This year, a lot of high school students both from Uwajima and Hawai’i presented wreaths on behalf of Governor and Mayor.
There are people I can see only once a year here such as some bereaved family members.
It’s been 10years since I began to attend the Memorial in Kakaako. In order to help keep the memory, I decided to present wreath not as individual but as NPO I’M MATSUYAMA from this year. Happy friends are organizers for the Memorial Ken-san of EMMA, JASH Chair Steve, President Kaneko-san, former President Ed and Honolulu Mayor, three of whom I met at Shimanami Int’l Cycling Event in Imabari just last autumn.
