Meeting Yukiko Yokono, our Japan Foundation Consultant

I attended a dinner in Tulsa in honor of Yukiko Yokono, our Japan Foundation Consultant in Tulsa. Her friends and the people from the Japan Foundation reviewing her work in Oklahoma were delightful. The meeting took place at an Amish farm called, The Millers.

The food was delicious and the company great. My students and Oklahoma City instructors will love meeting Yukiko. By the time she goes back to Japan, she would have served our state for two years as the Japan Outreach coordinator for the Center for East Asia Studies.

I also met Mrs. Farringer. She is considering being our Tea Ceremony instructor. She will come to Oklahoma City this coming Monday, January 30th to see if she wants to commit. I hope she would do so.

Although the drive was long, the meeting was productive and the food Oishi! Posted by Picasa
