Before the meeting, Board Members Harihar, Guna Raj and Laxman shared about their Japan visit. All three members were delighted to attend this program. They were very happy and thankful to all PEJ and Pax IV Hyper members for their hospitality and caring. Harihar who led Nepalese delegates reported that they had done their level best in enhancing the relationship between PEJ and PEN as well as Pax IV Hyper and PEN.

They could present a true picture of Pax Earth’s educational and environmental activities of Kavrepalanchok at the time of a courtesy call to Shoyu Club. As per them, all three high dignitaries of Shoyu Club were quite impressed with Pax Earth’s activities. Apparently, Harihar, Guna Raj and Laxman are hopeful that Shoyu Club will continue to support in Pax Earth’s efforts.

They were quite impressed with the Japanese people who always respect and follow the system, and are self-disciplined. They termed self-discipline, hard work and dedication of the Japanese people as the main reasons behind what Japan is today. They felt that these are the main things which Nepal should learn and practice here in Nepal. All three members wholeheartedly thank PEJ President Dr. Soko Aoki for all the efforts, supports and helps without which they could just dream of visiting Japan.
