Looking for lost japanese friend - 06-08-2016, 10:10 AM

Hi there,
I'm looking for help, since I don't know where to start.

I'm looking for my friend which I met 9 years ago at Ferry Crossing In Sumatra, Indonesia. We had a nice conversation, and later on I knew that he was travelling across country (backpacking). He used to work in entertainment business, and after a while, he leave his job for an adventure. with only carrying a bag and shoes, no cameras or phone
He told me that he was planning to go to thailand, china and back to japan.

few months later i received a postcard from him, and it was sent from china.

and two years (2009) later i received an email from him. he told me that he is currently working as a teacher in Public School at Tokyo, Nerima-ku
Tried a few times to email him, but no response, but it seems the email address is still active

So, if there anyone who might know him, it would be a great help.

Oh, and by the way, his name is Ko Honobe

"Honobe" is rare family name in Japan. I can not imagine the name in Japanese (Kanji).

However, when I checked "honobe" in facebook, I found some people who has "honobe" as family name. Though I did not find "Ko Honobe", you could access them and ask them if they know "Ko Honobe" or not.

At least, a few Honobe people have accounts in facebook.

Been tried to ask them (by facebook message) but no response yet.... it's kind a weird asking some stranger whether he/she know someone... looking forward for their response though...
