“ Great communicator and tour! ”

We recently did the “Online experience: Furoshiki Lesson and Stroll Historical Area” with Mikiko. We have a unique connection to Kagoshima in that we have a dear friend who lives there. Ayano was a foreign exchange student who stayed with us in the summer of 1987. Ayano is the person who does the Furoshiki lesson and she is a Kimono master. Mikiko is super easy to communicate with both online (written communication) and on the virtual tour (verbal communication). The Furoshiki lesson was learning how to utilize the ancient custom of using squares of cloth to wrap items and carry items. Mikiko translated as Ayano demonstrated and I now know how to wrap a gifts that will amaze my friends, since I’m not known to be very crafty! Our walk to the Kagoshima Castle was quite nice. I loved learning the history of the castle and seeing the moss covered trees and walls of the castle. If we should ever have the opportunity to visit Kagoshima, we would definitely call Mikiko to give us a tour of the city and see Mt. Sakurajima.

Mikiko:

Thank you, Janet! I'm very happy to have you this virtual tour and reunion of you and Ayano! When you visit Kagoshima, I would be definitely happy to take you many interesting and cultural places with teacher Ayano!! Let's take a walk in Kimono with a furoshiki bag! I'm very looking forward to meeting you some day in the near future!!
