Event description

Description

***RESCHEDULED*** Now Saturday, June 1!

***Due to the weather forecast of thundershowers on May 25, we have changed to next week. Anyone who ordered bento already has been contacted about refunds***

Join us in this long-term Japanese tradition of having a picnic under the beautiful blossoming trees during spring! Everyone is welcome, including friends and family of JET alumnus.

Since Carleton University is close to the Arboretum, we will be meeting at the university campus at Dunton Tower and then walk over to the area we’ll be using for our hanami and bento picnic.

For those of you who don’t know, the Arboretum is a large 26 hector park, located between Prince of Wales Drive and the Rideau Canal, with a lot of open space. It has over 1,700 of different kinds of shrubs and trees from all over the world – including the famous Japanese cherry blossom trees!

We will be ordering bento from Sushi Fresh :) http://www.sushifresh.ca/menu/lunch-special

We will also be providing some beverages.
