2017/7/19 To Bagkok

Day 2nd in Bangkok

No`t so good condition for Walk around.
Because A little bit rainy in this morning.
Already no`t enough time!
We were quick breakfast and go!
SAITO was eat good. May be still yang.

As First, we were visited KYODO NEWS in Silom Complex Building.
Mr.CHIKAZAWA (Chief Asian Correspondent) was came to Phuket at latest memorial service.
I already met to him one time.

And He have own opinion of Change day for Memorial service.
Actually TSUNAMI Memorial day is 26/Nov, Event not easy to change to day of 5/Nov World Tsunami Awareness Day.

Of course, It is no`t so easy.
We also understand.

But in reality, more than ten years already and bereaved families are aging.
Also, Every costs to high and most busy for every business in Phuket. Because 26/Dec is  High Season in Phuket.
Air Ticket from Japan, Hotel fare, everything….
It is so bad timing for invite to attendant.

Most important thing from bereaved families.
Keep mind of TSUNAMI Disaster and open memorial service.
So, actually day 26/Dec, Only small memorial service still I`m open by my self.

And This year will exchange friendship from ISHINOMAKI in JAPAN and Phuket.
ISHINOMAKI Childrens will try Reaf Stamp and make Flag of Japan and Thai.

Mr.CHIKAZAWA will back to japan soon, New person Ms.INOUE Introduction for us.

I feel sad and want to next destination.

I have been met to him. But After start NPO PLAJA at first time.

What is different?  Japanese Association in Thailand and NPO PLAJA.
Japanese Association is only for Japanese, And NPO PLAJA is International exchange from Any kind People.

They have good idea for us.

I know about the situation of economy in japan.
Maybe, In this generation is You do best for yourself only.

So… Yes. Become impoverished province area and no chance…
Of course. I have no idea. I`m very small.

But if collect a small persons, after will be change to big power.
I think if we can do that, we can help and support for some one also society too.

And if we have a more communications, we can make more good life too.

“Do something for something other than yourself”

It is difficult at individual, but group is possible. It is good or no`t i dont know, Example sardines or locusts…

We are start to try.
