Happy New Year!.
Please give my best wishes to Iida Sensei. I suspect he might be an interesting person to talk to about Takeda Sokaku. Actually, I have just discovered that a colleague of mine comes from Aizu-Wakamatsu and so I have a contact, should I go to visit when the weather improves. It is quite a long way from Hiroshima and so I will have to do things properly and include Hokkaido as well.
Akemashite omedeto gozaimasu!
I passed on your regards to Sensei last night at practice. He would have like to talk to you a little more last time you met but you were very busy.
Summer is beautiful up here. We're having a little embu and seminar in May. I'm sure he'd love to see you. I'm wary of getting too much into historical discussions involving documents as when the obscure terminology starts I begin to make small whimpering noises
I'll try to talk a little more to the current shrine priest, but you might make a better fist of it.
