As I mentioned in the page of "My Personal Information", I visited Hawaii and attend the summer N.I.C.E. (New Intensive Courses in English) program at the University of Hawaii for a month (July 25. 1997 - August 25. 1997). It was one of the supplementary awards for the grand prize winner of the 28th Mayor of Honolulu All Japan ECC English Oratorical Contest held in September 1996. I want to show you our experiences in Hawaii. Please CLICK any HYPER LINK in the table shown below. Then you can find out further information with some pictures. I suspect that you may find some strange words in it. They would be connected with Amateur (HAM) Radio, my hobby. If you are not interested in it, please skip these words. If you can take a look, I'll appreciate it. Anyway, I enjoyed study and other things very much during the period of my stay. For example, swimming, shopping, getting suntan, ham radio, etc.

*Events without HYPER LINK means "Under Constructions" or "No Plan to give further information". Sorry.
