  1. Dear Mrs. Kawasaki,
    Sorry for my email yesterday, because I wasn’t sure how to deal with your system.

    I realize that you have quite good coverage of how to live in Japan as foreigners, so if you are interested in Makie or if someone is looking for good advice for gardening, please let me know.


  2. Hi,

    When will you publish your Antique show events for July?

    I just learned about the June events today (June 17th) when I received your newsletter, however many of the month’s Tokyo Antique Markets have already passed.

    I enjoy your publication.
