First of all, I wish to thank you all of your thoughts and comments for our recent losses in our family. I can not tell you how much your sweets words comforted me. I'm SO blessed having such warmhearted oversea friends through blog.
*Well, I wish to write a quick bright post about New U.S. Ambassador to Japan♪*
She visited Imperial Palace to the ceremony, riding the horse-drawn imperial carriage. Many people tried to catch a glimpses or take photos of her along the way.
So sorry that I only could find the long Japanese version from TV news in you-tube. She was welcomed by many Japanese people.
And this page introduces her visit to Imperial Palace in English.

The shocking news about her father still deep in my mind. Even though I was 8 years old, the scene in rather new black and white TV left quite an impact on me. It seems she is Japanophile (hope it is a proper word) wearing the peal necklace; TV news mentioned about it p;) I DO hope she will be a big helping hand to tighten our ties between Japan and America.
PS> Please forgive me that I haven't been able to visit all my friends yet. I'll find time late tomorrow, my friends.
