Happy New Year!
Having been assigned to this post the year before last, I will see my second New Year’s Day here in Denver this year. I offer my greetings to you while looking out from the windows of our Consulate office at the Rockies that have turned white from the end of the year snowfall.
This last year, I have been able to relay to the American people of the continuing efforts of Japan, which is working towards reconstruction from the devastation of the Great East Japan Earthquake. We have worked hard towards our goal to strengthen the bonds between Japan and the United States through activities like the Centennial celebration of the Gift of Cherry Blossom Trees to the U.S., and by building friendly relationships with the different communities in the region. Our activities are referred on our homepage, but the success of these events are due to the great cooperation from the many communities, including Japanese business and expats as well as the Japanese American communities, in the cities of our four-state jurisdiction that includes Denver, Colorado Springs, Salt Lake City and Albuquerque. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to them.
Along with providing top level consular services to the Japanese community, our essential role is to continue to develop the relationship between Japan and the United States. Our Consulate office hopes to fulfill this important role through strengthening the relationship of my country with the Rocky Mountain region. In particular, there are plans to begin a new non-stop flight between Denver International Airport and Tokyo International Airport this spring that will bring these regions even closer. Through expanding economic and cultural exchanges, we expect that there will be even more coming and going between our two countries and I intend to work to assist those activities.
I would appreciate your continued kind cooperation this year.
