件名：Thank you letter from Kyoko ————————— Dear Mr. and Mrs. Cosner and family,
I got back home safe the day before yesterday. Thank you so much again for letting me stay with you. I really had a great time staying with you. My parents were so happy to see me and hear all about my experience. They send their best regards to all of you. I’ll go back to my school next week. I believe my English has improved a lot. I am happy to see my friends there again but I do miss you all. Again thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality.
I hope you are well. Spring is coming in Japan. Japanese people love cherry blossoms. There are a lot of cherry blossom viewing spots all over the country. One of the pleasures of life among us is to hold a drinking party in a grove of cherry trees in full bloom. I am attaching the pictures I took in the park near my house.
I hope you are doing well. I went on a trip to Kyoto last week. Kyoto is one of the ancient capitals of Japan. There are a lot of beautiful gardens, temples, and shrines there. Kyoto is also known as famous spots for autumn leaves. I saw a beautiful view there. I want you to see it someday in Japan.
I hope all is well with you. My high school life is over and I had the graduation ceremony last week. I will start college in April. I will study economics in college. I am looking forward to my new life!

How have you been? It’s been a while since I wrote to you last. Today, I have a big news! I got married to Ken last year.
What is more our first child was born last month. I named her “Sachi”. It means “Happy”. I want to make such a happy family full of smiles like you.
I hope you have been very well. My grand father turned 88 years old the other day. the number “8” is considered to be good luck in Japan. He is the happiest guy in the world! Please take care of yourself and have fun.
