We recommend you to combine this tournament with the Swedish Midsummer Riichi tournament in Tällberg, 18-20 June. There will be a shuttle bus organised to Tällberg from Stockholm (and Uppsala) so that those who are interested in both tournaments in June can join. The event in Tällberg will include traditional Swedish midsummer activities and excursions June 21-24 (including social play). For more information see http://lirma.studorg.liu.se/?page_id=569.

Accommodation suggestions:
  • Scandic Uppsala Nord (Hotel 5 min walk from the Venue).
  • There are also several hotels and hostels closer to central Uppsala. The venue is about 2 km or 10-15 min by bus from Uppsala Central station, e.g. buses 110, 115, 2 (bus stop “Moskén”, or “Djäknegatan”).
