BC: We love Kana
1: To: Kana From: Your friends at Kamon Thank you for all the memories, laughs, and most importantly, your friendship. We love you and will miss you!!! Here's a book so that you'll always remember your favorite people from Kamon! :)
2: "There's no place like Kamon"
3: "The love of a family is life's greatest blessing"
4: SHAWN | I'm going to miss you so much, Kana! I remember all the fun times we had together at work and all the nonstop laughter at stupid people (especially Chinese assholes). I know I rarely ever went out with you guys aside from work, but we still have our good memories :) Like when you would sleep over my house trying to get work done but we would just talk shit and play with Reptar haha. Or when we smoked out and went bowling on New Years lol OR when you got me super fucking wasted at Coconut Bay and I fell out of the bathroom stall with my pants down hahahaha. OR when you used to motorboat me when I had bigger titties hahahahahaha okay, that's enough. I'm really going to miss how easygoing, fun and caring you are. I really don't have another friend like you. You take care of all of us like you're our big sister that I sometimes forget we really aren't family! I love that I never have to worry about drama with you because you've always been super chill and way better than all the dumb bitches out there. Do you know how hard that is to find in a girlfriend?! This is why I love you so, so, sooo much. You've got such a big heart and I feel so incredibly comfortable with you. I'm just going to miss you so effing much because you've become such a big part of my life, whether I get drunk with you often or not. I'm definitely going to visit you in Japan and I hope you come back to visit us too. We can have another sleepover with Reptar! Anyway, I love you like a sister and I know for a fact that working at Kamon is never going to be as fun without you there :( I love you Kana! And I'm going to cry every shift until you come back!!! -Shawn | AYA
5: Dear kana- I often think of how you greeted me for consecutive dinner shifts with, 'hi mofo.' What was up with that? I haven't seen you in a long time but I do think of you often and that won't change. You are loved, missed, and most of all sensually desired by so many- I hope japan can handle you because you are crazy! I love you very much. - james | JAMES | AYA
7: Kanaaaaaaaaa~! I'm going to miss you so much! We have to videochat everyday okay??? :) Then, I wo't be as sad! haha... You know, I've always believed that "everything happens for a reason" and I truly believe that me gettig laid off, and going back to Kamon was so that we can become the good friends that we are today. Even though we just recently started hanging out I feel like we've made so many great memories together! The concerts, partying, benkyokais @ ten rens, shopping, working out...all fun times that I will never forget! You taught me that life is too short and that we should be having fun every day (while we can!) I promise I'll try not to become too much of an "obasan" while you're gone but....no guarantees hahaa. I will see you in Japan! Yay!! Gambarou-ne~! Love, Yuri-chan | Q: What kind of oil does Santa-san like? give up??? :) A: "Ho-Ho"-ba oil
10: Kana! I'll truly miss you while you're in Nihon. I can't thank you enough for all that you have taught me. You've always looked out for me like a sister. One day i'll know enough japanese to hold a conversation with you and I'll come visit in Japan. Good luck with your new job, I know you'll do well. -Takeshi | TAKESHI

12: Good luck in Japan! | JON | Good luck with everything! I know you will succeed in whatever you do! -Jon
13: Hi Kana, you crazy girl!! Although I haven't known you for that long, I am convinced that you are one of the most generous, fun-loving, and sincere girls that I have ever met. I feel so fortunate to have met you at Kamon; even when confronted with irritatingly demanding customers or crazy rushes, you still managed to make it enjoyable. I will forever remember all our fun times together. Thank you for being such an amazing friend and keeping my secret :P I see nothing but a bright future ahead of you. Best of luck in all you endeavors. I promise that one day I will visit you in Japan and we'll have even more fun times together! love, Emily | EMILY
14: Love you Kana! See you in Tokyo, future neighbor! :) -Charles | CHARLES
15: Kana-chan! Where do I even begin to tell the start of our journey? I often wondered how different my life would be without you. I definitely won't forget the night where I got trashed off wine and knocked out during 300. I felt so bad that you had to take care of me, mostly because it was the first real time I actually drank. There are so many memories that I want to touch on. Like the nights where you would come over and stay up with me during my crazy intense art projects, helping me keep my sanity, helping me to keep together my broken projects. I loved every moment of it. I miss the late night talks, the sleepovers, wednesday night family time. You've been a big part of me growing up. I'd be a completely different person had I not met you. I think we've both grown in the years passed. I mean, it has been almost five years since I started working at Kamon. I remember the first time you talked about leaving back to Japan and the overall sense of hopelessness and sadness that came over me, but now it's here and it's real. I don't know how to cope with it especially because you'll be so far away. I don't want to think how different it's going to change the dynamics of Kamon, but it will. You're such a huge part of the Kamon family, always there to save the day. I really hope to visit you in Japan one day. I know you'll make it big and you'll make us proud. I feel like you're leaving your HOMETOWN and not actually going home to where you're from. I also sound like some sappy girlfriend that you're leaving behind. Anyway, I love you so much and a lot more than you'll know. You're like my sister. Till we meet again. Sou, sou, sou, sou, sou. Ne, ne, ne, ne, ne, Taipuraita. <3 with all my heart, Chibi | CLARA
17: Kana, I'll never forget the first time we met at kamon when you came in and asked me for an application. Who would've known years later we would be partying nonstop and having the time of our lives at restaurants, bars, and clubs. From the drunken nights to the serious talks, any and every memory I have with you puts a smile on my face. Kana, I am very lucky to have met you, worked with you, and be able to call you my friend. You are one of the most fun loving girls I know, not to mention beautiful and so kind. I wish you nothing but the best in all that you pursue in japan. I am way overdue for a japan trip, so I'm not going to say goodbye, but see you soon. I can't wait for the memories to continue when I'm there in japan. Take care :) Love always, Mika | MIKA
20: Thank you for everything you've done for Kamon. Over the years, you've become like family to all of us so please never hesitate to call. Whether it's just to say hi or you're in need of help, we will all definitely be there to support you!! Kamon will never be the same without you- I mean, what are we going to do with so many sober nights to come?! James | JAMES
21: K is for KANA, KAMON, & the KOZONOS!
22: KO | Hey kana it was too bad i left for vegas but the times we hung out were awesome. Going to pechanga after your first day at work on our first meeting wasnt a bad way to kick start an awesome friendship :) I know you will have a ton of success in Japan but i wish you nothing but the best of luck. Keep in touch and we will hang out soon. Sayonara jya nakute mata ne- dayo! Ko Maemura
