I have come to Vladivostok. Along with Elena, two men came to pick us up at the airport. It was my first time meeting the two, but strangely, I felt close to them like I knew them from before. Master Idaki Shin said, "Compatriots." I nodded. It was strange that I felt closer to them than Japanese people—a delightful experience of today. We cannot live a human life if we are not connected in our heart. Tomorrow I will be working to build the future. And in Japan, the 24 hr-ticket selling activity has started. Together with everyone, I sincerely wish to work to create our future all at once.
Thank you very much.
