Apr. 14, Performed reading at Descanso Gardens

April 14, I presented reading sessions twice at Descanso Gardens in California, the U.S., in its event "Shiki, The Four Seasons in Japanese Art."
Each session was about half an hour long.

I was very grateful for the fine weather and the number of the audience at the event.
After the Descanso Garden event, I received awards from California State Legislature. It was a total surprise for me, and I could not find words to express how much honor I felt.

My sincere gratitude for the recognition. Thank you very much.
A part of the on-going event "Shiki, The Four Seasons in Japanese Art" at Descanso Gardens.
