How Geocaching Works

The treasure is hidden in a small park not too far from the Tama River. It is off a nature trail, protected by reeds. It is in a clear, rectangular Rubbermaid container, well hidden by a tree. Depending upon the season (Fall, Winter), you might have to push through some tight bamboo. This is easy to reach by car but a long walk from the station. A taxi will cost about 1450 yen.
Lupin has hidden another cache. This time it is in his former host country. We lived in Japan for 9 years, learning and enjoying so much.
Now it is time to put a little something of my culture back.
The cache is hidden in Tokyo Hachioji Takigahara play ground, hidden by reeds near a small bamboo forest. It is a good location for picnics, sports and parties. . There is a playground office with a large free parking lot nearby.
The cache is filled with things that would only be found in the US. Many of them are from my local area.
Some of the items are: Local festival pins, t-shirt, carabiner, lilac festival perfume. All are items you would only find in the US.
If anyone from the US visits the site, please try to keep the theme going.
I want to give a special "Thanks" to Quinn one of the fathers of geocaching, who kindly lent me a GPS, making this first placement possible.
This is an old cache and many people have helped keep it going. Thanks to:
Wenbin for his great effort.
