March 20, 2003: Jiyu Gakuen Exhibit in Galleria
Tea room Galleria ARTS&TEA stands just next to Ibo riverbank across Tatsuno bridge.
This is one of my dear old places as I was born around here and grown up.
|An exhibition of Jiyu Gakuen, an unusual private school, is being held here.|
|The lovely poster was painted by a student from the house.
The spacious lawn is in the center of the picture. Jiyu Gakuen is my dear old place because my son graduated the school 15 years ago.
