We had visited watanabe-san, a friend of mama at kitano station, 1 hour 15 minutes from our house in ishikawadai. We had lunch at sushi-ya and after took break at their house, we visited daigaku seminar house, the japan home town for mama. It does change a lot with a new sakura-kan and renovations here and there.
Thank you watanabe-san for the lunch and everything. Do hope to see you again in near future.
