Engures Music and Art School — Engures Mūzikas un mākslas skolas

As the Honorary Consul of Latvia in Okinawa, Onaga Yoshimitsu Kaichō scheduled a visit to "Engures Mūzikas un mākslas skolas", a Latvian Music and Art school, to present a special gift to the students: a tenor saxophone! The school principal, teachers and students greeted Onaga Kaichō. Some of the students performed for the occasion, and the big surprise was that Onaga Kaichō also performed for the crowd. Afterwards the school principal also presented some gifts to Onaga Kaichō.
