What to Do for Lunch

We strongly encourage conference participants to buy a lunch each morning and bring it to NINJAL. You will see convenience stores and other places selling lunches in and around every major train station, including Tachikawa.

The area around NINJAL offers very few options for food. The only real restaurant in the immediate vicinity is Zuikyō 瑞京, which serves Chinese food, but it is quite small. There are also two convenience stores within easy walking distance from the conference venue, but they will not be prepared for a sudden rush of customers and are likely to run out of lunches and other popular items.

There are hundreds of restaurants near Tachikawa Station, of course, but the conference lunch breaks will not give you enough time to make the round trip.
