I was was thrilled to welcome Mr Yukata Inoue today, for lunch at An Lanntair’s restaurant. He is currently visiting the University of Stirling to study Dementia Friendly Communities in Scotland. He is Emeritus Professor at Meikia University in Japan. He was accompanied by Mrs Hiroko Inoue.
They were both at the Life Changes Trust gathering in Perth.
Mr Inoue intends to write a book about Dementia Friendly Communities when he returns to Japan at the end of July.
Emeilin Collier from the NHS Remoage Project came along and Marion MacInnes from Alzheimer Scotland hosted us all (hostessed).
We spoke about similarities and differences between projects, between countries and we had fun conversations about the making of Miso and other traditional foods.
Before lunch, we looked in on the captivating Resoundings exhibit in the Gallery. These are the images. Hiroko is the lady in the shadows, experiencing the bells.
