Re: Biography Translated

Hello Clark,

I saw the book in the Kinokuniya bookstore in Times Square, Tokyo. The Japanese price was 3,675 Japanese yen.

I will ask Doshu to sign the copy I bought when I meet him tomorrow. I am looking foward to reading it carefully, side by side with the original Japanese text, and comparing Mr Izawa's skill as a translator with that of John Stevens.

I am looking forward to reading the reviews, especially from those who believe that Kisshomaru Ueshiba has distorted the history of aikido.

Best wishes,
