          Dan M
          No questions. I was stationed at Misawa Air Base between 1966 and 1970 and we took trips to Hirosaki for the Cherry Blossom Festival every year, I loved Hirosaki and often travelexd there on my own always staying at the Ishiba Ryokan. I found the Ishiba Ryokan by chance and didn't speak any Japanese at the time. After checking in for the first time I left the hotel to go visit Hirosaki Castle. One of the staff asked me a question in Japanese which I didn't understand. Suddenly a young Japanese woman behind me said in English "They want to know if you are going to eat dinner here tonight?". That was Hisako Ishiba, owner's daughtere who had just returned from a university in Tokyo. Hisako was my guide, put me on the right buses, etc. The Ishiba family became great friends and I visited them as often as possible. I returned to Japan in 1978 andI taught English in Japan from 1979 to 2014 when I returned to the U.S. I lived most of my life in Sapporo, Japan but I always considered Hitosaki my "furusato", home town.
