While saying good bye to Kyoko Koike and Urara Suzuki, two dedicated staffers who have served the foreign community for the past few years, the Tsukuba Information Center welcomes two new "information coordinators", Ms. Keiko Nishikawa and Ms. Machiko Nemoto. The two other staff members, director Sadanobu Kawasaki and his assistant Yoshiichi Tada remain from the former staff.
Keiko Nishikawa is a native of Makabe and still resides there, making the 40 minute commute daily into Tsukuba. She has travelled widely, including trips to China, Taiwan and Great Britain. She has an interesting hobby, which is playing hand drums, such as the bongo. In fact, she is hoping to find persons from other countries who can share with her new rhythms and styles. Machiko Nemoto was born and raised right here in Tsukuba, and so her commute is much shorter. She is a tennis fan and is looking for new tennis partners. Both women are young, beautiful and single.
