Oh, that's another story altogether. The "any date is OK" was from a
logistic point of view. Typhoons *are* very likely to happen through the
whole month of september. (I remember, on sep 11th - hem - last year we
had a bad one, killed 5 people IIRC.)

The beginning of october is a lovely season in Japan, not yet the
beginning of the touristic season (fall foliage begins at the end of
october) but really nice. So, since the bad weather ends around the
first week of october, and that the touristic (and thus expensive)
season begins at the end of october, I definitely think it's better to
have the meeting around oct 7.

Better, but not mandatory.
