The answer relates on what times do we go to the exact location which is defined in the problems. We have to make a interrogative sentence based on the location given in the question asking when do we want to go based on the exact time which is also given in the problems. The time given in the problems can be in an exact date such as 11th of June or a normal time marker such as tomorrow, next month, etc. When asking time, we can use いつ in a sentence which means when.
