When I arrived at JIU today, I ran into the owners of the flower shop in my neighborhood. What a nice surprise! They were here to see our new exhibition at our museum and were very nice to bring me this great flower arrangement.
Another great surprise was the phone call from Matsudaira Yoshito. He had great news: he received his PhD and was hired by a college in Fukushima Prefecture as an associate professor. He was a student in the very first class I taught at JIU in 1992 and you cannot imagine how proud I am of him!
