Last week, Fred Jarbro Sensei from Sollefteå, Sweden came to Japan for 8 days. His main purpose was to attend an instructor's seminar held in Ikebukuro. He dedicated the rest of his time to self-training and going to as many Shiramizu classes as possible to train and to help instruct. Arakawa Sensei felt that Fred Sensei was spending too much time doing karate and needed some touristy activities. So last Monday, Arakawa Sensei, his wife Keiko san, Fred Sensei and I went sightseeing in Asakusa and took a sea bus to see Tokyo Bay as well as visit Hamarikyu Garden in Tokyo!! Unfortunately, Louise had to work that day so she couldn't come with us =(

We stopped in a teahouse in the garden for some traditional matcha tea and sweets.
