I published the book name "Everything about referendums"

With my boss, finally, I published the book name "Everything about referendums" For a half year, I have concentrated all my time and power to the book. I am delighted to say to friends about it. This half year was such tough days which I should response from my boss all day long. I believe this book is needed for every Japanese because, Japanese will face the first referendum in Nationwide, so they should know other countries experience.

I start running with Nike + run club.

I quit swimming but, I started running with Nike + run club.

Usually, I work in my house all day to read books, to write articles. When I lived in Kawagoe, I had visited swimming pool 3times a week. I moved to Higashimatsuyama, it's too far now to visit there.

The app, Nike+ can record my running log.

"Media will control Japanese constitutional amendment referendum." is written by Ryu Honma.



"Media will control Japanese constitutional amendment referendum." is written by Ryu Honma.

We will face constitutional amendment referendum in a few years. Japan has already the law to hold a referendum. The law is based on freedom of expression and campaign but on the other hand, anyone can use the money for advertisement unlimited. It causes unfair campaign because, the side which wants to amendment constitution, has much more money than the other side which doesn't want to change.

If one side paid huge amount money for media, and the other a little, that makes the media favour for one side.

In fact, before 11th Mar 2011 Fukushima disaster, main Japanese media don't report about the danger of Nuclear because TEPCO spends about 30 billion JPY (250 million USD) to the media. People could not avoid seeing the advertisement about on the TV, Newspaper and magazines. Steadily, people, don't dought one-sided report and advertisement.

If PM Shinzo Abe holds a referendum now, it's clear that extremely unfair amount of money and advertisement are able to control our decision. We need a limit the amount of spending money, and the advertisement. U.K has the kind of law. We should revise the law. Otherwise, Japanese referendum will be obstructed by the money through media.

R.I.P Fukashigi/wonderboy who was my classmate.

R.I.P Fukashigi/wonderboy who was my classmate.

The end of 2011 my friend recommended me the singer who had died in Jun of that year.





I'm sorry the song is written in Japanese.
It's translation to English. I loved this song, then I downloaded other songs my phone too. I have listened to his songs often for few months.

After 5 years, another my friend asked me "Is Fukashigi/wonderboy your classmate in high school?"

I had known him just as a singer, but when I watched the video to seek my acquaintance again.

.... I may know him.

I checked our yearbook and found him who is Ishida. I googled "Fukashigi/wonderboy real name" then Google answered "Ishida."

I remember him. He is a member of the badminton club. I belonged to Cheer club, so his club's room was the next door. We often talked about something useless.

He was not a smart man, I was worse though. However, he is a blight and friendly guy.


He appears in the movie.
Do anybody my classmate know that "Fukashigi/wonderboy" is Ishida?

Japanese get into board games.



I wrote an article about a board game on the evening newspaper "Yukan Fuji."

___________ 

Japanese get into board games.

"Board game" is not only for Children also for adults now in Japan. Board game seemed for children for a long time but recent, Adults have noticed the deepness of board game.

It takes only a few minutes from Ikebukuro station, you can find board game cafe named "Jelly Jelly cafe" When I visited there on a weekday afternoon, a  dating couple and group of men had enjoyed already playing. I asked a guest that "How do you think about a board game?" She answered "I like a video game too, but we can talk and think each other at the same time. I will come to play here again." There is another board game cafe named "Korokoro-dou" in Nezu. The cafe is loved by local people. People visited these cafes after drinking party, instead of Karaoke. The number of that kind of cafe has already increased rapidly. There are over 180 at least in Japan mainly located in Tokyo. 

Board game expo is held 3 times a year. People can sell and buy there. New board are created more than 1000 every year that people working as a stuff said.

Board games are used not only playing also used for job training. They can learn about finance or strategy through playing a game. Purpose of training, or for playing, now it's popular to create a new board game. Yasuhide Ishigami is a founder of "Gamifi Japan" which supports and consulting to make a new game. From his workshop, around 70 new games were created.

