I'd like to inform people in the Tokyo area that the annual Mongolian 
students' Spring festival (Havriin Bayar, in one of its spellings) will 
be taking place this coming Sunday and Monday in Hikarigaoka Park. 
Sunday May 3 noon to five and Monday May 4, ten till four. A stage 
featuring Mongolian music and dance, various tents (ger) featuring 
Mongolian calligraphy and other cultural aspects, information stalls 
with travel details, CDs and packs of rock salt, and food stalls 
selling Mongolian food -- personally I always go for the meat 
dumplings. Pretty well all the Mongolian rikishi will be there 
(naturally!), with the yokozuna taking a day each. There is usually a 
demonstration of Mongolian wrestling, and if I recall correctly, some 
sumo as well. It's not always completely the same every year.

If you want to go and don't know how to get to Hikarigaoka, Google it 
-- or use Hyperdia.
