More Dinner with Shingo Yamamoto 7/18/12

 These were the three young people Yamamoto-san raced up the rope.
 Another fan.
 One of the coaches.
 A gift from Tiger.
 Tiger also gave him a mini-poster of his Sasuke pics and a picture of Shingo the Tiger.
 Yamamoto-san and I both had tempura.
 Carol and Reina shared this colorful box.
My gift to Yamamoto-san.

 His gift to me, autographed :-)
 Yamamoto-san is the only one allowed to wear the number 1 :-)

Awesome pictures! Thank you so much for giving Yamamoto-san my gift for him. I'm so glad he liked the T-Shirt. I downloaded those two pictures and uploaded them onto my site on Multiply.

That looked like so much fun! I'm so happy that trip worked out! He looks like a riot to hang out with.

He really was a lot of fun to hang out with. He's just as he seems on tv. Tiger, he loved your gifts - the t-shirt and the photos :-)

The little girl who climbed against Shingo just became the under 12 Japan champion! Her name is Yuna Endo! We have hopes for her at the 2020 Olympics.

Chaki - how exciting. Keep us posted on how Yuna's career is advancing.
