It is with great sadness that we farewell Consul General of Japan in Perth Tatsuo Hirayama
and his wife Sachiko.

Hirayama san and Sachiko have been tremendous ambassadors for Japan in WA in the two
years they have been here, touching so many people and creating so many opportunities to
foster Australian and Japanese relations in WA.

In particular, the connection with RSLWA (facilitated by AJSWA) to enable the Japanese
Government representation in Broome for the 75 th Anniversary of the Air Raid Memorial of
the bombing of Broome.

AJSWA wish you well in your next posting and will look to work equally as well with the
incoming Consul General of Japan in Perth.
