My farewell Letter

I left NYC on June 30th, 2000.

Just before leaving, I sent my farewell letter to all.

I wrote the draft of this letter, under advising by my English teacher.

I just like to introduce it.


June 30th, 2000

My dear friends,

I would like to take this occasion to express my deepest gratitude to you.
I am leaving this wonderful New York City after completing my assignments as a representative from Tokyo Metropolitan Government over the past two years.

I arrived at New York City and started my job in March 1998. Since then, I have been devoted to many programs and projects with many New Yorkers. I worked and studied very hard, and you helped me very much. Thanks to your generous cooperation, I was able to carry out my mission. I will never forget the beautiful eyes of all the people who worked hard with me.

As you may know, I have tackled many hardships related to my job and the destiny of my office since late 1999. When I was down, my many friends always encouraged me. I became convinced then that, “Good friends are most important for our lives. Business doesn’t matter compared to this wonderful treasure.” I also thought then that, “I really hope I can someday be helpful to anybody in need.”

I believe friendship can reach anywhere. Even if we are separated by 14,000 mile from tomorrow, it doesn’t matter at all. I think I am very lucky to have had the chance to make such good friends in this city.

I do not intend to say good bye in this letter. I promise I will keep my memories of you in my heart.

I just want to say “ CU soon! I will always be here for you!”

Sincerely yours,


It's al little rainy, and very chilly today in Tokyo.

How are you doing, my friends ?

Actually, I love models.

Especially, I love railway models.

However, today, I like to introduce "Ford Woody Ban".


How about this ?

A Happy New Year !

Hello everybody,

I hope all with you is well this year !


I think I'm a lucky man. Although just two years I stayed in NYC, many friends still greet me in many ways in holiday season, and the gate of new year.

A friend of mine, he is a professional IT designer and photographer, sent me several beautiful and amazing photos to me. I use one under his permission.


This photo is taken by him on the top of the some building in Village.

I love this area so much. I went there several times for business, watching "Blueman Theater", going to Japanese food shop "Nomiya" to talk with everything, etc.

I'm very thankful for providing this photo.
