to Prime Minister Abe
Mr. Kadono sent this photo and letter to President Eisenhower's grandson, Professor Eisenhower, while sending the same to the Trump administration's White House. This led to Prime Minister Abe meeting with Professor Eisenhower's sister Mary at the White House when he visited the United States. (As you know, Prime Minister Abe is the grandson of Prime Minister Kishi.) Then, Prime Minister Abe invited Mrs. Mary Eisenhower to the ceremony to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Japan-US Security Treaty.
A single photo and letter shows a story that connects the leaders of Japan and the United States.
