the following decisions. We ask for your understanding and cooperation.

"か (ka)", or "さ (sa)" column of the Japanese hiragana
Group 2: Those whose last names start with a character in the "た (ta)",
"な (na)", "は (ha)", "ま (ma)", "や (ya)",
"ら (ra or la)", or "わ (wa)" column of the Japanese
hiragana chart, plus Nozomien bakery employees.
