Los Altos residents Dave and Dee Gustavson, members of the San Francisco Bay Area Friendship Force Club, recently visited the home of Kishiko Otaki of Sapporo, Japan, whom they hosted in Los Altos last October.
The Gustavsons were among 21 Bay Area members the Sapporo Friendship Force Club hosted in June. On the visit, the Bay Area contingent wore kimonos, sampled Japanese specialties, rode the bullet train and visited museums and flower shows. Sapporo club members also introduced their visitors to cultural activities, including origami, ikebana, calligraphy and a Japanese tea ceremony.
