    On December 8, Caroline visited the Asagaya Base of JGSDF to observe the joint commanding exercise "Yama Sakura 67" with the US Army.
    I failed to catch as this was not official news as long as I remember.

    Additional video from the same place in Sapporo City.

    In 1962, a Japanese woman namely Tsukayo Matsumoto gave Caroline Japanese dolls.
    She now asks if anybody knows Tsukayo in Kitami City, far northern town from Sapporo, as she wants to state gratitude.

    This is a good story.

    Hello Shinpachi. Would there be any chance you could help me translate a Japanese Flag? I've seen your thorough work on the forums here before and could use your help. I tried making a post and uploading photos but it didn't turn out very well! haha. Could you message me your email address or reach out to me so I could send some photos? Thanks so much!!

    I have answered your question in your thread.
    Thanks for asking! :)

    **********************************

    The woman who gave dolls to Caroline through her father in 1962 has turned out to be Ms. Tsuyako Matsumoto, 92.
    She is still alive and lives in Kitami City.

    On Feb 12, Caroline visited USS George Washington in Yokosuka for observation together with Abe's wife Akie and members of a local NPO organization "US-Japan Link."
    Sound volume is too low to understand what they are talking about :(

    U.S. envoy Kennedy sends letter to thank Japanese woman for doll set gift

    TOKYO (Kyodo) -- U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy sent a letter Thursday to thank a 92-year-old woman from Kitami, Hokkaido Prefecture who gifted a set of traditional Japanese dolls decades ago that is now on display at the envoy's residence in Tokyo.

    The letter was delivered to Tsuyako Matsumoto, who now lives in a nursing home in Kitami, by JoEllen Gorg, principal officer at the U.S. Consulate General in Sapporo City, on behalf of Kenney, who had official duties elsewhere.

    Matsumoto sent the "hina" dolls to the ambassador's father, President John F. Kennedy, at the White House in 1962. She said she was inspired to give the gift after writing to President Kennedy one day and receiving back a letter expressing gratitude from a presidential secretary.

    The ambassador has kept the set since her childhood. The dolls are typically on display at Japanese homes for the March 3 Girls' Day festival.

    The sender was discovered after Kennedy solicited support from the news media to discover the origins of the gift when she visited Sapporo earlier this month.

    Video comes in.

    After preview, Abe greeted to participants "Today, we have seen a lot of wonderful exhibits here and I believe the most splendid one is Ambassador Caroline Kennedy's artwork which she painted when she was a child. Our country's history may be longer than the U.S. but our Public Record Office like this is only a few percent of theirs. I would like to make efforts to expand service more in the future".

    News arriving one after another lately :shock:

    On March 9, Caroline enjoyed Plum Festival at the Kairakuen Garden in Mito, Ibaraki Prefecture.
    As the spring comes, she looks more healthy and active.

    People say she looks younger than watching her on TV.
    Kids say she is cool.
    Prefectural government staff says she looks not necessarily in need of interpreters.
    and so on.....

    Japan Marks 4th Anniversary of Tsunami (AP)

    Japan on Wednesday marked the fourth anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami disaster that left nearly 19,000 people dead or missing, and badly damaged a nuclear power plant. (March 11)

    ****************
    As this ceremony was so long as one and half an hour with the speeches of Emperor, PM, other ministers, victims' families and inland guests, every local news station had failed to introduce Caroline's floral tribute on the altar and I have no way but use AP video.
