Dear Mr. Yagi and Mr. Shirogane,

  Hello from Marie Sanae Otani in Hawaii! I was very happy to read your message and receive your letter! I'm sorry that it took so long to reply. My parents and I got sick soon after I got your letter. The three of us are all well now.

  I look at my Japan tour photo album from 1988 once in a while. It was my first tour to Japan and I enjoyed visiting Kamuro, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Miyajima, Hakone, Kyoto, Tokyo, and other places and I remember it well. I have fond memories of the meeting the relatives in Kamuro,

  My second tour of Japan was with my cousin in 2008. We dropped by Kamuro for just a short visit at night. We took pictures with the Ninomiya Kinjiro statue. We went to Hakuseiji temple and although Niiyama-sensei wasn't there, Mrs. Niiyama kindly opened the temple for us. I'm attaching two photos from that visit.

Please excuse my poor Japanese writing!

1988年の日本旅行の写真、時々出します。 最初のツアーだから、家室、福岡、愛媛、広島、宮島、箱根、京都、東京等 よくおぼえてます。家室のみんなのにぎやかな顔、いいメモリです。
2008年、いとこと一緒にもう一度日本のツアー行きました。家室ちょっととまりました。二宮金次郎さんといっしょに写真とりました。 泊清寺まいりました。
