Helen Heller and Hachiko, Akita Dog Lecture

Helen Keller and Hachiko Exhibition preview Night was held on March 8th, the 83rd anniversary of Hachiko' s death. I gave a talk on Helen Keller and Hachiko's relation and Dr. Steven Takamatsu, the President of Akita Dog Preservation Society in the US gave a lecture on Akita dogs. He brought three Akita dogs and the participants pet the dogs and took pictures with them.The producer of the Hollywood movie "Hachi. A dog's tale", Vicki Shigekuni-Wong joined us. I enjoyed talking about Hachiko with her! It was a wonderful event to share the story of Hachiko with many people in Los Angeles area.
