Eco Football

A lot of people like football. In the world, many children enjoy playing football. When I went to Tanzania last month, I saw some children kicking a ball which looked ‘beary’ different from a ‘normal’ football. Look at the ball this boy is holding!

The Oldest Piano in the World

Did you know that the world’s oldest piano was invented in the early 18th century? Look at this piano! This was invented by Bartolomeo Cristofori in 1722. The invention of the piano must have been an epoch-making event in those days.

Cool Silver!

Look at my bag! This shiny silver color is generating a cool atmosphere. It looks ‘beary’ nice if I put it on my shoulder especially in summer. Then, what do you think this bag is made of?

Happy Mother’s Day!

Our global mom, Yasuko, has a sister who has been making quilts for many years. Every year she displays her work at an exhibition held at the Osaka City Art Museum. This year, she exhibited a 1.7-meter square quilt entitled “Mother’s Garden.” Look at the quilt closely! Amazing! ‘Beary’ minute stitches on the big square! Red flowers are ‘beary’ beautiful!

The EEN family is everywhere! (1)

EEN stands for the Economic Empowerment Network. EEN is pronounced “ee (ii)-en.” In Japanese, “ee (ii)” means “good,” and “en” has two meanings: the first is “human relationships” or a bond decided by fate; the second is “circle.” Today, let me introduce an “EEN” that has been established in the community where I (= Bobby) and the EEN founder, our global mom (= Yasuko) live.

Beauty after Cherry Blossoms

Japan’s cherry blossoms are ‘beary’ famous, and the beautiful scenery of cherry blossoms is shown on TV worldwide. Every year, from the end of March to the beginning of April, a large number of tourists visit Japan from all over the world in order to see cherry blossoms. In Japan, however, we have many varieties of spring flowers other than cherry blossoms. Even after cherry blossom petals have fallen from the trees, we can still enjoy lovely spring flowers. Look! Now, azaleas are in full bloom!

Spring has come!

Look! Now, cherry blossoms are ‘beary’ beautiful in Tokyo. After a shivering cold winter, spring has come!
