Raccoonkai in Nagoya

On July 10, 2009, lunchtime, a RaccoonKai in Nagoya was held a year after the last one at the Rinka Chinese Restaurant at the 18th floor of the Nagoya Marriott Associa Hotel above the Nagoya Station. Participating were Hu Jie (1998 Raccoon), Liang Xingguo (2001 Raccoon) and his wife Li Ling and daughter Shin-i, Ranjana Mukhopadhyaya (2002 Raccoon), and Itsuko Atsumi (AISF Rijicho), Noriko Iwasaki (AISF Trustee), Junko Imanishi (AISF Director), the three of whom were visiting Nagoya for another meeting. Everyone seemed to have adjusted well to living in Nagoya but from fall, Ranjana-san will be returning for her alma mater, Delhi University (East Asian Research Section) to take up a teaching position, so we had a send off party as well. Everyone, let’s go to New Delhi next year!
