When the feast was in full swing, the star of the day took center stage. Through the panoramic window of the reception hall, all of us witnessed that SITC NAGOYA just started to make her own way, by jauntily gliding on the water of Kanmon Channel. Needless to say that every attendance wished the best luck to her ! [2006/08/08]
