(English follows after Japanese)


人類は遥か昔に誕生して以来、生と死のサイクルを繰り返してきました。人々は文明を築き、戦争、パンデミック、不況を経験してきました。その一方でまた、人類は技術革新や学術的な発見を通じて発展してきました。インターネットやスマートフォンが到来してから、急速に私達の生活は変わり続け、進歩し続けています。私達のライフスタイルや人とコミュニケーションを取る方法が変わりました。また情報を集める手段を一変させ、膨大で様々な情報にアクセスすることを遥かに容易にしました。技術は日々進歩し、加速度的に私達の生活に溶け込んできています。なぜ、私達はこんなことをしているのだろうか? 一体何のために? 私達はどこへ向かっているのだろうか?












Human beings were born in the dim and distant past. Since then, we repeat the cycle of life and death. People have built civilizations, and gone through world wars, pandemics, and recessions. However, humankind has also been developing through innovations in technology and academic discovery. Since the advent of the Internet and smartphone, our lives have been changing and improving rapidly. The way we live our lives and how we communicate with people has changed. It has also transformed the way we gather information and made it much easier to access an enormous variety of information. Technology is making progress and integrating into our lives at an accelerated pace. Why are we doing this? What for? Where are we going?


Three years ago, we never expected the life that we are experiencing right now. The pandemic has had a huge influence on our world. People have passed away, suffer from aftereffects, and have lost their jobs. Companies are filing for bankruptcy. Violence is increasing. Our daily ordinary life has changed. It is not ordinary anymore. We are still fighting against this pandemic. This pandemic is not over yet.

Under these circumstances, I am always amazed at peoples resilience and strength. I would like to applaud peoples courage to get back up after a fall. I believe in humanitys potential and strength. So, lets keep on walking our own path even after a fall, instead of living in fear.


An old Hollywood actress once said, You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. We all have our own runway. Anything can happen. Anything is possible. Something once regarded as ordinary can be changed. I wish your runway would be bright, exciting, courageous, and that you walk it in your own way.
