Since the age of 68 Mrs. Kawamoto has been seriously interested in photography and has travelled and experienced 10 countries of the world. But Mongolia with its vast land and nomadic people has attracted her mostly amongst other countries she has visited. Mrs. Kawamoto has been suffering from Meniere’s disease for the last three years. However, Mrs. Kawamoto is not able to travel long distances because of her illness but she has decided to release the “Mongolia-nomadic people” photo album
wishing she would be able to visit Mongolia again one day.

We are grateful to Mrs. Kawamoto for introducing Mongolia
to the Japanese people through the newly released album and hope that she will recover from her illness very soon and we warmly welcome her to our country again!
