For those of you who don’t know who Mr. Arudou Debito is, please allow me to present the following links. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debito_Arudou https://ja.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%9C%89%E9%81%93%E5%87%BA%E4%BA%BA Having looked at both sites, I can say the Japanese Wikipedia article seems to be more thorough. However, the English Wikipedia article talks about the time when he led a protest in Nishi Ward, Yokohama in 2003 against the honorary granting of juuminhyou to Tama-chan the male bearded seal. The protesters even dressed up as seals. The protest was trying to raise the point that if juuminhyou could be granted to animals and cartoon characters, then there was no reason that it couldn’t be granted to foreign residents. Furthermore, in August 2009, Mr. Arudou began a campaign against a McDonald’s Japan advertisement featuring a burger mascot named Mr. James. Mr. Arudou’s grievance was that Mr. James perpetuates negative stereotypes about non-Japanese Caucasian minorities living in Japan. I can tell you that on English-speaking websites, Mr. Arudou is very controversial. The website reddit.com has entire topics devoted to bashing him. There are a number of people who hate his guts. There are people who think he has some legitimate points, but he resorted to extreme measures to get those points across. For the record, he is no longer living in Japan. He moved to Hawaii a number of years ago. Now he spends his time writing articles for The Japan Times. So I would like to ask you. What do you think of Mr. Arudou Debito? After all, Japan was the place where he spent decades of life living and leading protests, campaigns and so on.

    There are about 350 Holocaust museums in the world and among them the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem in Israel are famous. But did you know Japan has this kind of facility, too? The Holocaust Education Center in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture was built in 1995 and houses items related to the Holocaust that have been donated from around the world. Mr.Otsuka has been going to church since he was a child. As his pastor's way of living made a deep impression on him, he too became a pastor. A turning point in his life came when he visited Netanya in Israel in 1971 as a member of a chorus group. An old man came to speak to him in English when he was about to take lunch with other group members in a restaurant. "You are Japanese, aren't you? Would you plese sing a Japanese song?" After Mr.Otsuka and his group finished singing, the gentleman thanked them for it and began to talk. "You probably know the diary which my daughter wrote, don't you? I'm the father of Anne Frank." After this opportunity, a dialog between Mr.Otsuka and Mr.Frank began. "Peace will be born from mutual understanding. Please be a person who can do something to create peace in the world; do not only sympathize with the tragic death of Anne and other victims." Mr.Otsuka was moved by what Mr. Frank said and went to Israel to study Hebrew. He visited the concentration camps in Europe because he wanted to know more about the Jews and the Holocaust. Six million Jews are said to have lost their lives because of the Holocaust. Mr. Otsuka was shocked to know that among them were 1.5 million children. Since he wanted to show exhibits to Japanese children, he made up his mind to built a memorial center in Japan. Otsuka wrote letters explaining that he had little money for his project but plenty of passion and sent them to lots of people involved in the Holocaust and various facilities. After a while, packages came to him from all over the world : an inmate's uniform, a box containing ashes, and so on. Someone handed him a passport that was a memento of their family, and one painter offered pictures he had painted of the camp, saying, "You may take any pictures you like." Mr. Frank donated pictures of his family and some of the everyday items they had used. To make the exhibits accessible to everyone, Otsuka put English and furigana above every kanji character used in the explanations. A new building was opened in 2007. The room in which Anne hid and her diary were reproduced there. These are the only approved reproductions outside of Europe. After the death of Mr. Frank, one of his typewriters was given to the center and is now exhibited, too. Approximately 12,000 visitors have come to the center in the year since the new building was opened, twice the number before the renewal. All sorts of people, from kindergarten pupils to adults, visit the Holocaust Education Center. "This is a facility where not only will you learn the truth about the Holocaust, but you will also think about what you yourself can do to make peace for the world," Otsuka says. "I never heard Mr. Erank say anything hateful. I have been continuously questioning in my heart why the Holocaust occurred. Students from over 700 schools have visited the Holocaust Education Center. I hope all the children in Japan will visit it, and also wish that this center will be a place from which they are sending peace to the world, " Otsuka says.

I think that he’s an incredible dreamer, incredibly naïve, he’s incredibly smart in what he wants to be smart at he’s one of those guys that knows ten thousand little things but doesn’t know much about one big thing and it was really fun, it was really fun to read and... Again there was something inspiring about it, there was something child like about it. There was something oddly brave about it and the thing that was very cool about the part to me was that he’s a simple guy and in his simplicity he doesn’t over think the world. And so he just lets the world happen to him and I think that that’s a blessing a lot of the time. ある俳優のインタビューです。 自分の役柄について聞かれ答えているのですが、どうしても意味が理解できないんです。。。 長文ですが宜しくお願いしますm(_ _)m

    I started studying Japanese language in 1974, in a Tokyo university with many other foreign students. Although the tests and lessons were well-designed, I was soon quite frustrated and dissatisfied with my progress in that situation. Most of my classmates were also non-Japanese, so the dangerous tendency was to speak in English or French outside of classes. Except for the small number who wanted to "brush up their English," the normal Japanese students refused to associate with the illiterate foreigners. I soon found that I had gravitated to a small group of Koreans and Hawaiians, who agreed to speak only in Japanese. However, I felt that my Japanese was not likely to improve much without native speakers as models. I was depressed by the number of Americans concerned only with obtaining as much money, sex, marijuana, or media-coverage as they could obtain during their year in Japan, rather than really trying to appreciate the culture in which they were guests. So I began to look around for a more isolated university which would admit and teach Japanese to foreigners, but without the problems of Tokyo's "international set."

    In 1967, Hunter "Patch" Adams entered the Medical College of Virginia. He was a very bright student, but one of the professors did not like him. Patch loved fun andhumor and acted like a fool even in college. The professor said to him, "If you want to be a clown, join the circus!" In fact, Patch wanted to be a clown, but he also wanted to but a doctor-the best foolish doctor in the world-who really cares for his patients. When he was a medical student, Patch had a chance to visit very sick children in a hospital. He asked a girl if she was doing fine. But the girl didn't answer. He quickly put something red on his nose and began acting like a clown. The room was soon full of laughter, and all the children there felt better. Patch did many other foolish things. For example, he rolled down a hill with a patient who was suffering from mental problems. He even dressed like a wild animal for an old patient who had the dream of going hunting before his death.
