Mr. Iijima, Mr. Wada, Mr. Abe and "Makki",
My wife and I returned safely back to the States on 12/2/06 after visiting my aging parents in Japan for two weeks. During that time, we had the pleasure of meeting you people in Tokyo and it was very懐かしい for both of us.
Mr. Abe, we appreciate your kindness in coming to greet us at Tokyo Station and to take us to Iijima Studio via taxi. There at the studio, Tanachin and I had a moment to sing with you and it was a memorable moment for us.
Too bad Mr. Tsuchida was not able to join us. Afterwards, we headed to "魚一丁" and had a feast, and of course Mr. Tsuchida showed up for this feast with his friend who happened to be Mr. Iijima's friend.
After this feast, we all lined up on the sidewalk of Tokyo and sang "IZATATE", what else. By the way, we were right next to a police station and the fact that we weren't arrested meant that we sounded O.K.
Thank you again for your hospitality and the wonderful memory for us to keep. It is good to know that, for us Glee-men, there is a warm "home-away-from-home" for us in Japan. I regret that I didn't get to see Mr. Kagita but my prayers are with him always. Thank you again and please stay healthy.
