Ive lost many good friends since Ive lived in Tokyo, its all part of ex-pat lifestyle and something you get accustomed to. That said, we recently said goodbye to Kumar - who is one of the old-timers and one of only a handful Ive known since my arrival in Tokyo. Kumar has been my best friend here, always willing to help others, and never critical. He is moving on out of love and everyone wishes him well. Sayonara buddy
