And now I'm back at the hostel about to call it a night but first trying Mitake, which is a brand of Sweet Potato ...
... not allow the letters to be sent, they entrusted them to the woman. After the war, she made them available to the museum. They are now one of the few exhibits in English at the museum. They are tender, loving and heart-breaking.
