Annual trip to Ishinomaki

We wish all of you a bright and happy new year!

Some stories that I am going to post are about what happened last year, but I hope you enjoy them!

Since the Tsunami, March 11th 2011, we have visited Yoko's quilt shop in Ishinomaki at least once a year. Masako cannot forget what Yoko's mother once said to her, "Please don't forget about us and what happened here."

Some students were familiar and some were new.

They all seemed to like the Christmas tapestry project.

Upon arriving at the store, we found a great seafood feast awaiting us!

Squid sashimi

Abalone sashimi

Stewed whale

The good news was that most of the students were able to find new places to live and could leave their temporary housing.

Some promised to come to Tokyo Dome Show!
