As part of its activities, the information center sponsors a coffee hour discussion group every second Wednesday of the month from 2 to 4 pm, with invited guests giving a presentation from their area of expertise or experience. The guest for June is Ms. Denise Sato, who will be talking on the theme of international marriages. She will be speaking from her own experience of 20 years of marriage to a Japanese doctor, Yuukichi Sato, head of the Tsuwa Hospital. She is the mother of 2 children and is presently working as an English instructor at Takezono High School.
She will be speaking about the problem areas especially experienced in international marriages ?? especially the differences in cultures and values, but also the special joys experienced in the mutual adaptation to and respect shown for the cultures of both partners. Likewise, she will be sharing the secrets she has learned towards making a successful international marriage.
As always, translation back and forth between English and Japanese will be provided as needed depending on the participants. English, however, is the primary medium of communication.
