Unsung heroes abound, but no one really hears about them and their altruistic deeds.

Why are these people’s noble deeds for the betterment of humanity unreported and unnoticed by the greater world?

These unheralded saints do not do this honourable work for fame or glory, but as the deepest inner calling to something higher than self.

One would have never know of Dr. Tetsu Nakamura, if he had not been assassinated in Afghanistan.

This is where he dedicated his precious life to improve the living conditions our long-suffering Afghani brothers and sisters.

This is the distressful headline which brought this Japanese martyr to one’s attention:

‘He Showed Us Life’: Japanese Doctor Who Brought Water to Afghans Is Killed

Dr. Nakamura was a physician and honorary Afghan citizen who headed Peace Japan Medical Services (PMS), an aid group.

First arriving in the region in 1984 as a volunteer at a hospital in Peshawar, Pakistan he treat patients with leprosy and Afghan refugees fleeing the Soviet–Afghan War.

Through his time spent there, Dr. Nakamura identified malnutrition as a root cause for the health issues in the region, and from then onward broadened the scope of his work into agriculture and irrigation, and focused on building canal projects in eastern Afghanistan.

2017 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award

He drew inspiration from the irrigation canals built in his native Fukuoka more than 200 years ago without the aid of modern equipment.

Philosophically he stated, “One irrigation canal will do more good than 100 doctors.”

He also said: “A hospital treats patients one by one, but this helps an entire village. I love seeing a village that’s been brought back to life.”

Moreover, he also wisely declared: “Weapons and tanks don’t solve problems. The revival of farming is the cornerstone of Afghanistan’s recovery.”

No doubt true to his Japanese agrarian heart along with the humanitarian living within him, he understood the incredible power of unity when a community comes together for the good of all and work to produce food.

Sadly, Dr. Nakamura was fatally shot in a targeted killing on December 4, 2019 in Jalalabad, Afghanistan.

These attackers also killed five others of their own Afghani brothers and sisters.

One can not fathom the devastation brought upon the affected families losing their bread winner, along with the dreams of a better life for their family on the way out of poverty.

Indeed this was senseless act of violence against a man who dedicated much of his life to helping the most vulnerable Afghans.

One can never know the darkness and evil residing inside the hearts of the assailants to carry out such a despicable act.

Is it a deep seated believe in a medieval dogma, indoctrinated from childhood, teaching hatred towards other because they are different?

Who knows, perhaps this vile act was simply carried out in exchange for one of the most powerful motivators of this material world; money.

Regardless, Dr. Nakamura’s incredible gift to the Afghani people, and the countless strangers’ live he touch with his divine work will far outlast any faceless and nameless assassins.

Dr. Nakamura was laid to rest in his hometown Fukuoka on December 11, 2019.

Japan Yes, France No?

Japan Yes, France No?

One was shocked and dismayed when a large display of the controversial product RoundUp, made by Monsanto (acquired by Bayer) became available at the local home center.

This problematic herbicide with the active ingredient glyphosate has its fair share of detractors globally, as well as famous lawsuits related to the health risks associated with glyphosate, including cancer.

shocked face

The sheer stupidity of the Japanese bureaucrats and agencies involved in the approval of this product for sale in Japan is breathtaking.

Now why is one calling the Japanese government and bureaucrats stupid?

It’s because they are.

エリートはこうしてウソをつくー官僚たちの不都合な真実

Not having an original thought in their entire life, the only thing these dull and witless robots of the system have been able to do successfully is to memorize the answers to a difficult government employee exam.

Not thinking about the consequence on the health of the Japanese population, including their own families, they rubber stamped the approval of this controversial agricultural herbicide, only then to be sprayed upon the food supply of Japan, without a further thought.

One views these lackeys as not only being stupid, but lazy and incompetent as well.

Now, dear reader one might be asking, why would one say such a thing about the servants of Japan?

The proof is in the pudding!

論より証拠

RoundUp was banned in France in January 2019 following a court ruling judging that the regulator at the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety had not given due weight to safety concerns when they approved the product in March 2017.

Does this not make one wonder what gifts were bestowed by the aggressive American corporation upon the greedy members in charge on the French side to making this extremely appalling decision letting this questionable, yet very profitable chemical onto sacred French soil?

The ban went into effect immediately, and the court’s decision cited research by the French government body, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, which concluded that it is “probably carcinogenic” to humans.

glyphosate ban

Speaking of the cancer risk from glyphosate, there was a landmark judgment against Monsanto and RoundUp in the U$A.

In fact, in 2018, an American citizen, Dewayne Johnson, who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was awarded $78 million after a jury in San Francisco found that Monsanto had failed to adequately warn consumers of cancer risks posed by this herbicide.

Mr. Johnson routinely used two different glyphosate formulations in his work as a groundskeeper, RoundUp and another Monsanto product called Ranger Pro.

Still, Japan has welcomed RoundUp and its active ingredient glyphosate with open arms, as there are now walls of it at the home and garden centers which dot the landscape of Japan.

Walls Of RoundUp

Furthermore, with the changes in the dietary habits of the Japanese to processed food, along with the continuing proliferation of the chemicals permeating every facet of Japanese life, it’s no wonder the Japanese are seeing vast increases in autoimmune disease, dementia, and cancer.

Could it be the chemicals in processed food steals life expectancy from the Japanese, and are the root cause of these unfortunate negative heath consequences cursing the Japanese?

Perhaps we can look across the Pacific ocean and observe the health conditions of our American brothers and sister to forecast the future health trend of the Japanese.

Doesn’t look very promising now does it?

