Within the first month of her arrival in Japan in 1989, Chris Ishikawa joined the Yokohama International Women's Club.She was a foreign bride then, living in a Japanese neighborhood, and feeling lonely.She said: "I read a writeup in a local newspaper about YIWC's outing to an antiques dealer.I went along, and at once met women who became my very good friends.I wanted to do something, and I liked the idea of helping people in YIWC's charity programs."Chris has been an active club member ever since that first time, accepting office and currently holding two positions on the board.Chris studied Japanese before she came."Then I found the best way of really learning was just going and speaking to Japanese people," she said."This is a service which provides foreigners with information about the area," Chris said."I remember what it was like when I first came here, and want to make things easier for newcomers."She also undertakes English teaching.From the beginning, Chris found there were "many beautiful aspects to this country."Enamored of Japanese art, she made "washi" paper craft one of her specialities.She called it "romance with washi paper."Then, for YIWC, she conceived the idea of producing a cookbook called "Food for Furoshiki."She collected appropriate recipes covering "food that could be prepared and cooked at home, put into containers, then carried away, reheated and served in someone else's home."In publishing the cookbook, YIWC underlined its principle of women getting to know each other and building friendships."I have many hobbies," Chris said."The club's craft group has been making things for the bazaar, which of course Santa will visit," Chris said.
