These are the travel arrangements from Mr Heimer:
13:30 departure from genkan. Players will need to leave class at 13:20 during period 5, and meet in the genkan to take taxis to Shin-Osaka station. There will be 6 taxis, so 4 students in each taxi = about ¥1,150 per student.
Graduates living near SOIS can take taxis with us, or meet us at Shin-Osaka station (in front of the central ticket gate) around 14:10. I need to know your plans in advance, so Mr Heimer can cancel some taxis if they are not needed.
We are taking the Nozomi 109 shinkansen from Shin-Osaka at 14:25. From Shin-Iwakuni station we will take taxis to the MC Perry base. Again, with 4 students per taxi, it should cost around ¥900 per student.
Please remember to bring your passport, otherwise you cannot get onto the base. You should also bring your insurance card in case of any injuries.
On Saturday night we've booked a restaurant in Shin-Iwakuni so we can have dinner together before returning to Osaka. This will be the last chance for the team to be together with the seniors. The reservation is from 5:15pm at the Campagne Italian restaurant (menu here). We will have around 90 minutes for dinner before our shinkansen.
