Husband plants thousands of flowers around his home to make his blind wife happy
In Miyazaki Prefecture love is in the air.Japan may be well known for its cherry blossom, but in Miyazaki Prefecture people flock to see a different floral spectacle – mostly because of the love story behind it. Toshiyuki and Yasuko Kuroki, who have been married for 30 years, planned to retire and travel together after many years running their dairy farm. However, the couple took a hard blow after Mrs Kuroki lost her vision due to diabetes. Feeling devastated at the prospect of a life without sight, Mrs Kuroki shut herself away from the world in her home. But Mr Kuroki hatched a plan to help his wife find happiness again. After discovering a single pink shibazakura flower in their garden, the devoted husband decided to plant the bloom in its thousands around their home. Mr Kuroki believed that while his wife may not be able to see the striking scene, she would be able to smell the flowers’ beautiful scent. He also hoped his garden would attract a visitor or two each day, which would encourage his wife to be more social. More than a decade after the first seeds were planted, the flowers bloom in abundance, drawing up to 7000 people a day in spring time. Visitors continue to say Mrs Kuroki greets them upon arrival with a big welcoming smile on her face. Cue: happy tears.

Muhammad Islah Busakorn is a member of IBQS who lives in Chiengmai, Thailand. Here he is holding a braille Quran from Alfitrah Foundation, another member of IBQS.
Islah is a teacher and travels around Thailand to teach Quran. Here is a report of his recent trip. Alhamdu Lillah, this is a little report that I wrote concerning my trip experiences to Hadyai. It was sometime ago when I went to Hadyai to start up a Braille Qur'aan education system for the blind over there and with the help of Allah, the students began learning since then.
Consequently, there arose a need to visit the place and to follow up with the work progress so I setout for Hadyai on the 5th of March 2016 and returned on the 9th. It was a trip coupled with many unforgettable moments So I decided to note down some of them and share with you my learning experience.
