Comments from Masako!
Japan in the Suitcase のプログラムで、学校訪問をさせて頂き、日本に興味を持って参加してくれる子供たちと出会える事はとてもうれしく感じます。私が出来ることは、ほんの些細な事ですが、子供たちにとって何かのきっかけやひとつの経験として残れば幸いです。これからも、日本とアメリカの素晴らしい関係が続きますようお祈りしています。
Thank you for honoring me with the Lily McMahan award. I would like to thank the Japan-America Society of the State of Washington for giving me the opportunity to volunteer.
I am so happy and grateful for the opportunity to visit schools and meet participating children who are interested in Japan through the Japan in the Suitcase program. My contribution is small but if some part of this program leaves a lasting impression on the children who participated, I am happy. I pray that Japan and the US will continue to have a wonderful friendship.
Participation is free, but DONATIONS are always welcome!
