TO MEGURO-KU KUMIN CENTER:2-4-36,Meguro,meguro-ku,Tokyo
WALKING: From Meguro Station area, travel west on Meguro Dori (down hill) to the river. You should keep to the right hand (north) side of the road. Cross the bridge at the Meguro River, and turn right, following the pedestrian walk-way north toward Ebisu. (In the distance, you should see the green netting of the golf driving range off to the right, and - if it is dark - the lighted exterior of the pedestrian bridge that crosses the river and leads directly into the Kumin Center complex.) Follow the pedestrian walk-way as it borders the river. As you near the Kumin Center, you will see some tennis courts and an outdoor swimming pool on the left. Shortly after this, the walk-way will divide in two, with a ramp leading to the left, up to the pedestrian bridge. At the top of the ramp, turn left into the Kumin Center complex. *Once in the court yard, turn right and enter the "L" shaped building on the right. There is a restaurant on this level, and large glass doors. As you pass through the second set of glass doors into the building, turn left and go to the end of the hall. To the left in front of you, you should see an elevator, take this to the 6th floor. The room is just to the left and forward of the elevators.
*Please note that for the orientation dances, we will be meeting in the GYM, which is the first building on the left as you enter the complex. There is an indoor swimming pool in the basement (as seen through the windows), a bowling alley on the floor above, and the gym is on the floor above that, and can be accessed from the outdoor stairs opposite the doors to the bowling alley.
*4th Floor "Circle" room can be found in the "L" shaped building, however, as you enter the central glass doors, go up the stairs next to the 1st reception desk. On the second floor, walk past the 2nd reception desk, and turn right in the corridor just beyond. Take THAT elevator to the 4th floor. Follow the hallway to the end, and the "circle" room is the last room at the end of the corridor.
BY CAR: There is very limited parking available at the Center. Please tell the attendant that you are with Otori Squares. From Meguro Dori, turn North onto Yamate Dori, and cut to the far right. After two traffic lights, the third light that you will come to will have a right turn lane. Stay in this lane, turning right and keep to the right side of the two East bound lanes. (Look for "RENOWN" on the left and a small TEC sign on the right.) At the next traffic light, turn right again. (These streets are narrow.) Follow this street to the end and turn left. Shortly, you will see a bridge crossing the river, and a street entering at a sharp angle from the right. Turn sharply to the right at this intersection, and the Kumin Center parking will be directly in front of you. After you park your car, take the elevator (to the right of the entrance to the under building parking) from the parking garage directly to the 6th floor.
