|Decoration, Samukawa Jinja|
I was warmly welcomed by Morohoshi sensei (Atsugi Minami Doin) and his family. Morohoshi sensei has been a great friend since we first met at Atsugi Doin in 1985.

We enjoyed a trip to the Samukawa Jinja - a shinto shrine with origins in the 5th century! We also enjoyed a delicious sushi dinner with the Morohoshi family, friends and kenshi of Atsugi Minami Doin.
