Golden Week is over and Mother’s Day is upon us here in Japan. This year many people around the world are wondering how to celebrate Mother’s Day when they cannot meet their mum in person, nor take her out to a nice restaurant and treat her to a meal. Here at AFWJ many of us are no stranger to being far away from our mums on Mother’s Day, having settled in Japan, away from our home countries. Many of us also have children who have taken after their mums and have settled down somewhere else. While it can be hard to be away from loved ones on special days, there are still ways to connect and celebrate. Louise George Kittaka has gathered some great tips on how to celebrate Mother’s Day during a pandemic and shared them in The Japan Times. Be on the lookout for advice from a couple of our members: Gloria Bauer Ishida and Chriss Macpherson! Click on the link to check it out:
