【Thank you!】Doggy Day Trip to Koma, Saitama Supported by AWT

Doggy Day Trip to Koma, Saitama (from Tokyo) – Supported by AWT

On Sunday, October 16th, we invite you (and your furry friends) to join us to escape city life for the day!

Meeting at Ikebukuro station, we will catch the train to Koma, Saitama, at the foothills of the Chichibu mountains. There, a special organic lunch will be provided by Alishan Café, followed by free-time to relax or explore the countryside. This beautiful area is surrounded by meadows, a river, and mountains.

Not only will this be a fun day trip for humans and dogs alike, but it is also for a good cause! 15% of the participation fee will be donated to ARK.

Everyone is welcome to join, with or without a furry friend!


※Animal Walk Tokyo was formed in 2010 by a small group of people living in Tokyo with a drive for helping the animals around us. Each person involved had a passion for contributing, but not one of us was able to find information in English on how to do so without adopting or fostering.