Take a look at the back of the package one is about to purchase and read the ingredients.

What is in your food

That’s right, most of the ingredients of these kinds of product are unrecognizable and should therefore be avoided if at all possible.

Perhaps one will then realize a relationship between chemicals in food, and unpleasant medical conditions.

Here is a true story:

Years ago, one checked mother-in-law’s fridge for any nasties that slipped in unnoticed.

Aghast, one found they were still using……margarine.

Mother-in-law was pre-diabetes at that time, and one immediately requested them to stop eating margarine, which of course is filled with trans fats.

toxic trans fats

As sure as the sun shines off puddles after rain, mother-in-law never got diabetes.

I look at this as proof that dietary changes can leading to more positive health outcome, as well as reversing chronic ailment, which now plague the Japanese by the millions.

Seeing these negative health trends, a few years ago the decision was made to pivot one’s company into an organic fruit, berry, and vegetable powder importer and distributor.

Also, with a strong belief in the health benefits of hemp based foods, eternegy also imports hemp based products to support those desiring to live a healthy, long, and fulfilling life.

Remember, you are what you eat, so eat wisely.

Just like any other country, Japan has its share of crime. In particular, the swindling of the elderly has been particularly problematic over the last several years.

What is the most incomprehensible, and is a very common swindle in Japan is what’s known as the “ore ore sagi”.

This is unique to Japan as the Japanese language facilitates cheating old people into thinking that person on the other end of the phone their child or a relative.

The cold call to the vulnerable and elderly plays out like this.

Swindler: Hello hello grandma it’s me! (In Japanese this makes sense: obaacha ore desu.

Victim: Taro, is that you Taro?

Swindler: Yes grandma it’s me “Taro”

Victim: What is going on?

Swindler: I’ve gotten into an accident and they need me to give them some money so they don’t call their mafia friends. Can you please give me $30,000.

Victim: Oh no! That is horrible, what should I do.

The swindler then sets up a cash withdrawal or some kind of a pick up of the cash.

These old people are gullible and more often than not often lonely.

Hearing about these sick and nefarious swindlers take advantage of the Japanese elderly really breaks my heart.

Many years ago, my son received a phone call on his Mobile telephone. These swindlers said that he accessed a whole bunch of adult sites, and that that he needed to pay ¥300,000 or they would tell on them to their parents. This was a baldfaced lie

Luckily enough, I raise my child so he would come to me with any kinds of problems and we would figure them out together.

I took over the phone, and then dress down this piece of garbage with what I thought about him and his ilk.

Interestingly enough, his cellular telephone number was recorded in my son’s phone, and after he hung up on me, I called him back to telling even more exactly what I thought of him.

I even offered him the opportunity to come and collect the money from me directly.

He declined.

Japan: A place unlike any other, and no where else in the world could this kind of swindling take place.

The elderly of Japan lose literally billions of yen to these types of swindles every year with no sign of letting up.

Always keep you wits about you, and as I know for fact first hand, trust only comes after you verify the person and their intentions.

The take away for today: verified trust.

Hikikomori Rampage Shocks Japan

Hikikomori Rampage Shocks Japan

A couple of weeks back there was a horrific attack on innocent school children and the accompany adults. A blatant loss of innocent life in such a matter is this is truly a heartbreaking story. There’s some specific Japanese thumbprints on this particular crime.

The perpetrator of this heinous crime, committed suicide after taking the lives of a man and a child, lived with his aunt and uncle in a situation in what is known as “hikikomori”.

Normally these are men in their 40s and 50s, and to a much lesser degree women. They have no job, no hope, and no future. They sit locked away in the rooms, with room and board provided for free by the unfortunate elderly burdened with taking care of these mentally ill citizens of Japan.

In case you didn’t hear the story: this deranged individual took a knife and stabbed several children and adults while rampaging in a suburb of Tokyo.

Most unfortunately, on May 28, 2019, an 11-year-old girl, and a 39-year-old high level diplomat who spoke fluent Burmese, found the end of their life on the street at the hands of the deranged madman.

This story becomes all the more extreme, if not so much more macabre and bizarre if I do say so myself.

Then, on June 1st, an elderly high level retired bureaucrat took his own son life by stabbing him to death in their home.

This distraught father’s son recently moved back home and had been violent towards them.
Moreover, he was using threatening language towards neighborhood children yelling “if you are being so noisy I will kill you all”

Hideaki Kumazawa, 76, told investigators that he “thought my son might harm others” after finding out about the stabbing rampage last Tuesday.

This honourable Japanese father then made the decision to stab his son to death in order to mitigate any kind of shame coming onto the family with a copycat murder.

I can feel the pain and suffering of this Japanese father deep in my own heart, as I know how these people think.

He made his only choice, and that was to mitigate the problem by killing his son so not to have shame brought onto their family,

In all probability this man who took the life of his own child came from fine pedigree.

In case you have ever doubted this, honour and dignity are paramount in this vertical society (tateshakai: a society in which vertical relationships are regarded as important)

If you asked the Japanese what they think of this incident, I believe you will get an unexpected answer across the spectrum of demographics.

Asked an older Japanese person, if this man did the right thing in taking his own sons life, and see what answers you get.

I don’t know this for sure, but I suspect that a lot of elderly Japanese believe that this former diplomat (Japanese ambassador to the Czech Republic from 2005 to 2008) did the right thing by taking his son life.

What do you think about this?

Land Of The Rising Son aims to examine these phenomena, and to seek ways to help these families as the resident and citizens of Japan work together as a community toward a harmonious and meaningful future.
