How to get there...

Take the Hankyu Kobe line to Shukugawa Station, which is one stop west (toward Kobe) from the major Hankyu station Nishinomiya Kitaguchi. At Shukugawa Stn. change to the northward spur line and go to the first station, Kurakuen Guchi. After leaving the station, cross the train tracks and walk a few steps toward the river; just before the bridge crossing the river, you'll see a path down to the river on your right. Go down the stairs and look for us just past the restrooms and "lawn ball" court (well-maintained dirt area).

No reservation is required, just show up. But if you're bringing a large gang, it would be helpful if you could drop a line at


Kinki-Net Revival: It's back!


For a long time our club's online forum, Kinki-Net, has been dormant and often non-functional. The club's admins have put up a brave but near-futile fight against hackers, aged forum software, and buggy interface templates. Recently, however, the club invested in some software upgrades, got some solid advice, and put the forum back into practical operation.
