"Referendum around the world for Japanese" on Tokyo Newspaper.



I have written about "Referendum around the world for Japanese" for many times on my blog. I'm a member of the publishing group for the book.

Tokyo newspaper reports our book Today, 15th, May 2017.

I had told on the phone interview that, "Japan is a rare case which countries didn't experience a referendum even at the time of establishing the constitution. The referendum is not a bad system, not scary, it is the fairest way to decide democratically. We Japanese have never done a referendum in nationwide in our history so I would like you to know about the other country's referendum at first."




On the same page, Enno Schmidt who is a founder of "Basic income" Initiative in Switzerland told about basic income

Something good for you.
My hometown Takasaka in Higashimatsuyama, there had been some cafe when I lived there. I thought it was nothing special. Every station has at least one cafe, but when I had come back to Japan on last November, all cafe was gone. I was so shocked, I thought it was my fault, I didn't care about a cafe, I didn't realise how important Cafe is. We need somewhere just sit and talk with coffee. Last month I went to my hometown again, my friend living there told me that new cafe shop opened. I was so happy to hear that. Then yesterday I went the shop named "Yoake" Yoake means "Dawn" in English. I ate "Taco-rice" which is contained soy-meat. It tastes surprisingly delicious. Then I ordered a cheesecake with organic Strawberry too. It also tasted amazing. I really recommend you to come to "Yoake", but I know you don't have the timing to come to Takasaka. I will go to there many times as possible, I know that now if I don't come often, the shop would leave there. Our station doesn't have a bookstore now. I will accept the truth, and if new bookstore opens at Takasaka, I'm glad to buy books there to keep them in our hometown.  

Have you ever devoted yourself to something?
When I was a student, I joined fundraising event for saving poor people. Do you know NGO Oxfam which is famous in Europe? At that time Oxfam is not well-known, they launched in Japan 2 years before at that point. The event was to be held for fundraising like that. We were 4 people team. We declared to hike 100km in 48 hours. This is our 4's challenge, and we asked friends to give some money for our challenge against poverty. We collect over 400 thousand yen. Then we ran together in 48 hours! 

Who is a character in Anime Anpanman like you?
I don't know much about Anpanman. I remember "Omusubiman" Omusubi means rice ball in Japanese. He is a traveller who is very strong and cool guy like me. My Omusubiman image is seemed like Snufkin in Moomin. I'm not so calm I'm a more emotional person.

9th Jun, Talk Event "We can live anywhere in the world"



I will talk about my story which I experienced in abroad at 9th Jun, in Shimokitazawa Tokyo. The event title means "There is a kindness to be found everywhere in the world" I will share my knowledge how I met great friends, got the jobs, and how I travelled these countries. It's a message "We can live anywhere in the world" if you want!

When I was a student,  I decided that I stay at least one month in abroad. After that, I've been to Canada, Vietnam, Taiwan, Filipin, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Ireland, Scotland, England, U.S, and Germany.


I visited Canada for the first time for me. I stayed Grande Prairie as a farm stay. Following year, I visited Vietnam, at that time, my iPhone was stolen, and I got a bill which amounts 10000 dollars for my stolen iPhone. I got over the problem. 

I travelled by hitchhiking around Britain island. I met very kind people who took me another place. Some of them treated me food and even bed too. It was a risk, but for me, this was a fantastic experience, I met many local people, and I talked with them. They took also risk to bring me to another place, so I appreciate them very much.


Japanese with their passport can go 173 countries without a visa! We have very strong chance to go abroad but, only 24% people have a passport. I will encourage people who are undecided to go overseas!
