June 7 Sunday we had a welcome to Japan dinner party at CPO club on base in Yokosuka for 6 guests from California, USA. 50 people came to enjoy the dinner and meeting and talking with the guests from USA. After the dinner we had a short walking tour of the base. At 3pm we started our joint Enbu with the guests from Tokyo, Yokohama and USA. It was a good opportunity for everyone to see the different Aikido techniques.We all enjoyed the excellent demo conducted by the Guests from USA.
