I went there by myself so when I got there I had no idea what to do.
But there was one person who was familiar to me and I checked the name....
He was the father of my classmate in Jr. and high school!!!
What a coincidence!!! I had seen him before once but it was a few seconds. So I didn't expect that he would be there so it was surprising but after I knew there was someone I knew, I relieved:)
I met many people there and only common thing of us was everyone was from Hyogo.
But it was nice to talk with them about where we from, how is work and life in NY.
There was special a guest for that party too. It was governor Ido.
If I was in Japan I don't think I had chance to talk to him so it was good experience for me too.
Now I don't have much time to meet Japanese people and talk in Japanese so it was good for me to talk without thinking and be in conversations of Kansai accent... lol
And also I really like to find how world is small!!! Many people is connecting in many ways. So it was really fun night!! :)
