A friend from Kobuchihama have come to Tokyo to help out one of here friends here. Ishihara-san arranged with a dinner for her volunteer group at KotoKoto to “celebrate” that Shinobu-san was in Tokyo.
It was fun to meet Shinobu-san and great to see here smile and laugh after the tough year they had since the 3/11 earthquake. I know Shinobu-san’s top-most want-to-travel-to country right now is Sweden so I had bought some Swedish things for her on my business trip last week. She seemed to appreciate it 🙂
