Japan: Spring Meet-up

This event is organised by Sweden Alumni Network Japan and is open to members of the network.

Long time no see! Welcome to a spring meet-up of Sweden Alumni Network Japan (SWAN)!

After a long year of no physical events and meet-ups we thought it’s time to arrange for an event where we all could meet, but still stay safe from any Corona risks. In doing so we have been looking for a place with good ventilation and open enough to maintain social distancing, and we think we’ve found just the place: the outdoors!

For our Spring meet-up we would like to invite you all to a walk around the Imperial Palace followed by an outdoor fika in the Hibiya Park. Around the palace trees from all of Japan’s prefectures have been planted, why it is also said that a lap around the palace is a lap “around Japan”. The course is around 5 km and takes around one hour to finish.

Once we’ve finished our lap around Japan we will have a small outdoor fika at the nearby Hibiya Park – of course while maintaining social distancing. We will arrange for some Swedish drinks and fika, and will also take a look at a finding from the Viking age…
