Hello there!
Thanks for visiting my web!

How are you all? I’m well and I’m back here! Yes, it’s already the beginning of summer here in
Belgium! How is it in your city?

I had a great time in Tokyo with lots of cherry blossom in April… and it was great to see everybody in Japan. It’s too many to name… but, thanks a lot to everyone who I met there! Hope to see you all soon!

In May, I visited Hanamaki and Tohno in Iwate prefecture, North Japan. It was so nice to see the beautiful countryside of this prefecture… and it was a real pleasure to visit many places and museums in Hanamaki where I could see works of Kenji Miyazawa(my very favourite Japanese author!).

I was also so impressed by the people in Iwate prefecture, they are so kind and relaxed… I loved the peaceful atmosphere of the places… Hope to go back there someday! Well, I am actually going to go back to Japan soon again…
