I just returned from a trip to Japan which included a trip to a small town just outside of Wakayama City. Noriko helped me locate my relatives. She and I met my cousin and her son. We went to visit my grandparents’ home and the shrine where they are buried. My cousin arranged a short memorial service conducted by the shrine’s priest. Since I don’t speak Japanese she interpreted for me. It was a day I will always cherish. Thank you Noriko for helping to make it happen.
Hello Irene Thank you for your kind review! It is really encouraging for me. I was also glad to be with you on your first visit to your ancestor’s hometown. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Noriko
