About[edit]

HIJ (Hackers In Japan) was an idea which is started by a few Japan fans. The primary idea is to do a nice trip with hackers from all around the world to Japan. Idea's to visit are: Akihabara, Tokyo trip, Hackerspace Tokyo, etc.

There will probably be two planes leaving, one from the US and one from Europe.
