I attended my first discussion meeting in 1989 with my mother who received gohonzon in 1990. I have been a SGI UK member since 1994.
Last year November (2009) I went on my first trip to Japan and I must add that I travelled on my own. It was amazing trip I went from Tokyo then travel South to Okayama & Nishiawakura to visit and stay with friends from the UK then went to Kyushu to visit another UK friend. I would like to encourage anyone who hasn't been make the causes to go. I visited Kaikan's in the different places I visited.I also went to Shinanomachi a number of times during my visit, there I went to the Min-On Music Museum, the Internationl Women's Centre( beautiful centre and amazing womens' division who look after it) and Joesi Toda International centre.
I have just moved to the women's division after spending nearly 16 years as a member & a leader in faith in the Young women's division what great training I have had!
