Since when I started to study English,I made an account on Myspace. It almost the first time to be in online community then I met a Japanese woman who is studying English like I do. Her name is Kaori. We exchanged some e-mails in English sometimes,her skill is good so I always wanted make a sentence like her. We invited each other when we found a nice community or learning languages site at online.  She is be in TB member without omission.

After we have having communicate few years,Her place got damages by Tsunami and an earthquake as Tohoku erthquake in March 2011. About 6months later from that day,Kaori started to meet all people who she wants to meet now in her life. So she came to Osaka to meet me!!! Seems like her scheudule are much tight neverthless she made almost whole day for me.

We went to Kyoto from Osaka by a train.

We are the first time face to face,but seems like I met my old friend. Kaori is so friendly and we talked about a lot of things. I didn't feel far away riding on the train for one hour.

We walked around Ysaka-Shrine and went to Kiyomizu Temple. There is my favorite street called "Sannei-zaka" during get to Kiyomizu temple. We enjoyed looking at pretty stuffs and souvenir, I got a small vase with japanese traditional design. I thought that I didn't travel with a woman friend who is around same age recently,so this was something fresh for me and I loved it. 

We had a lunch on the way to explore the city and by accident found an exhibition at the temple. This exhibition is very popular as TV program showed it sometimes,because the writter has down's syndrome but her mother gave her a brush and Chinese ink when she was still childhood. This handwritting was an awesome. We were lucky to see that by own eyes.

We spent very rich time I think. Thank you for coming Osaka to see me,Kaori. I learned many things from you.
