Also, as a nijikai option, the Tokyo Canadians ice hockey gang is holding a party that night in Omotesando as well. For this one, you should consider buying tickets in advance as they can get pretty busy. Here are the details:

5. Interested in Yokohama hockey?
If you would like to play on Sundays in Yokohama (near Hodogaya and Hoshikawa stations), please let me know.
A few people have inquired about what happened to hockey in Yokohama. Basically, there was a lack of interest, so we more or less stopped making the rink reservations. However, since there seems to be come interest and the weather is improving, maybe it is something we can resume. Let me know your thoughts.
