English Version (For English language visitors)

Ever since June, 2009, I have been trying to write more English so that I could make this website more international. For example, the top page of July and August, 2009, has its full page of English version and continuing ever since.

Although my English writing ability is not good enough, I intend to make it as much as I can because I have fervent desire to send information to the world as an atomic bomb survivor testimony speaker and writer. This makes me not to hesitate to make mistakes in writing English in this website. My priority is to send the messages. I would appreciate, therefore, if the visitors are kind enough to let me know of anything concerning my English composition skill. I always try to be a good student of English language.  

As you see, every 23 site has a few lines of its introduction in English, which is to make the English language readers could have an image what the site tries to tell. Especially "Profile in English" is the one I tried to introduce myself in detail. The contents of my website are occupied with almost my writing records in the past to the present. The volume of the contents, if edited in the form of book, would be as equivarant as seven or eight books.

It is almost impossible for me, therefore, to translate each of my writings into English. So, I decided to pick up limited writings to translate into English and display them here so the English language readers could better understand my thought and activities through those sites.    

Among the site buttons shown in the upper part of the site, the ones which are subject to be written new and more are "A-bomb survivor testimony", "Philippines information", "Hitorigoto (monologue)", "Exclusive", "Mail magazine", "Scrolling message (shifted to Message of the week)", "English top page history" and this "English version."

Among those writing-in-sites, "the top page" and "the message of the week" are the ones I write regularly in English, the former every month the latter every Monday. The "message of the week" was formerly made in the form of "scrolling message", but editing file problem made me to change it in the solid type and name it "Message of the week".

As my adding words to other sites are so much that I find it almost impossible for me to have its English translation. The "Hitorigoto (monologue)" and "Exclusive" are the sites where I could find good opportunity to express what in mind and soul in my everyday life here. Whenever I face something that I feel like letting my English language visitor know, I would like to have its English translation as a special version each time and put them in this site.

The mail magazine in Japanese is sent once about a month. I am thinking of making a special one in English which I send to non Japanese at random as an a-bomb survivor appealing for my testimony. This activity would be one of the cones for me to materialize my final mission in various meaning. It would be one of the strategies in the age of Internet.


For more detail information about my career click my atutobiography "A-bomb and Me", the title of which I have recently changed.

        Message of the Week (The Weekly English Scrolling Messages)
May 4, 2009    May 11, 2009   May 18, 2009   May 25, 2009   June 1, 2009  June 8, 2009   June 15, 2009    June 22, 2009   June 29, 2009   July 6, 2009   July 13, 2009   July 20, 2009    July 27, 2009 

     The weekly message in the form of "scrolling(running)" on the top page has been shifted from this stage to the usual written site because of the the editing incapability for the file management. This message is written both in Japanese and English with the title as follows. The name "scrolling", however, would be kept as it is because of the dificulty of changing so many links under the name of it.  My English composition skill is inmatured. 
The readers' advice is always welcome to

Big error occurred in the process of remaking the new folder for the editing so that the "Message of the Week" from October 11, 2010 to January 3, 2011, 11-item, have been lost never to be returned. Please imagine the contents by the titles. (Jan 7, 2011)
