Our Yokohama Memoir Class
This memoir class in Yokohama will end on June 24th. Watanabe Kichio Sensei will be teaching his new essay class starting next month. Most of the people in the photo joined this class a year and three months ago. So, I thought this gathering was a goodbye party.

I like the way he teaches. He gives us great freedom to write, but he helps us in editing to make our manuscripts look professional.
I've been learning quite a lot in this class, but it's much more. I look forward to our meetings.
It'll be sad if we lose this class.
By now, I know each classmate quite a bit, where they were born, what school they had gone, and so on.
Here are my two favorite classmates. They are opinionated and hilarious. I wish I can introduce them, but perhaps, I can do that when they publish their memoir.
At the end of this party, one of the classmates asked the group members if anyone would join the new essay class. They all said yes. So, this wasn't a goodbye party after all.
