I would like to express my gratitude to everyone at JAL Mileage Bank and all the JMB members. Thanks to your kindness, we were able to take a trip to Okinawa.
My workplace is located only 2km from the coast and incurred damage from the tsunami. We were in the process of bringing our lives back to normal when we received this wonderful gift.
For our trip, my husband, my first-grade daughter, and I went to Okinawa. The three of us love Okinawa and often visited there before the earthquake-tsunami. This latest trip was made in the middle of summer, and so we were able to enjoy a variety of water-related activities including snorkeling and a visit to the pool.
This year, we are celebrating our daughter's Japanese rite of passage ceremony. In this connection, we also had her photo taken at a photo studio, wearing traditional Okinawan clothing. Our daughter was able to make many special memories on our trip and proudly talked about her experiences with her friends at school.
Thank you for this wonderful opportunity that was made possible through your project.

To everyone at JAL,
Thank you for giving us the miles. Okinawa was so much fun.
I told my friends at school that we went to Okinawa. They asked me what we ate.
The ocean was pretty. We found a lot of sea shells there. There was even a sea shell shaped like a mango pudding and a sea shell shaped like a plate.
We went to the beach and rode a banana boat and went snorkeling. I played with the toys in the ocean. We had Okinawan fish and soft chewy tofu to eat. I ate until I was full. We stayed at 3 hotels. We also went to the pool. We had a great time. Mommy and daddy and I really like Okinawa.
At Churaumi Aquarium, we stamped my "stamp rally" sheet with a lot of stamps. It was really fun.
Thank you for giving us the miles. We really had a lot of fun.
