Dear Shanj,

I hope you're doing well. And wish you all the best in your career and life. I still remember the nice moments we spent together last summer in South Africa. I am so honoured to receive your invitation to visit your fabulous country 'Japan'. I expect to visit you and I need some information regarding this.

First of all, as I will meet your parents, I want to bring few gifts for them. We are used to following this trend in my country and I am wondering what kind of gifts you think would be appropriate? Second, as you know, my country has a hot climate and I have no idea about the weather in Japan at this period of the year. I need your advice on the kind of clothes I should bring. I also need to be prepared for any activity we may do while staying in your town.

I need your advice about the availability of Arabic restaurants in Japan. I need to get along with your local food also.

Hope to hear from you, and to see you soon.
