Lucky Us!

On the evening of 7th June at the Narita airport, we found Taka, Ellen and Taka’s daughter and son at the snack stand. It was a wonderful encounter! Taka and Ellen were to return to Maui and Frank and I were to return to LAX. We share with you our joyful occasion at Narita airport! Aloha.
