TOKYO! Isn't it maybe time for a meetup? Early or mid-March?

Well, one Mefimail just rolled into my inbox, and I'll reprint it here, so folks will know where woodblock100 stands on this, and also to share the link he sent me, cause he's a damn fine artist, as many of you Tokyo folk know... here's his mail:


I _knew_ this would happen ... silence from everybody for months, and then - during my busiest time of the year! - a meetup suggestion ...

I've got an exhibition coming up, my first in nearly three years:

So I don't know ... unless the date/time happens to coincide with other business downtown, it's going to be difficult for me to be part of this one ... sorry!


Personally, I'd be sad if he couldn't attend, and if there are others of you for whom this is just not a good time, I'm quite happy to say let's push it further back, later March, early April perhaps. Well, we'll see.

If it were early April, I would do my best to attend. Late March might coincide with a trip home, just waiting to find out. It'd be nice to finally meet you folks.

I suggest you push it further, to Fukuoka!

How many Mefiers down Fukuoka way, that girl? Any idea?

Early enough April or late enough March and I could come.

My nearby users shows me 2 people, one in Fukuoka, the other in Yamaguchi, neither active in the past couple years.

I plan on making it as far east as Osaka on the last weekend of April, but I probably won't go to Tokyo until around Umi no Hi or Obon.

Well, that girl, you've given us our second meetup of the year! Umi no Hi beach party meetup!

(Checks physique, realizes pictures will likely be taken, rethinks)

Umi no Hi meetup in Tokyo!

Too early and too far east. I'll be in Osaka, Kyoto, and Hiroshima near the end of May, if anyone will be around...

Please count me in as a tentative maybe. My son's entering chugaku this year and March/early April's already pretty filled up doing various graduation-related mom-business. But I'd love to see you all if time allows.

Why not have it in late March / early April and make it a hanami outing?

(except that I'll be back in the US from the 27th to the 7th...)

Meet halfway, in Osaka!

Hi folks, armage clued me in to this, I posted here before I knew this thread was open.

Anyways, I'll be in town between the 12th and 18th of March, flying out on the morning of the 19th. If anything happens during this period I'd love to join. Otherwise, if anyone wants to hang out, let me know...
