Lost Student ID Card Letter

Dear School Principal,

I would like to report my student ID with student number #728021 missing. I lost it inside the campus last Tuesday. I would like to request for a replacement as soon as possible, also a temporary ID pass so I can have access to the school premises and student services.

Thank you very much,
Idris Moss

Hope Everyone is Safe Letter

Dear Chris,

I heard a huge tree broke off from its roots and fell into your roof. Hope everyone is safe! A fallen tree crashing into yard happened a couple of years ago too, no one was hurt! Those old trees really need to be checked by the council.

Stay safe,

Lost ID: Request for New Identity Card Letter

Lost your ID? Get a new one fast:

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you regarding my identity card which I lost a few days ago traveling home on the metro.

I'm facing a lot of difficulty right now without my ID. I don;t have access to regular services and entering and leaving the premises takes time. I would like to request for a new identity card or security clearance at the latest.

I would like to thank you in advance for any help you may extend to me.

Thank you,
Dixon Chase

Informing Family of Accident Letter

Dear Family,

My sister got into a bad car accident a few days ago, she's in serious but in stable condition. We are hoping to get her chest tube remove in the next 3 days, she still needs a ventilator for breathing and feeding tubes on her gut. Infection has been ruled out. We're taking each news day by day, we are hoping you could help out Maggie by praying for her. My mother really needs your support right now.
Drop a line :)

In love and kindness,

Cultural Letter

Hello All,

I am very much delighted to come back to Thailand to serve as the Director-General of the Japan Foundation, Bangkok, following my past duty as the Assistant Director of the same office from 1999 – 2004.

My absence in a twelve-year cycle is long enough to feel myself as a stranger in Thailand and I need to devote myself to relearn Thai language as well as its arts and culture so that I can be welcomed to join the wonderful community again.

I sense, during my absence, that the “contemporariness” in Thailand has been drastically changed and it is reflected onto a plethora of artistic practices and academic endeavors by promising Thai artists, creators and scholars. I do hope to catch up such vivid and sharp senses of contemporariness by exploring as many performances, exhibitions, film screenings, discussions and symposia as possible in Thailand, and hope to introduce Japanese cutting-edge arts and ideas by return for distinguished Thai partners and friends.

Working for Japanese-language education as well as Japan studies is also one of my most anticipated activities in Thailand. The boom of Thai tourism visiting Japan favors our activities in this field. I sincerely hope that we can provide efficient supports and services, in cooperation with Japanese language / Japan experts and Nihongo Partners, for those who are interested in Japanese language, as well as in academic pursuits on Japan, effectively associated with respected fellow partners and organizations.

I am looking forward to meeting you to enhance our bilateral relations together in cultural affairs very soon.

Norihiko Yoshioka
The Japan Foundation, Bangkok
