She comes to Japan for her business every year, but it was a first time to visit Japan as a private travel.
She lives in Kassel which is located 600 km from the sea. That's why she came to Shimoda to be relaxed near the beach and the mountains.

When she checked-in I asked her job and she said that she is a staff of "Bärenreiter"! (This is a one of the largest publishers of classical music worldwide.)

I am a member of a chorus group in Shimoda called "Shimoda Chor Freude" and we will have a 30th anniversary concert next April and now we are practicing Mozart "Requiem".
And we are using the score of Bärenreiter!

Yes, she came to Pension Sakuray by accident!

It was amazing!!

I was really surprised to meet her and called a leader of our chorus group immediately and we were able to talk with her on the 2nd night.

The leader and the producer of our group were very excited with this experience.
