  • March 2014 Liberty Calendar http://www.facebook.com/MisawaLibertyProgram   Farmer‟s Market & Recycle Shops   *******************************************************************************  Departure: 15 MAR @ 0900 Return: 15 MAR @ Aprox. 1700  Blue Jacket Special Price: E1-4 FREE! Registration Deadline: 13 MAR  E5 & Above Price: $10  Includes: Transportation & Guide  *******************************************************************************   FARMERS MARKET: If you’re looking for a way to save money while living in Japan, buying produce from local farmers is a surefire way to do just that. A great way to find local or organic produce is by visiting a farmer’s market. One of the things about farmer’s markets is that the produce is often incredibly cheap compared with prices at the supermarket. You might come away with bags full of fruit and vegetables for around 1000 yen or less. Of course, you can’t find every type of fruit or vegetable at a farmer’s market, because most of the produce will be whatever is in season and grown in Japan (which isn’t a bad thing at all).   RECYCLE SHOPS: Everything in Japan is expensive, but if you want to save some money, these 2nd hand shops (or recycle shops) may be the way. Bargaining and haggling is not the done thing in Japan, so don’t expect much of a discount if you don’t like the price. Recycle shops are a great place to find every-day items, used clothes, sports & hobby equipment, and TONS of genuine Japanese items that make great souvenirs or keepsakes. * Event times are subject to change without prior notice. **Departures and event times will be prompt according to the schedule, please be early. ® = Pre-registration is required; email or phone calls accepted for FREE events only.

  • March 2014 Liberty Calendar http://www.facebook.com/MisawaLibertyProgram Yabusame An archer on a running horse shoots three special "turnip-headed" arrows successively at wooden targets. A red parasol is displayed if the rider hits the target. The history of Japanese horseback archery dates back to the 4th century, however, women mounted archers are a modern innovation. Every spring in Towada, women from around the area demonstrate their marksmanship while balancing on a galloping horse! Sakura Hirosaki Park is one of Japan's best cherry blossom spots. With its abundance of over 2500 trees, cherry blossom tunnels, petal filled moats, numerous pleasant picnic areas, rental rowing boats, many varieties of cherry trees and illuminations in the evenings, it feels like multiple great cherry blossom spots combined into a single one. ************************************************************************************** Don’t Forget to Bring: Cell Phone & Camera Minimum of ¥5,000 or MORE - ATMs are not everywhere so bring enough to last the whole trip Bring an umbrella if rain is in the forcast! ************************************************************************************** * Event times are subject to change without prior notice. **Departures and event times will be prompt according to the schedule, please be early. ® = Pre-registration is required; email or phone calls accepted for FREE events only.
