Tendo City sent me to Marlborough to help design laying our Japanese Garden Park in 1995. I was very glad that I received a hearty welcome from the Mayor and other citizens involved. It gave me a new emotion, because I had little experience like that until then. Soon I became a member of T.I.E. I feel now that it is interesting to meet and talk with foreigners. I would like to participate in many programs with pleasure.
