I never imagined that the NACOS family is so strong! Recently, I traveled to China for business. On the way home, I had to pass through Tokyo so I decided to stay for a few days. I contacted NACOS and traveled to Fujisawa where I was re-united once again with my beloved instructors. We met in the evening on a pedestrian bridge outside the north entrance of the local railway station. I never felt so welcome! I am very thankful to discover that NACOS has found a good home. Since arriving, we have visited some supermarkets and even a “hyaku en” store (similar to dollar stores in the US). I have had a chance to help Yukiyo San practice her English and Chay San has challenged me to diligently write haiku all via NACOS chat. Before leaving, I hope to have some more time to tour Japan and practice Japanese. I really hope that NACOS will enjoy the Panda cookies that I brought from China and that the NACOS family will continue to grow and flourish.
