Eight former Hasegawa seminar students discussed their working conditions and family lives with their former teacher.
Hasegawa Seminar First Year Student Hirano Kyoko had a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony at famous Nogi Shrine which was established in November 1923 in honor of General Nogi Maresuke and his wife Shizuko.
Kisho Tsuchiya argues “East Timor Problem” was a tragedy caused by imposition of the logic of “national Self-determination”.
At the foot of Mount Fuji, former Hasegawa students discussed the challenges facing them as well as their employers. In the manufacturing sector, they found the need for their companies to transform as well as themselves, while in the service sector, they felt the high expectations imposed on them.
They spent several hours until mid-night discussing their roles and challenges they had faced in their work, work-life balance, and universal values in enhancing their career as well as their life.
On 29 November 2014, an annual OB/OG reunion dinner was held at cafe carat. This year, it was organized by Ms. Minako Ishikawa and Ms. Yui Narikawa who are the seventh year students of the Hasegawa seminar. 34 former students kindly came and enjoyed this party. As usual, they introduced themselves and talked to each other about their recent activities. After that, Professor Hasegawa gave a presentation about his activities in 2014 as well as some messages to seminar students. He kindly mentioned the way how to survive such a globalized competitive society and how to get happiness. We also decided that the next reunion party will be held by the second year students of the seminar. All of us seemed to enjoy the dinner and miss the days of seminar activities with Professor Hasegawa. (Minako Ishikawa)
