How are you? There are a lot of businesspersons and officers at work in Sri Lanka though it is quiet and less traffic in town. I feel like I'm in holiday, too.
Thanks to you, we could enjoy many things with many customers. The first class Classical music artists in Sri Lanka got together and played beautiful tunes at Cafe Japan. We were pleased to be able to have a wonderful opportunity and moved by their music. Thank you Thai airways, Esmeralda and Coffee barista Mr. C. and the kind guests who visited and supported by donations on that day.

たくさんの方たちのサポート、特に、音楽関係者の皆様方のおかげで、カフェジャパンでミニコンサートを開くことができました。来客頂いた皆さまからも、寄付を頂き、また、タイ航空さん、エスメラルダさん、それから、コーヒー職人のCさんからもスポンサー協力を頂き、ありがと うございました。何より、音楽が素晴らしく、感動しました。小さいお店で、悪条件の中、演奏して下さったスリランカの一流音楽家の皆様に感謝申し上げま す。贅沢な時間を過ごす事ができて、楽しい夕べとなりました。

And we had a parcel with heart warmed cards from Japan. It was from Mmi and Mko who helped us and worked with us from the opening of Cafe Japan. They were young but professional cooks and they were very talented. Mmi is living in a southern island, Japan and Mko is teaching Yoga and Cooking at the school. I'm looking forward to seeing you someday.

それから、日本から嬉しい便りも届きました。カフェジャパンのオープン、立ち上げからずっと一緒に働いてくれたM美ちゃん とM子ちゃん二人から、10年のお祝いが届いたのです。中には、私たちが大好きな六花亭のチョコレートと雑誌や本が入っていました。そして、一番嬉しかっ たのは、二人からのメッセージカードでした。今は、それぞれ、日本に戻って、M美ちゃんは、石垣島で、M子ちゃんは、スリランカで勉強したヨガや料理を日 本でも続け、教室で教えています。二人とも、若いのに、料理がとても上手で(M美ちゃんはプロだったし)、何より、勉強熱心だったんです。色々助けて頂い たなあと有難く思っています。ハスの花を綺麗に活けてくれたり、美味しいお菓子やお料理も教えて頂きました。また、お会いできるのを楽しみにしています。 どうもありがとう。

It became the last though, I would like to say thanks to the regular customers who are visiting us and ordering Bento and food from us. THANK YOU!!

Oh, a customer who has ordered our lunch everyday 10years ago visits us every year with a lot of souvenirs. Thank you, too.

To All,
Wishing you a happy new year and looking forward to seeing you in the new year!


なんだか、閉店の挨拶みたいになってきましたが、来年も営業します。どうぞよろしくお願い申し上げます。 :>

Very nice. I hope to hear some music when I visit! On our visit to Moscow, we went to Cafe Margarita and some young Russians from the Tchaikovksy Conservatory came in and played some music. It was lovely.

Hi, Allen. It was lovely, too, the music at CJ. I love the Tchaikovsky music! You were so lucky and I will visit Cafe Margarita in Moscow!
