“Every encounter is precious; it will never recur.” That is what I’m always keeping in mind when I meet new people. It is fantastic and exciting to share some time with people from different parts of the world. It is a great joy to let them know much more about Hiroshima, and to be familiar with new things they let me know as well. Looking forward to seeing you!