Koji Maruta has run a store that specialises in board games for 11 years. He watched the history of Japanese board game culture. He said that "In the early days of Japanese board game culture, a kind of enthusiast bought games even it was expensive, but recently, a cheap and easy game is getting popular now." "Everybody can enjoy creative thinking, discussing and deciding on the common rule even easy game. Trough playing game, people can make a community, and also extend it."

Anyway, I recommend playing on long autumn nights. It's much better than just talking about "Board game".

An affair with a stranger is not your business!


The Bridges Of Madison County.jpg

Media reported too much about an affair of a well-known person, and many people blame the affair, I want to say that "it's not your business".

When some big-name did an affair, many people blame him. You must not expect others too much because other people don't expect you at all! It's an exception if you have a relationship with the person who cheats on you, I understand you expect or blame him.

It's easy to blame other people who committed adultery, but it's difficult to love a neighbour.

Please do not judge other people's relationship.

I worry about you if you will concern other people's affair so much.

Do you really love someone? Don't you love just someone who loves you?
If your lover cheats on you, do you still love yours?
Or do you have the other lover?

You should accept existence other people's relationship.
If you blame someone or affair, you will not be happy badly.

I don't care about the private life of well-known people. I expect a singer to sing a good song, a politician to do good politics.

I love the story of "The bridges of Madison County."

What is Populism?

People can easily criticise political decision with using this word "Populism". They believe they know the truth or right way, and other people don't know it. Recently years media use the word primarily, Brexit and Trump situation but before criticising, do you know anyone who voted for it? We should understand what was happened to them.
If people just criticise Brexit or Trump voter, the voter will be more obstinate.

In Latin America, populism movements will make more fair society like blowing wind coming from left but recently in European countries, U.S, or Filipin, populism caused intolerant sociaty name of "liberal democracy."

Intolerant society will be created not by populism.
People who have bigoted mind can have been pressured by something. If neighbours may support them, people can have a more tolerant.

I will keep thinking "Democracy", "Referendum" and "Populism".

16,000$ bill for my iPhone!

10,000$ bill for my iPhone in 2010.

I received a super large bill. After coming back from Vietnam.


After graduated uni, I have travelled Vietnam for one month. It was incredible. Delicious and cheap fruits and food, great nature and friendly people were a delight.

Vietnam was my second foreign country. At that time I didn't know about security well. When I had stayed luxury hotel in Hochiminh, I had left my phone in my room. When I came back my room, my lovely iPhone was gone. I know it was a thoughtless act.

I talked to the staff of the hotel about that my phone was stolen. He helped me to translate from English to Vietnamese in the police station.

The hotel staff asked me to sign a certificate of theft. I did as he told, even I couldn't understand what the certificate says. At that time, it was comforting to get the certificate. I needed it to claim insurance.

Then my friend translated the certificate of theft from Vietnamese to English. I was so surpurised because it says I had left my phone in a PARK, not the HOTEL! I think the Hotel staff wants to avoid investigation.

Anyway, my phone was covered by insurance with the certificate.

Whats more, after coming back to Japan, I got 1,731,437 JPY (over 16,000$!) bill for using the phone in Vietnam!!!


What the hell...

How many figures is it?

Around 2017, the phone company started the service that people can use a cell phone in abroad too, but it cost very expensive.


I called to the phone company that I didn't use it at all. She asked me to improve it. I sent the certificate of theft.

I was waiting for 2 days. I can't think anything others.

Finally, she called back me, I picked up the receiver with trembling hand. she answered me "you don't have to pay all of the amounts, but you must pay 80,000JPY (750$)"

It's still very expensive but, I paid it as soon as possible, and I didn't want to think about it anymore.

It was my mistake, I don't have a grudge against a thief at all.
I hope the thief became happy using my iPhone.

we found a cute suspect.

5th and 6th Sep, I've been to Motegi Tochigi to prepare harvest.

It's been 7 years since we started the rice field. In this year we will harvest on 7th Oct.

Before harvesting wild boars ate our rice!!

Look!! We served them with organic rice!!


I felt so sad because they have eaten over half of ours. When we rebuilt the electric fence, we found a suspect. 


Cute.......

We can't kill him. Please don't eat so much. Please leave rice for us.
