Diplomat to return to Japan

Dawn Gibson
Friday, February 21, 2014

AFTER serving in Fiji for just over two years, the now-former ambassador of Japan Eiichi Oshima officially completed his term on Monday evening.

At a farewell reception hosted at his Tamavua home, Mr Oshima said two years was not long enough.

"It is amazing how time flies and we feel sad to leave this beautiful country within a relatively short period of time," he said on the evening.

"When I initially came to Fiji, the South Pacific region was totally new to me and now, after spending two years here, I have got to understand the meaning of 'Pacific way' as well as the 'bula spirit'."

He said he and his wife Kyoko would leave Fiji for Japan next week and it would probably be his last posting.

"Since I have been accredited to five countries, I might have had more experiences as an ambassador compared with my other colleagues," he said.
