This is what we face and need to tackle

I wrote a my sincere feeling in my previous post. Yes, that is a reality I face everyday. Ignorance and misunderstanding are rampant everywhere.

Never ever work with local government in my next life!

I'm sick of it, deeply in my mind. I have worked with local govnermnent for 1 fiscal year. I realized they can not make any innovations, do something new and change anything. Why? because they don't learn and they have a tragically short j…

An angel investor visited our facility and luckily he had a class for our young entrepreneurs. I could also sit there.

Nostalgic Kobe and the future from now on

Kobe Luminarie has started. This is an event for commemorating and revitalizing the victims of the earthquake.It may strange, I felt like I finally came back Kobe somehow.

Happy New Year 2024! I always make a new year resolusion during my new year holiday.

Got some lessons in a trail

”Wait, we might have gone down too much..." My friend shouted slitely from behind me.

Bye my friend, it's a short farewell

One of my friends from our small circle asked us out for hiking a few weeks ago. We did go last weekend. I like hiking, we sometimes hike together.

Making a Good habit with numerous attemps

This time is different. I decided. I wake up early everyday. I am motivated enough. I just realized time really, really flies since I stepped into my 30s. The event I hosted last week feels like it was yesterday. But when I carefully start…

Career Ambition and Entrepreneurship

I have been absorbing a lot of information about startups and climate-related topics recently in my role as a startups ecosystem builder since I joined this current job.

Turning points in my life and career

I started to live and work in Kobe after returning from the UK to Japan. It was the fist time in 4 years that I worked in Japan and the first time in 2 years that I livedin Japan. Already 8 months passed though.

Can we know the reason why you left your previous job in Tokyo?

I had a job interview last week. It was okay as a result. Because I passed the interview and have 2nd interview at their office.

Trying to make good habits for my wonderful life

I started to make good habits recently in spite of negative experiences. When I recall the past couple of years of experience, I have made a habit of running almost 2 years ago to lose weight.

Do Moocs help my career or torture my life?

I started to take a corporate finance course recently by Edx. Edx is one of the MOOCs. Mooc stands for a massive open online course. It means we can study some subjects that noble universities provide remotely for free or cheap.

Far from EBPM

Once back in Japan, Japanese news jumps into my sight. One of them attracted strongly my attention. It is about Joint custody. Currently, Japan doesn't have joint custody. Only Single custody exists. In many cases, the mother takes their k…

A troubled career planning

Time flies, it's been a while since I uploaded a post last time. Wow, almost 1 year! Can't believe I still remember this blog! Anyway, I entered British graduate school last autumn and the spring term is almost finished. It means my master…

Why celebrities become a politician easier

What I expect studying in the UK to bring

Luckily, I got a offer with IELTS score condition from graduate school in the UK recently. I need to get 7.0 since my score is still 6.0. But it is good news anyway. I can study in the UK to get master's degree, although it is still in the…

Hectic and silent year

2020 was completely unpredicted for me, probably for everyone. My ideal plan was ruined by the pandemic. Since the covid-19 was recognised as a serious deadly disease such as the Spanish flu in 100 years ago, soon I was sent back to Japan …

Media or Development studies?

Recently I'm looking for postgraduate course which I should go to. By the way my GPA score was improved thanks to evaluation system difference between the UK and Japan. Now, I'm in upper second level. It means I can apply almost every cour…

Like a Flowers for Algernon

When I was a teenager in a remote corner of Japan, my life was very simple. A 30 mile radius was my whole world. I had only to play video games and baseball, and sometimes study. When I was a 20, my life was still simple and small. But aft…
