There are things they will never forget such as the shirt with Hanshi Kuwahara's calligraphy of Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan, plus of course the TENUGUI HACHIMAKI as special honour of Sanka Sho (Participation Award) with calligraphy written by Sosai (Governor of DNBK) reading KO MYO HEN JO and signed by Higashifushimi, Jigo, Shorenin Abbot Emeritus.

The translation: "Bright Light Shines Throughout the World"
Interpretation: Each individual can become the light of hope in this world. It is like the light of Buddha which shines in all things.

We all enjoyed the Tenugui calligraphy by Sosai and will keep it as a special memory of this America Butoku Sai and Gasshuku...
