On January 4 2013, during the Tea Ceremony seminar at Clerlande, we have celebrated together Nojiri sensei's 77th birthday (kiju, 喜寿). Thierry Sōwa (宗@輪ヨ) Geerinckx offered her a bowl of tea following the "kinin date" ceremony, assisted (hanto) by Chantal Sōgyoku (宗@玉ハ) Verdoodt. Nojiri sensei received an album containing pictures covering her career as a tea master in Europe.
