Nihon Kendo Magazine article on Shimpukan dojo

The dojo I attend was in the latest (2008:9) Japan Kendo magazine. Unfortunately it's in Japanese (duh), but Kotomi tells me that the article is about saving old dojos (probably in regard to the demolishing of Noma dojo last year).

You can see a photo of the petition to save the dojo... all my teachers' names are on it :)

I have been told by one of the older sensei that the dojo (which is 90 years old) is a bit of a holy place for kendo travellers.
