It has been missing his master.
Mr. T in charge of this machine has taken a leave of absence for a long now because of his physical conditions.
It’s been a while since a cardboard sign representing his absence was put on the table.
In spite of our wish, there has been no sign of recovery. And finally, he retired today.
He has been working for 47 years just for ISOWA.
We missed him while he was out, and we are really going to miss him even more.
Since it was his last day as our member, he came by to see me. However I had to keep him waiting long because at that time I had a visitor.
If I had known that, I would’ve stepped out for a little while.
He lives in Seki, Gifu prefecture. He commuted 40 km each way for almost 50 years.
He had the longest commute times in ISOWA for a long time.
I asked him to take a photo together, but he was so shy that there’s no photo of us.
So I’ll use this one on the direction board beside the machine instead.
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication.
We hope you will get better soon!
