The Dartmouth Club invites Harvard Club of Japan members to the Niseko Green Weekend, held for the 6th consecutive year at the end of this month. We have regularly brought together alumni from around the Asia Pacific region for a weekend of networking, dining, general enjoyment and a keynote academic discussion as well as, of course, skiing and snowboarding.
Due to the travel restrictions and challenges for our colleagues in the People's Republic of China in connection with the novel corona virus, many have had to bow out of this year's event, (Niseko remains, gratefully, virus free), so we would like to open the event to other schools both to fill in the gaps and explore the idea of continuing the Niseko Green Weekend as a more comprehensive inter-club event in future years.
The main features of the event are a welcome dinner on February 28th (this year at the very popular Ezo Seafoods restaurant) and a key note dinner (at the acclaimed Kitchen bistro produced by Michelin starred chef Yuichi Kamimura) on February 29th with cocktails before and afterwards.
We try to group as many people who are interested in the same condominium building so that casual interactions can occur over breakfasts and in going on the mountain together. If there are enough people attending who are not interested in on-mountain activities, we also arrange side tours. Last year was to Otaru and there is some interest in a tour to the volcanic scenery at Lake Toya for this year. We can also assist with all the logistics between Shin-Chitose Airport and Niseko as well as equipment rentals and lessons if required.
We welcome you and the Harvard community to explore the Niseko Green website and encourage anyone who would like to participate to register on the site or contact project organizer Clifford Bernstein as below.
