Hello folks,

I usually don't make emails just to say "Me Too", but in this case the level
of service was so excellent that I couldn't avoid joining the chorus.

Hiroshima is indeed enchanting.  I will try to find reasons to return, and
I hope it can be during the time of the Dreamination.  I wish the citizens
of Hiroshima good fortune while traveling along the path to their dreams
of peace.
