Do you know how Iowa and Yamanashi became sister states? Read the heart-warming story from the State Historical Society of Iowa here:
https://www.facebook.com/IowaHistory/posts/1816122595223795

During the summer of 1959, two typhoons devastated Japan's agricultural region in Yamanashi Prefecture, northwest of Tokyo. When Iowans heard about the destruction, they donated 36 breeding hogs to Japan – known today as the "Iowa Hog Lift." The support helped rebuild Yamanashi's livestock industry, open trade relations with Iowa and create the Iowa/Yamanashi sister-state relationship.

On this date in 1960, Iowa Gov. Herschel Loveless sent this letter of appreciation to Lee Norris of Fremont for his contribution to the "Iowa Hog Lift."

The Japan Information Center is hiring two (2) part-time JET Program Interview Assistants for the upcoming JET Program interviews. **All applicants must be alumni of the JET Program**

1. One assistant will work from mid-February through mid-March. Please note the working period may change based on the timing of the interviews. The primary responsibility of this position is to assist with JET Interviews (tentatively, March 4 - 12), but other responsibilities pertaining to the JET Program and JIC activities will also be assigned. The pay is $15 an hour. The work schedule is somewhat flexible; however, during the JET Interview Week, you must work full days. This position will be primarily remote, though some days in-person at the Japan Information Center may be necessary (staff at the office will be minimal those days). JET Program Interviews will be conducted entirely remotely, as well. Applicants must live in the Chicagoland area and be able to commute to the Consulate in downtown Chicago as needed.
2. The other assistant will work in early March during the JET Interview Week (tentatively, March 4 - 12), as well as joining occasional preparatory meetings prior to the Interview week. Please note the working period may change based on the timing of the interviews. The primary responsibility of this position is to help us manage the online JET Program Interview site (likely Zoom) during interviews. The pay is $15 an hour. During the JET Interview Week, you must work full days. This position will be entirely remote. Applicants for this position are not required to live in the Chicagoland area.

Applicants for both positions must be alumni of the JET Program and have excellent organization and communication skills. Applicants must have their own home computer to use for work purposes, and must also be able to use Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Word, Excel, and Google Drive. Due to the remote nature of the work, applicants should be tech-savvy.

If interested, please send your resume to Austin Gilkeson at [email protected] by Thursday, January 21st. Please indicate which position(s) you wish to be considered for (ie: #1, #2, or both). We will hold interviews via Zoom for selected applicants the week of January 25th.

Shōjin Ryōri: Food for Thought, Food for Life

You may be surprised to hear that vegan and vegetarian diets in Japan date back hundreds of years—although they’re a little different from Western ones. Take a look at this article from Kokoro Care Packages to learn about #ShojinRyori, a type of Japanese cuisine rooted in the teachings of Zen Buddhism that also happens to be vegetarian (and often vegan): http://bit.ly/38Kjm6L

Our ideas about food (the foundation of life) truly shape the ways in which we live. And while there are many diets that take a philosophical or mindful approach to eating, there are few cuisines that embrace this concept as much as shōjin ryōri (精進料理.)

I am trying to make contact with the family of a captain yamaguchi who was with the Japanese imperial army assigned as the commander of the Japanese detachment in the town of Leon, Iloilo province in the Philippines around 1944. The reason fir my search is to thank his family for the way captain yamaguchi treated our father when he was executed by the Filipino collaborators. He tried to stop the execution but was unable to do so, then he gave our father a full military honor during his burial complete with a Japanese army escort to the cemetery and gun salute. He was a decent human being and we would like to let his family know that we are very grateful for what he did even though we were at war at that time. We never did know his first name. We will surely appreciate it if somebody could help us, then we will have closure.

Hello I'm wondering if anyone might help me find the family of Captain Hikichi who wrote this diary. He was stranded on the island of Biak August 31, 1944 till he was killed on December 7, 1944 by US forces. Perhaps his family might wish to have this document. I found this diary in my father's belongings after his death in 1996. Thank you.

If you are interested in the anthropology of Japan, you may be interested in this virtual book talk next Tuesday, 7/14. Michael Fisch - An Anthropology of the Machine: Tokyo's Commuter Train Network North Shore Unitarian Church Authors Series (on Zoom) Tuesday, July 14th, 2020 7 - 8:30 PM On July 14th, we invite you to join us for an evening with Michael Fisch and a discussion of his book, "An Anthropology of the Machine: Toyko's Commuter Train Network." With its infamously packed cars and disciplined commuters, Tokyo’s commuter train network is one of the most complex technical infrastructures on Earth. In An Anthropology of the Machine, Michael Fisch provides a nuanced perspective on how Tokyo’s commuter train network embodies the lived realities of technology in our modern world. Drawing on his fine-grained knowledge of transportation, work, and everyday life in Tokyo, Fisch shows how fitting into a system that operates on the extreme edge of sustainability can take a physical and emotional toll on a community while also creating a collective way of life—one with unique limitations and possibilities. An Anthropology of the Machine is a creative ethnographic study of the culture, history, and experience of commuting in Tokyo. At the same time, it is a theoretically ambitious attempt to think through our very relationship with technology and our possible ecological futures. Fisch provides an unblinking glimpse into what it might be like to inhabit a future in which more and more of our infrastructure—and the planet itself—will have to operate beyond capacity to accommodate our ever-growing population.
