Oona Tempest was originally dreaming of becoming an artist and graduated from the art school in New York. Her favorite theme was "fish". I was asked to change to a friend who worked at a sushi shop "Tanoshi Sushi", so Tempest says he felt "attracted to sushi". And, he is a pupil of a skilled sushi craftsman Ogama Toshio (Toshio Oguma).

"And," The philosophy taught was truly serious, and even if we can not always deliver delicious food, we will welcome you with a smile.I can not make delicious dishes for those who are not genuinely that is also my philosophy I heard that he also taught Tempest. Tempest says, "Before I made up my mind to become a sushi craftsman, I planned to go to Japan and do translation work. The reason why I became obsessed with sushi was not taste, it was a feeling.The feel, temperature, rice and I remember seeing that feeling I wanted to taste again ".

Shoori Ito, Ha Ayuta # MyToo talk (Mashing Up)

On February 23, journalist Shogori Ito and a blogger / writer, Mr. Aku, joined the business conference "MASHING UP". I am talking about the preparedness until the two people accuse the damage and what actually happened after the accusation. In the second part, we introduce the actual situation of prevention of harassment in Japan that is likely to bias workers, personnel affairs and perpetrators to prevent sexual harassment. We encourage the parties themselves to disseminate information and read them. The theme of MASHING UP is Unleash Yourself (let's unleash ourselves). "Sex, age, race, beliefs - There are times when various categories that decorate us create heavy pressure of customs and tacit consciousness, unconsciously," You must do this ". Among them, it is not easy to find new possibilities and options. " We are also looking forward to the diversity and development of the place where each person discovers "what I want" and sends out. Japan also included the "tacit consent", "standard", "norm", etc. of society that finally had been established in the period of rapid growth after "low birthrate, aging population", "population decrease" and "lost 20 years" , I think that it is recognized that cooperativeism (corporatism) is interfering with the development of 21st century society, economic growth and labor productivity. It takes time to change the social structure, but I would like to support and support the diversity of activities across fields.

What is changed in Japan and "What will not change" clearly

Happy New Year. I hope that 2018 (Heisei 30 years) will be "a year of leap" for you and for Japan. Japan is now at the forefront of a super aging society. In 2019, it will be "the retirement of the Emperor of the Emperor" and "the throne of the new emperor and the new era". The Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games will be held in 2020. It is Japan's last chance. The turbulent world, what Japan should do "ahead"? Prime Minister Abe talks with the beginning of the year, saying, "The future can be changed with our hands," and I am determined. I think that the top priority should be the sense of speed and its effectiveness. I think that we should recognize the "lost decade", "lost 20 years", "lost 30 years", unseen "no resilience" and "world competitiveness" not seen in this world I will. About this, what is "letting it do" of Japanese society? I think that Japan can not escape unless you change it and clarify what "will not change" to cope with and execute it. It is said that Japan is now lagging around the world. Prime Minister Abe Heisei 30 years Inspiration (Prime Minister's Official Residence) From "Ichigo-san" who died in April 2013 "About economic downturn" Economics is not an abstract numerical sequence, one of the people I was given the comment that "Is not it the total amount of creativity of one person and ability to think by myself?" I also think so.

Gender disparity index 2017 Japan 114th (Global Gender Gap Report 2017)

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) World Gender Equality Annual Report 2017 announced on November 2, the gender disparity expanded worldwide for the first time since the first 2006 report. The deterioration of the gender disparity in the world is based on the spread of gender disparity in the four pillars of "educational background" "health and survival rate", "opportunity for economic activity" and "political authority". We point out that workplaces and politics are particularly serious. France (17th to 11th) ranked the highest in gender equality in the G20 (major 20 countries) countries, followed by Germany (12), UK (20th to 15th), Canada (from 35th 16th), South Africa (19), and Argentina (34). The United States is ranked 49th and under the group with 4 rankings dropped. China (100), India (108), Japan (114), Korea (118), Turkey (131), and Saudi Arabia (138). Of the 144 countries surveyed in Japan, 1015 in 2015, 111 in 2016 and finally in 1147 in 2017 are the lowest ever in history. The political sector has greatly dropped from 103rd to 123rd, and the economic field also remains low at 114th. Japan is not going to go unless all the women shining society building headquarters (prime minister's official residence) do not have immediate effect and effective policy such as introduction of quota system in all fields. The recent forecast worth noting as an economic case for Beijing +20 and positive action, quota system equality is that GDP rises due to economic gender equality, US $ 1.750 billion, Japan 550 billion, France 3,200 It is said that Germany has an economic effect of 310 billion dollars. Also, it seems that the economic effect of China's GDP is 2.5 trillion dollars from gender equality. According to a survey at LinkedIn, "men are underestimated in education, health and welfare areas, while women are underestimated in engineering, manufacturing and construction, information, communication and technology areas. Differences in areas mean the possibility of losing the opportunity to further enhance gender diversity, innovation, creativity and profitability in each department.

The charm and fun of Kabuki (Kabuki) to overseas

Kabuki (kabuki) is registered as UNESCO intangible cultural heritage in September 2009, one of the traditional performing arts in theater unique to Japan. The origin of the name of Kabuki is said to be a "walnut" noun-like "tilting" of ancient words, like fancy costumes and unusual odd shapes, running into behavior that deviates from normal (^ ^) It is said that the original ancestry of kabuki is "wearing dance" which was originated by a woman named "country." It was adopted at a young shop (prostitute Kabuki) and spreads nationwide in just over 10 years, but quarrels are constantly prohibited by the Edo shogunate along with a male color 'Wakame Kabuki'. According to "Keiichi Kagamine" of Keicho 5 (1600), it seems that it included an erotic scene of playing "tea chest of players". Kabuki has penetrated the English-speaking world through Ukiyo-e since the Edo Period "Kabuki" "Ninjya" "Geisya" seems not to be said to be correctly understood by including tradition. Borrowing words to English are increasing, but it seems that such words also pass (^ ^) Borrowing from Japanese to English (Wikipedia) About English "Kabuki", politically related news This is now political kabuki theater It seems that there are cases in which phrases such as "Kabuki theater today" and "political kabuki" in political speech are reported as politicians. The native who likes Kabuki seems not to use this expression. Japanese traditional arts may be difficult to understand and difficult to understand. In addition to increasing the opportunities for theatrical performances and strengthening overseas dissemination, it is necessary for the Japanese to deepen their understanding of diversity and cross-cultures and to go to cool Japan (Cool Japan) who actively accepts different cultures I think.
