(Japanese) The Japanese-Portuguese dictionary. There’s two volumes of this dictionary, and the man who created this dictionary, Dr. Yoshiharu Noda, was in town, in Armonia, for five years. He went back to Japan two to three times during those five years, but set his base down over here, and worked on completing the dictionary. This Dr. Noda was 80 years old at that time, but he was extremely healthy, and he dedicated every single day to creating this dictionary. Watching the way he worked was humbling, and I was able to see the great amount of time and effort put into his work.
