This post starts with the comment by Joi Ito:
“I’m not trying to trivialize the issues that are being protested by the Chinese, but if they are trying to cause change in Japan, maybe some of them can try to talk to their allies in Japan like me instead of trying to force or scare into submission their enemy. A reasonable bridge building effort between activists and experts on both sides to try to address the issues through tactical maneuvers might be useful.”
It is not as if some activities do not exist already for a long time. So here I will go back and translate from the works of Yu Jie (‰ΩôÊù∞). Previously, I had translated excerpts from his Japan travelogue about the worst of Japan in the post An Ambiguous Nation. There, I noted: “I remind you that this is one encounter out of many, and Yu met other Japanese who feel quite differently. Let me repeat again — there are Japanese people who are completely different and inspires my admiration.” So here, I am going to let Yu Jie tell you about some of those admirable people.
