Search for Miyuki Hama in Kobe Suma-ku

Hi! I am missing my long time pen pal and friend Miyuki Hama. We have exchanged letters and gifts and phone calls during the 1970s and 1980s. She was born April 22, 1961 (or 1962), and her address in the early 80s was in Suma Ku, 2-41 Tomogaoka, Kobe. She used to be student at Noda Senior High School in Kobe. If you have any idea where she is, please reply to my ad. Thank you so much!

According to google street view, the resident family name that you mentioned is "Hama". so she or her relatives may still live in there.

I can check for you next week. I just called the school to see if maybe someone there could help because they will have her on record somewhere. The man I spoke with asked me to call back next week. That school is not too far from where I work and I am fairly free these days so maybe I can help you find her.

I will let you know more next week.

Can you send me your info in a private message so then I have more to give the school than "some person on the internet is looking for Miyuki Hama." The man I spoke to tonight was a little put off by my request. :)

Hirano-san, I hope you are fine and suffered no damage due to earthquake!

You replied my search for Miyuki Hama in Kobe. I only saw your message right now. I mistakenly thought I would be alerted by email, and since I was not, I thought I not no reply on my search. But today I saw your message. Yes, that is exactly the house 2-41 Tomogaoka in Kobe Suma-Ku. I have an old photo of my lost friend in front of that gate. And the family name on the plate is still the same. However if I dial the old telephone number which I still have (7920811 in Kobe) I can an old man who seems to be somewhat angry. And I cant understand him. My letters to that address seem to arrive (I dont get them back), but I get no answer.

Have you got any idea what I could do?

I thank you so much for your efforts. This is very kind of you.

With all the best greetings from Germany

Ralf
