"It won't be my end at Shanghai Expo, I was like a 38-day baby. I need to learn more in a second tour," she said. "I especially like Chinese local provincial pavilions, I need to pay a second round of visits to experience and understand more."
Yamada also thanked the Shanghai people's hospitality during the Expo period.
Tomiyo Yamada is a huge fan of the World Expo. She battled illness to set a new attendance record at the 2005 Aichi World Expo by visiting it 243 times — a number she plans to surpass at this year’s Shanghai Expo.
