We are Tomodachi (Vol.28) from the Government of Japan

“We Are Tomodachi” is an official online magazine that introduces Japan’s attraction and its deep multifaceted ties with the rest of the world to our country’s friends (tomodachi) across the globe.

In the current issue, we introduce to you three museums in Japan that impart the spirit of peace and humanity to future generations by conveying the decisions and actions of Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat serving at the Japanese Consulate in Kaunas, Lithuania during World War II. Seeing the plight of refugees from Poland and other European countries fleeing Nazi persecution, Sugihara issued a large number of transit visas to such refugees and is remembered for saving the lives of approximately 6,000 of them.

We also showcase a Japanese government initiative called Sport for Tomorrow, which among other efforts supports a project seeking to achieve reconciliation among different ethnic groups after the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina by using the power of soccer.

In addition, the 48th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting was held in Davos, Switzerland at the end of January.

For this occasion, this issue includes a contributed article on the lasting growth of the Japanese economy due to Abenomics, written by Boston Consulting Group President and CEO Rich Lesser, as well as special features on the outstanding management philosophies and technologies of some of the small and medium enterprises that form the backbone of Japan’s economy.



また、日本政府が進める、Sports for Tomorrowというイニシアティブについてもご紹介しています。これには、ボスニア・ヘルツェゴビナにおける内戦後の民族間の和解を、サッカーの力を通じて実現しようという取り組みも含まれています。
