It was a beautiful day. Dogwood was beautiful in the garden of the institute.
Dogwoods were sent to Japan from Washington D.C. in1915 after the present of cherry trees from Tokyo in 1912.
Dogwoods are now seen all over Japan. In Kofu, they are beautiful in this season of the year.
In the evening an ex-colleague of mine came to Kofu from Kumamoto to celebrate the tomorrow’s wedding of my ex-student/present colleague.
The ex-colleague from Kumamoto, the other ex-student/present colleague, and I had dinner together at Ohajiki, a well-known chicken restaurant in Kofu. The entrance is very small; you must bend yourself down to get in.
The chickens are of Yamanashi prefecture, and the quality of meat is always satisfactory. This is a place of recommendation to visitors to Kofu.
I had a glass of beer and some brochettes, and left them for home. I will meet both of them tomorrow.
