Aloha, I am writing to hopefully find a pen pal in Japan that can read and write English well enough to communicate with me through email.  I am a blind 50-year old Japanese-American guy living in Hawaii, and am a volunteer Braille, cooking and ukulele teacher at a local vocational rehabilitation center for the blind.  I am hoping to learn Japanese and to one day go on a sake and onsen tour in Japan.  If anyone is interested in corresponding , could you please forward my name and email address to them? Warm Mahalo.
