Donald Richie celebrates 81st birthday
Donald Richie celebrated his 81st birthday among friends and fans in Tokyo with a reading from his recent book, The Japan Journals: 1947-2004.
Shogo Oketani and Leza Lowitz, authors of several books including Designing with Kanji, hosted Mr. Richie at their Sun and Moon Yoga Studio on April 16. Pictured with Leza is Koichi Mori, who baked the birthday cakes.
And no, there aren't 81 candles on that cake!
