Dredging through some old photos and found this! More that 30 years ago during my first visit to Iwama Japan.
Back then I did not bother much taking photos, just figured I'd remember all that went on. Looking back at that now with some regret, thought I do remember this dojo holiday with Saito Morihiro sensei, his wife and some of the regular Iwama deshi. At that time the only uchi deshi there was Maeda (directly below me holding child) and me. We were all on a weekend away at a mountain onsen, can't remember the location, but I remember we had fun sitting in the onsen at night surrounded by snow and the stars above.
