We’ve finally met Tom’s Japanese 'mum'. Seiko and her husband have taken Tom under their wings and have helped him in so many ways with practical help, advice, support and excellent Japanese food. He is very fortunate to have met such kind and generous people, and we are grateful to them for looking after him so well.
Tom called in to borrow a strimmer to cut his lawn. They jumped into their van and appeared a few minutes later to cut the lawn and take away the cuttings.
Tom first met Seiko in the supermarket just after he arrived in Japan. She insisted that he have dinner with them and even came to pick him up.
Kindness and generosity doesn’t have national borders…
