The arrival ceremony was held on April 21. Hiro and Doug sailed dinghies with the local high-school students and children, then enjoyed delicious tonjiru stew cooked by the parents.

After lunch, there were celebratory speeches given by the Mayor of Iwaki City, Mr. Shimizu, the Parliament Member of Fukushima Prefecture, Mr. Sakamoto, the Head of Second Regional Coast Guard Headquarter, Mr. Oodachi, and the Principal of Iwaki Kaisei High-School, Mr. Matsumoto.

Kuriyama-san, a blind musician, performed his original songs, “Dream Weaver” and “Real Victory” to celebrate Hiro and Doug’s achievement.

Then, something Hiro and Doug did not expect happened. They got to meet the yellow handkerchief designer, Himeka’s family. They got to give them the handkerchief to her father and he gave the new ones back to them.
