“Godfather finally met with his godchild”
From 8th to 11th of February friends of mine from Kaohsiung Taiwan came to Kyoto Japan. And finally I who is “Godfather of my friend child” met 小羊 (little lamb- nickname of kid) at his friend’s restaurant named Monk where is located in Philosopher’s Path (哲学の道) Kyoto Japan.
Godfather, Godmother generally is traditional Christianity culture at western country which is
–Male or Female present at the christening of a baby who promises to help raise the child in a Christian manner; a godparent who sponsors the baptism of a child.

Moreover in Taiwan they have similar tradition which is not related with Christianity but when people was blessed with a new life “Baby”, for close people, friend or people confers tremendous benefits, and whom would be able to take care the kids as well as parents do, parents ask them to become GODPARENTS. –
When the people receive the proposal, people have strong connection as well as real family, and gives kids full of opportunity to learn so many things for their bright future.
It is amazingly beautiful culture that nowadays people have been forgetting the connection with others. – Being selfish following materialism & individualism.
But in my opinion human relations would be like past time, all of adult people who lives in a same community, all together take care the young generation teaching the sense of humanity, through daily life, and elder kids takes care the younger one learning what is the way of cooperativeness, and the way of community.
It was my huge pleasure to be my Taiwanese friends new born baby “小羊“ (little lamb)’s Godfather.
小羊 （little lamb） was adorably cute and she recognized me and smiled me from the first encounter.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude & appreciation my Taiwanese friends for coming to Japan, and give me an opportunity to be your 小羊’godfather.
**Lastly I do also want to my express my sincere thanks and appreciation my old friend “Imai”-kun for his wonderful hospitality at his new restaurant named “Monk”. & I do appreciate people who visited the restaurant at same time for their kindness and wonderful friendship.
