This little boy became a father of 2 little girls! After all these years we are all going to Japan together again. 9 of us! We are going to meet dear families from Korea in Shizuoka and Kyoto also. Not to worry about notorious summer heat, extreme humidity and typhoon type rain in Japan can not discourage us, With family love we will succeed anyway! Together we will have the time of our lives!
