Karuizawa Charity Concert

On Saturday, May 7 Trio Ray (Abi, Yoshimi, and me) gave two charity concerts at the coffee shop of Megumi Chalet in Karuizawa, a town in the mountains about a 3 hour drive from Tokyo. Over $500 was raised for relief work in northern Japan! During the whole concert, we showed pictures from travels up north and told stories about the needs there.

After the concert, one 80-year-old gentleman played a song for me that he wrote for the survivors of the tsunami. His wife then joined in and sang. It was so touching! I wish I had it on video to show you...
