Rolling Pin Diplomacy

Rolling Pin Diplomacy

This is  a photo from the first Japan-America Soba Summit, held at the Keio Dept. Hotel. I was befriended by the President of the Keio Dept. Store, Mr. Kawamura, who requested of one of my customers to meet. A newspaper article described out meeting as "Rolling   Pin Diplomacy",  (I had presented him with a rolling pin at our first meeting). This led gradually to hosting a soba party at the Hotel with the Presidents guests coming in numbers.
