We had the 2nd reunion party with alumni living in Kansai area. It was held at Iori in Kyoto in a beautifully renovated house along the Kamo-River, where we had a great dinner. About 10 current scholars and alumni joined that night.
Perhaps because the attendees have lived in Kansai area for a long time, they have taken on regional characteristics, observed when the self introductions were seasoned with wit and humor. We are thankful for having this relationship with all the members that came. We would like our people in both Kansai and Tokyo areas to have more opportunities for interaction.
