My name is Salem, I’ve lived the past 3 years in neighboring Shiga, and currently I’m leading a team of amateur cyclists across Japan. We’re riding from Wakkanai to Okinawa over the next 2.5 months as a part of the BEE Japan 2009 Ride to promote sustainable living. One of the ways we’re doing this is by sticking to a vegetarian diet, difficult indeed, but thanks to sites like yours that tell people where to find oishii vegetarian and vegan places, not so bad. Anyway, our team is coming through Kyoto between the 11th~13th of September, and we’ll be doing a number of veggie dinner events at several Kyoto restaurants. If possible, I was wondering if you’d be willing to post a little bit about our cycling team on Deep Kyoto and let people know about the events we have planned.
Consider it done! Here are a list of events that BEE Japan (BEE stands for Bicycle for Everyone’s Earth in case you didn’t know) have got planned for September.
Friday September 11th: 18:30~21:30 Dinner @ Falafel Garden
4000 yen per person. Space is limited to 20 people. RSVP by September 5th.
Meet the BEE team, learn about their ride across Japan, and discuss environmental issues over a scrumptious vegetarian spread of falafel, humus, baba ganush, and more.
Saturday September 12th: 6~9pm Vegetarian Buffet at Obanzai
3000 yen per person. Space is limited to 40 people. RSVP by September 6th.
All you can eat vegetarian and vegan buffet! Need we say more! After eating BEE will present about their ride, perhaps play a couple songs, and lead an eco-lifestyle ideas exchange with guests. Bring your appetite and a few thoughts about how to live more sustainably!
