Hello girls!

Every time I visit Mum, I find Japan keeps changing.

Even classic interior train has display as information board.


Japanese love ‘Kaizen’- ‘continually improve all functions in daily manners’.

Japanese are proud of this word, which spread out from their small islands.

Japanese are proud of their improvement, which they can see and show in charts.


i don’t oppose. It’s good. But how about our inside?

Do we forget Zen tradition?

Do we forget happiness?

Do we forget ourselves?


Can I stand still for a while?
