I move from New York this morning.
JFK Airport is a marked decrease of a government staff,
system of departure and arrival service were just like 20 years before.
The correspondence in airport stuff and cabin attendants looked tired, so the gentleness to the person is lost.
But the beautiful blue sky and scenery changed from a window in summer from winter,
my feeling was rescued.
The temperature isn't high by a cause of a cold wave today.
I came from Tokyo and New York in cold winter.
I would like to have my footstep in Miami.

I'm going to explain Japanese culture through an exhibition, a lecture and a tea ceremony targeted for the student,
the children, the professional artist and the person of Japanese descent in the facilities local university
and Japan have in USA Miami and Brazil San Paulo from the next day.

everything without privacy is government affairs.
I have no ability, but I'm going to correct a attitude by the feeling which represents a country.
