Luminarie- Merry Christmas from Kobe Japan

"Luminarie" is Kobe's city- wide Light Sculpture- a
requiem for the victims of the Great Earthquake striking Kobe and Osaka on January 17, 1995.

Luminarie was presented in December, the same year as the earthquake.

The festival represents the revival of the city, dreams and hopes. I too find this year's end especially important as a time for reflection. I hope everyone finds peace this Christmas.- with love from Japan- olga regina

The Australian: Neo-geriatrics hold Japan in grip of silver crime wave [February 01, 2006]: "Takeshi Kitashiba recently christened 2006 the Year of the Neo-Geriatric in a Japanese magazine. 'Neo-geriatrics are those over 65 who are still fit, healthy and want to get more out of their lives,' he said. 'Without work, they'll be filled with anxiety and there's a likelihood they may turn to crime.'"
