About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be curious, Be creative

ABOUT ME

When I was young I believed myself as not typical Japanese,
after having traveled several countries, I knew that I am being a typical Japanese in many ways.

Generally we Japanese have no restricts or tabus from our main religion or belief of Buddhism and Shinto ( but I was grow up in Christian family )
then are brimming with curiosity without any hesitation.
So we Japanese have the ability to learn or to import foreign cultures then customize them to our way.
This is what I mean I am typical Japanese that to learn and to experience the differences adopt them for the benefit of our daily life.
We expect CSer to bring something new to our daily life.

I love nature observation specially watching plants, handwork and experiments.
do cooking satisfy my those interests.

I love Jazz music since teenage, But I move to Lingara in congo or Zaire, Taarab in Tanzania, Hindu pops, Taiwan pops.. also.

I love stream lined and philosophical architectures like Japanese temples, gardens, and shrines, also geometrically well designed Islamic architectures,
Taj Mahal, is my most impressed architecture.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that human nature is fundamentally good.
Peace may brought by understanding and knowing each others,
that how we are difference and how we are same
and to aware we are living on the same atmosphere on the Earth.
Traveling world then making friends, meeting and even getting know people contribute world peace.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When our swedish friend invited us to stay her summer house in Northern part of Sweden.
she send me a spare key of her flat with a piece of map.
After we arrived Stockholm we became explorers to find her vacant flat to stay for a night, there were train tickets to her summer house.
We were so surprised to receive a key by post, we were grad that her to trust us.

When i traveled alone in rural area in Tanzania, i met a Muslim family they invited me for every meals while i was there for 2 - 3 nights.
This was my first acquaintance with Muslim then i could know they were really peaceful, polite, intelligent curious and respectful other culture inclusive our Japanese culture.

Those past lucky meeting brought me to have my philosophy.
