See everyone there!

Picnic Location Details

From either Osaka or Kobe, take the Hankyu Kobe Line to Shukugawa (Limited Express/Tokkyu stop). Transfer to the Koyoen Line (north, only direction) and get off at the first stop, Kurakuen. From the station's exit, cross the tracks and walk toward the river. Just before the bridge, you'll see an entrance to the park on your right. Walk down toward the river, we'll be just past the "dirt bowling" court.

Advance RSVP is not required, but if you're pretty sure you'll come, it would be reallyhelpful if you could send a quick note about how many people you will bring:

Please bring along friends who normally don't come to KMUG meetings. But by all means, take yourself to the river on May 29!

Check here on Sunday morning if the weather looks iffy - we'll post a cancellation noticehere if the weather forecast conspires against us.

KMUG's Annual Picnic on the Creek!

Sunday, May 29, 1 p.m.

Shukugawa, Kurakuen Station, Nishinomiya

Sunday May 29 is the day to relax with fellow KMUGers and new friends on the lovely Shukugawa River. Enjoy a day outside in temperate May before the rainy season and sweltering summer come on. See map below for directions.

Mark a bold KMUG on your calendar for May 29 and come on down to the river around 1:00 PM. The club will provide "snacking" food like chips & dip to get things started. If you have a special dish you'd like to share with fellow Mac Freaks, either homemade or store-bought, bring it along. And you can pick up beer, soda, and other beverages at a close-by convenience store (1-min. walk).

Note about BBQ: Fires and grills are officially prohibited along the Shukugawa Park, so please refrain from burning here.)
