It was when I was high school, I have heard what Routine is. As a high school football player, each members in our team had made different routines for making our football performance great but I totally forgot what I had then.The point is didn’t make my routine as a voluntary basis, so like I was forced to do it by the coaches. This is so nonsense.
Like 8 years passed, there are many routines I have now.

Report and share who visited the officeDialy reportToilet cleaning
Came up these things in 4 months but I will create more, like reading, writing and those “input” “output” time, also walking. It’s just started, the important point is to “keep doing” more than the time like 10 years which is huge moment.
August 19th in 2019, I’ve finally come back to my hometown Hakusan, Ishikawa and decided to start my new life from this mid of September. It was 5 and a half year spending my life based in Tokyo from March in 2014. Now is the time I thank everyone who supports me a lot with huge respect.
It’s been almost 1 month after the biggest election of the Member of the House of Councilors in Japan ended in Reiwa era. During the period, I think I could do the best for letting people around me go to vote, like my awesome colleagues. However, never felt something changed in society. What I wanted to change was people’s mindset and their actions for Politics and the societies in Japan.
The voting rate of the election was 48.80% which is the second lowest rate of the Member of the House of Councilors in the history in Japan.
I think people try to change this rate more getting increasing, but the point is we have to get closer politicians and people in this nation. That is the purpose, we both need to change if you wanna change something in this nation, I think.
I always have a question of what “I” can do for this issue. My answer was to change the people around me first, like my colleagues. I have a belief “A person who cannot change the person in front of you cannot change the world”. Fortunately, most of my colleagues are around 20 years who are said they are not going to vote usually. So I thought I was supposed to try to let them go vote as sending a reminder to them.
Why? My team is existing to change the world. That’s it. For me, it doesn’t make sense someone in the team who wants to change the world abandoning the right to vote.
I got many comments from my colleagues, “I went to vote with the families”, “I went to vote with the families during walking the dog”, “Because of your reminder and pressure”. Glad, glad to hear that kinda voices they went to vote since my reminders and pressures that made my life. That is one of the reasons I have my life.
Also, this was my first time to go vote with someone. I went to vote with Sho one of my colleagues he had just turned 18 years old., so it was his first time to go vote in his life. Couldn’t imagine I would encounter this kind of memorial moment here Tokyo.
Some people around me seemed they didn’t go vote, actually. It is thankful for me, I don’t stop doing this campaign for enlightenment the rest of my life. Thanks my friends who will change society with me.
Big change is from piling up by small changes, I believe it.
I think not yet, but thank you my friend Pasi. It was 6.10.2019 at Jyväskylä, Finland.
Visited to Jyväskylä to meet Pasi who my old friend we were the student at J.F.Oberlin University in 2016 spring together and he is currently working at trustmary one of the video prodcution company. And I have visited with one of my team Sho Tokuoka at Slush Tokyo who has been to Europe countries for the first time to this memorial moment.
I met Pasi after almost 3 years when I was in Kuopio. He organised everything like our stay in his place in Jyväskylä.We had a lunch together at Jyväskylä, and Sho and I went to the adventure park in Jyväskylä, we expexted to have just fun but it was super hard working time for us… but the adventure park was awesome to work out with big forest and mosquitoes.
After that we wemt to Petäjävesi Old Church with Pasi’s friend pekka where I tried to go when I was in Kuopio with Pasi, so I have finally visited there even Pasi haven’t been there before. The architecture was bulided in 1763~65 by woods and registered the world heritage in 1994.
I was suprised Pasi is from the island in Jyväskylä. We visited his parents house where Mayu our frined in Japan before as well. His mum and dog called Ellu are awesome they made warm us like as one of the family even we are from weird country Japan as stranger. Living at island where just passed after the bridge makes me remember Notojima where is near my home town and I have worked as internship and Takahashi san election support.
The captain petri has a boat called Repe, the coolest one I ever met before since there is a sauna inside a boat. This crazy thing I totally didn’t expect before I came to Finland. Like a thing I just can see the movie or Youtube. We moved to Naukula one of the islands in Jyväskylä and we had a BBQ with beautiful sunset.
What a this crazy thing is Sauna in boat makes me feel I finally have become a Finn even I experienced sauna, swim in frozen lake, play with reindeers and so on. This crazy thing was awesome. The captain Petri’s grandfather made it and he took over it.Having sauna in the boat and swim in the lake naked with beer. Wow, how can I imagine this happening when I was little? This is like I only watched on TV in my life. However, it happened me, wow. Pasi, Pekka and Petri, you guys are awesome I’ve never met in my life. You guys made my part of new life in 2019.The purpose of this trip to Finland was to join Slush global gathering but it made my trip in 2019 which is the year mt graduation and started working as full-time job.
「卒論でもやるか〜」ってなって堀先生の元で中小企業の事業承継に関する研究を進めていたら、SLUSH TOKYO も世代交代の時期にあるって噂で聞いて、気がついたら当時時期CEO、COOと言われていた古川遥夏（現CEO）と柿嶋夏海（現COO）が持つ信念に共感してチームの一部になっていた。ふたりを見ていると、こういう人が世界を変えるんだってのが分かる。強い信念を持ち、人への優しさも備えていて、まさに着いていきたい。応援したいって思わせる人格者です。でも僕自身、目立ちたがりなのでそういうボランティア統括とか、営業とかってポジションでやりたかったところなぜか、Finance and Legal 経理法務担当としてジョインしていた。それは今でも不思議に思う。ただ、僕自身興味があったことが会社の経営と承継ってポイントであって、その観点から「前任者→後継者」への引き継ぎをバックオフィスとして俯瞰的に見れたってのは大きかったなと。約1年間だったけど、一瞬一瞬がドラマチックでこれは時間作って本にもでしたいな。よし、書こう。
その結果から、2人のフィンランド人が、最近注目されているフィンランドの社会福祉や、教育の制度で生きてきた、またこれからそういった制度で生きていく子供を持つ母としてのモデルになってもらい、彼女らの生い立ちとか、結婚するまでの過程を自分の昔の写真とか使って話してもらったら、日本社会で育ってきた学生なら今の日本社会とのギャップを勝手に”感じる”やろと思ってそういった内容にできないかと交渉した所、やってくれた。My Personal Story っていう題からレクチャーを始めてくれて、まじ？！ってくらい自分の歴史をオープンに見せてくれた。フィンランド人だということを疑うくらい、オープンな内容だった。「娘の学校はこんな感じだよ～」とか、話してる時に母親になっているJonnaが垣間見えたりするのが、人間味があってなんか幸せやなってなったね。
