The Reception of Curling Games in Sapporo!


by Kazu

The curling teams from Alberta, Canada were headed by my friends Mr. Scott Fraser and Ms. Brenda Asmussen. They are so nice guys. 
 Curling was introduced to Hokkaido by Alberta, the Sister-state of Hokkaido and then conveyed to Heilongjiang, China.
Now the curling teams of Hokkaido, Alberta and Heilongjiang show good games on the worldwide stages. What successful trilateral relationships we established !

Hokkaido-Alberta-Heilongjiang, Friends !


by Kazu

The National Curling Team of Canada visited Sapporo in August of 2016 to win the games of Sapporo Curling Classic of that year.
All the members are from Alberta that established the Sister-state relationship with Hokkaido in 1980. The Albertan team was the national team at that time.
Why did they join the game in the next year of our anniversary year ? Because 2016 was the 30 anniversary year of the friendship affiliation between Hokkaido and Heilongjiang, China.

So many people who recognize the importance of the relationship between the USA and Japan gathered every year.
Rock-solid bond between the people of the countries may keep the world stable even if they have to share so sad story in the past.
I hope that the world where all the people trust, love each other and make dreams come true. Besides, who do you think is this beautiful lady ?
