Why would you like to join?

Off and on since 1972, I lived 26 years in Japan: three years each in Tokyo and Okinawa, and 20 years in Aomori Ken no Misawa-shi. However, due to long periods of absence from Japan in last 10 years, I feel like I'm losing my connection with my second home. I like to begin a process of returning to a life's passion.
