We have always been big followers of what attracts us: fashion, style, culture, art and people. As Japanese born-and-raised individuals, we have always wanted to be a part of something through which we can introduce ourselves to the world and broadcast …from our complex culture as well.
In our opinion, there are only a few media outlets that really convey what Japan has to offer to the world but it’s not enough. We often wonder if many people think about the fact that we are often on the receiving end of information, and not so much the producing side.
Thinking about “Cool Japan”, an idea that has been widely broadcasted over the past ten years, our image is quite different to the information available. Since that’s the case, we decided, “Why not publish our own perceptions independently?
What is the “ideal” individual like?
Most people have this idea at some point in their life.
One of our members, who lost his father over ten years ago shared his thoughts on this once and we still think about it even now. In the course of our lives, we continuously gain knowledge through our experiences which is the basis of forming our goals, purpose and attitude. It could be said that what we are able to achieve in the present is directly related to the accumulation of these experiences. However, in losing his mentor back then he might have missed out on something along the way.
At this age, with us being together on the same page, we hope our journey will give him a new point of view and answers on what defines “ideal” as an individual. We also believe that our perspective will give our readers tips on how to be an “ideal” individuals. Like how history tells us that something remains through the bond from generation to generation, we also believe that whatever we have gained should not just stay with us, it needs to be passed down to those close to us.
In connecting with one another, we believe we could be a collective that can participate in the greater good by sharing our thoughts and establishing a new community using co-existence as the key.
Our personal ambition is to communicate with like-minded people and globally inspire as many people as possible about things that we are passionate about.
Helping you to get to know one particular side of Japan in turn will bring additional excitement for our own country.
We think that it is mandatory as not just Japanese citizens, but professionals, to also broadcast who and what we are to the world. If we are proud of our home country, we need to step forward to create and be a part of a movement where we can all wholeheartedly represent Japan.
Thanks for taking the time to participate in this with us, and any questions or comments are always appreciated.
