accounts of our trips are described further down the page.
As well as
our trips there continues to be other events taking place
between our two countries such a storyteller another exchange
of students and on the horizon a visit from a Japanese puppet
opera with music composed by Colin Hodgetts.
and myself there are no immediate plans but we both returned
from Japan wishing that we could speak Japanese. We are now
quite seriously learning the language under the expert tuition
of Noriko Williams who is living in this area. Personally
I would like to spend more time in Japan on my next trip.
I would like to spend some more time exploring more of the
places where my grandfather stayed and I would like to spend
some time studying woodblock printing.
