Keiko Tsukui.:

Hello, I am Keiko Tsukui. I moved into Gyoda in 1978. Now Gyoda has become my second home town.

 This home town has rich heritages. Above all I am interested in the Sakitama Burial Mounds. I feel peace of mind when I am in this ancient grave yard. The  miraculous encounter for me is that 1400- to- 3,000- year- old lotus seeds were discovered in 1972 and in the next year the lotus had flowers. What a coincidence, Ancient Lotus Flowers and Ancient Grave Yard! Gyoda was also a castle town and very famous in Japanese socks industry. 

It would be my great pleasure to introduce Gyoda City’s historical and cultural sites to foreign people.

 Welcome to Gyoda, and now is the time to expand your curiosity!

Likes:  Peace

Dislikes; Wars

 北浦 玥;

我來自中國,從小生長在北京。一個偶然的機會讓我來到了春花秋月、夏蟬冬雪、四季分明的充滿魅力的東瀛。許多年過去了,我在依舊懷念故的同時,也深深地喜歡上了這片土地,在這里留下了月美好的痕跡。

這裡沒有大城市的喧囂,你可以處處感受到它的幽靜、閒逸,我更喜歡稱之為小鎮,相信你若有機會來這裡走走看看,一定會有收穫,會感受到它的溫馨、歷史人文在婉婉細著古往今來。

 在寧靜的生活環境中,我喜歡做瑜伽,讀、繪畫,很享受靜觀庭院花開花落,任憑月有圓缺的日子。

Miwako Tamura:

Ciao a tutti!  Mi chiamo MIWAKO.

Noi giapponesi scriviamo i nomi con dei caratteri (Kanji). _(・ω・*)

Sapete voi che hanno significato ogni Kanji?

Mio nome scrive cosi`; MI=WA=KO=

(MI) significa bella.(WA) significa pace.(KO) significa bambina.

Allora posso dire io sono una bambina bella della pace! Un bel nome e`?

Anche il (WA) comprende un'altro significato che il Giappone...

Perché non vediamo delle cose belle giapponesi con tranquillo, con MIWAKO?
