in Fussa.
:beer2:

Watch this space for further announcements. :)

Waiting for more details!
Where do we start from within Tokyo??
Hi Walter,

good to see you back. I guess the meeting point will be Fussa. I don't know if any other "easterner" will join, but I'll ride out Ome-kaido and Itsukaichi-kaido. If you come from Shinagawa, we could arrange for a meeting in Shinjuku and head out together.


That was a good day Thomas
Indeed, wasn't it? :)

I'm really looking forward to this year's festival. Hope it's not only the C-130 occupying the airspace. :D


Hey in the picture, where is the girl in black with black sunglasses, I never seen her again after this Tour?
Neither have I. Miki-san used to be one of my students.

I'm planning to go to this. Last year took the train but might be persuaded to ride! Will be leaving from Ikebukuro so it looks like a few people from this side of Tokyo might be along for the ride.

I'd like to join in - if poss

Hi guys,

I should be back in Tokyo for then - If possible I'd like to come along- it's about time I met you all.
Reading the posts it looks like Walter is the closest to me (I'm over at Akabanabashi) so if you like I can join in with Walter for the ride.

What's the deal with non-US or Japanese visitors?

The base has a list of countries that need special permission for those citizens to enter the base. If you have any issues or questions about the country your residence, let me know and I will check for you.

Identification...

Hi guys,

What's the deal with non-US or Japanese visitors?

Greg
It's called "National Security!" I still need to take my Aussie passport to the Australian Embassy if I want to go in.

I AM however, very much looking forward to the "Air-Show"! I hope there will be one this year. Love those F-14s, F-15s, F-16s & F-18s.
(F-14s are maybe out, though)!

Those guys are even faster than Christoph!

Q's

Any country that is a U.S. Allie is no problem with getting on base.

If you have any issues or questions about the country your residence, let me know and I will check for you.
Does being British count for special permission, (doesn't normally carry any weight in the world anymore but I can always live in hope;)), or will passport be adequate.
