Yes, it's over twenty years old but this movie is rich in cross-cultural themes that remain relevant.

Plan to have a seminar on 10/13 at Detroit area. It is very helpful for American, working for Japanese companies or having business with Japanese companies.

"Monozukuri" still has merit, but smarter marketing is a must for Japanese companies to grow overseas.

The characters used to write my name imply “intimate world” or “world peace”. Through my work experience in Japan, “Down Under,” in the Pacific, and the U. S. mainland, I have learned how the people of different cultures can work together productively.
