Some people are still under the impression that our sale this weekend is in the same location as last year. Let me make this clear…
IT’S NOT THE SAME PLACE!!
Here again are the directions in case you didn’t catch them in earlier postings:
Location: Very close to Demachiyanagi Station at the 左京西部いきいき市民活動センター (Sakyou Nishibu Iki-iki Shimin Katsudou Center).
From Demachiyanagi Station head east. You will pass Heming Sports Club on your right and on your left, there is a broad area of azalea hedge. Turn left at the hedge! Go straight up until you see a small tobacco shop directly in front of you. Take the road to the left of the shop and go up again. You will pass a temple on your right and then another temple on your left. Just a few steps further on your right is the Iki-iki Shimin Katsudou Center. There is a kindergarten on the ground floor. Go up to the second floor and we are at the far end of the building in Room 3. We are looking forward to seeing you!
You can also check the google map here which has the route marked from Demachiyanagi Exit 5.
