From Team A to Team B バトンを渡す

Today, Team A will go back home. チームAの皆さん、お疲れ様でした。Thank you for your great works! As I take back to Sendai (our meeting place) and bring the other half of Team B, Team B will do three events today. チームAとBが交代している間に、チームBの先発隊は3つのイベントを行います。

Tanohata event 田野畑村にて

This place has almost no outside aid. Our visiting here touched their heart. One woman said, “I am sorry for debris that cause trouble for American people”.
