It was fine.

I went to the Kimono-style Miya to have my pictures taken in the morning.

Then I headed for Meguro to attend the JOI almuni luncheon. It is a knid of annual reunion because at this time of the year JOI coordinators' selection is held and the related members in charge in the USA come to Japan for interview.

I was one of the 5th year coordinators and dispatched at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach,  Florida for two years from 2006 to 2008.
This was a kind of volunteer work to be a grass-roots ambassador.
Each site is different. Be flexible. Have fun! These were the lessons I learned from this program.
Every coordinator has valuable experiences which enriched our lives.
I am so grateful to be a part of this program and have worked at the Morikami and met so many people.

About 20 people got together today and we enjoyed delicious foods and chatting.

I left a little bit earlier to meet somebody in Meguro and Shinagawa.

On my way I visited two shrines.

Then I went to Sugita.

It was a rather busy day but I enjoyed seeing many people.

Thank you.

It was fine, but became cold with strong winds in the evening.

In the morning I went to massage which is my once a month healthcare maintenance event. After massage she put moxibustion seals on my soles to warm up. She used the special massage brush on my head and treated my ears wit h special pressure points seals like pierce. I am not sure but I felt different feeling between left and right ear. I am looking forward to feeling the improvement in a week.

After that I went to Shinjuku to attend a seminar which is bimonthly event, and measured AGE.

Then I went to Yoyogi to have crab and blowfish dinner.

After coming home, I cooked something for tomorrow's potluck party.

Today at the Men's Figure Skating, Mr. Yuzuru Hanyu (羽生結弦) got the second gold medal which happened once in 66 years. The silver medal was Mr. Shoma Uno (宇野昌磨). Congratulations!!

It was fine.

Today was the last day of one of the international programs I have been in charge of for the past two years.

It went well.

After that we had a dinner party congratulating the  past 2 years' efforts. The restaurant is specializing in  chicken dishes.
We enjoyed talking, eating, and drinking.
