Awesome, thanks! Our group is planning a trip in November to Japan for the anniversary of Shioda Gozo Sensei and this will help greatly! We are there for around two weeks and only have three days of pre-registered events to do so I am sure some people will make their way to Aikikai honbu. I would love to go to Daito Ryu honbu to visit Kondo Sensei's dojo but I think a requirement is at least a modicum of conversational Japanese...at least telepohonic inquires are required to be in Japanese. Thanks again!
