    Caroline joined Bill Clinton's speech at Waseda University in Tokyo yesterday.
    Her schedule doesn't seem changed so much since the threat by phone last month but she did not appear at Haneda Airport to see Michelle Obama last evening.

    Wow. Caroline visited Kyoto together with Michelle today! :shock:
    I should have been there with my camera :(

    A Kyoto citizen's video
    "Cool parade!", "Which car?", "I don't know", "I can't see...", "You can't", "Don't push me!" etc

    U.S. envoy attends 100th anniversary tree gift ceremony in Tokyo

    TOKYO (Kyodo) -- U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy attended a ceremony at a high school in Tokyo on Friday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the gift to Japan of dogwood trees by the United States.

    A total of 40 such trees were presented in 1915 as a return gift to Japan after Tokyo gave 3,000 cherry trees to Washington in 1912. Of the total, only one is left today at Tokyo Metropolitan Engei High School. The typical lifespan of a dogwood tree is about 80 years.

    As the ambassador planted a tree out of 26 newly gifted dogwoods by the United States-Japan Bridging Foundation to the high school, she said the trees will connect both countries.

    Last year, Kennedy also took part in a tree planting ceremony at Ise Shrine as part of a series of activities celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the gift of the 3,000 cherry trees.

    The cherry trees were sent by then Tokyo Mayor Yukio Ozaki. The growing number of cherry trees planted along the Tidal Basin along the Potomac River has become a symbol of friendship between the two countries.

    U.S. Ambassador Kennedy visits Hiroshima peace museum

    HIROSHIMA -- U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy paid a visit to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum on April 17 for the second time -- the first visit as a U.S. official since she assumed the position in 2013.

    Ambassador Kennedy visited the museum in 1978 when she accompanied her uncle Senator Edward Kennedy. She said during a speech on April 17 that she was honored to come back to Hiroshima, the city to which she had visited when she came to Japan for the first time, and that she has been inspired by the city ever since. Before visiting the museum, Ambassador Kennedy offered a flower wreath and bowed before the memorial cenotaph for the Hiroshima atomic bomb victims, located at Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima.

    She toured the museum with Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation chair Yasuyoshi Komizo as a guide, observing exhibits including personal belongings of the A-bomb victims. She signed the visitors' book with comments saying that she appreciates the leadership of the people of Hiroshima and their moral courage. She then planted a flowering dogwood tree -- a symbol of Japan-U.S. friendship -- at the park.

    Following Hiroshima, Caroline and Rose joined the memorial ceremony in Nagasaki today but main news had become the speech battle between Mayor of Nagasaki Taue and Prime Minister Abe.
    Taue showed his concern about Abe's recent security bill to deploy JSDF troops in overseas to support U.S. military action if it might violate our constitutional idea for the peace. Abe answered his security policy was necessary to contribute to the global peace. Sorry for no images of Caroline and Rose in the video. This is unusual.

    Thanks for your follow-up, Karl.
    There could be Harry Truman's grandson too.
    Media missed a great chance to catch him.

    On Sept 12, US Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy hosted a promotion event for Japanese students who are interested in studying abroad in the United States.
    Charlotte Kate Fox, a US actress who is popular with Japanese youths, also encouraged them.

    Caroline also participated the "Tour de Tohoku" to commemorate the tsunami victims this year too for her 2nd time since last year on Sept 13 today.
