I was born and lived until 6 years old in Tokyo, then my father was ordered by his employer to work in Sendai, we moved there. and I lived there for 30 years. I studied and worked for a few years in Tohoku University in Sendai.
My mother died when I was a student in Univ. When I got a job in the Univ. where I had studied, my father moved to Tokyo and started his new job. It was 25 years ago.
My father died too, 6 years ago. And 6 months ago a big earthquake assaulted my hometown. But it is being recovered at an amazing speed.
This is the background of today, when I visited the grave where my parents sleep. I don’t know if Sendai is a lucky place for me or not, but it’s sure, I could never forget it as my hometown.
