General Reports:

Visiting the great “Ise” Japan:

The Ise Grand Shrine located in the city of Ise, Mie Prefecture of Japan, is a Shinto shrine dedicated to the sun goddess Amaterasu. Officially known simply as Jingū, Ise Jingū is a shrine complex composed of a large number of Shinto shrines centered on two main shrines, Naikū and Gekū.

The Inner Shrine, Naikū, is located in the town of Uji-tachi, south of central Ise, and is dedicated to the worship of Amaterasu, where she is believed to dwell. The shrine buildings are made of solid cypress wood and use no nails but instead joined wood. The Outer Shrine, Gekū, is located about six kilometers from Naikū and dedicated to Toyouke-Ōmikami, the god of agriculture, rice harvest, and industry. Besides Naikū and Gekū, there are an additional 123 Shinto shrines in Ise City and the surrounding areas, 91 of them connected to Naikū and 32 to Gekū.

Purportedly the home of the Sacred Mirror, the shrine is one of Shinto’s holiest and most important sites. Access to both sites is strictly limited, with the common public not allowed beyond sight of the thatched roofs of the central structures, hidden behind four tall wooden fences. However, tourists are free to roam the forest, including its ornamental walkways after the Meiji period.

Tama-Chan

Tama-chan, is the lady that gave us the support with going around the places. She felt like air and so kindly assisted us filled the curiosity needs I had every steps of the way. The City of Ise is to me,  something that we all should see coming to Japan. Really something to see. Lots of tourists yes but all seem so calm and beautifully organized. Tama-chan is also an artist and she wants to teach “Paste” to her hometown in Ise and the city she lives in Hokkaido. I did not much talk about the Marine Foundation during the day as we visited but at evening time, just before departing I had a chance to say a few words. Surprisingly, I found myself setting up a program for the kind of ideas she had for the public wishes in trying to help other the best she could through Art. On that note she I think became interested in the communication system of the foundation somehow. Yes indeed, we will do something together. It’s very admirable when someone welcomes you to their town and places, making you feel at home and letting you discover new things through simple and kind gestures of unconditional giving.

Message by Mr. Yusuke Watanabe:

私たちマリンファンデーションが大切にしている考え方に、「ブランド」を持った財団、ファンデーションである、ということがあります。ブランドとは何でしょうか。私が考えるに、相手とコミュニケーションをとる際の、理由、動機になる部分だと考えています。

たとえば現在の一般的なサービスというのは、相手のサービスや機能の良し悪しについて対価を支払うという考え方が一般的です。サービス自体をジャッジするので、サイクルがパターン化しにくいと私は考えています。

そうではなくて、ブランドというのは相手への信頼、すなわち愛によって成立するコミュニケーションです。
サービスが素晴らしいにこしたことはもちろんありません。ですが、それ以上に、

あなたのことが好きだから。
あなたの心と私の心が通じ合っているから。

こういう理由で取引、コミュニケーションをすることを可能にすることが、ブランドの役割、効能です。
愛によって機能するこの取引を仕組みにおとして、関わるみんながハッピーになるシステムをつくりあげることが、
マリンファンデーションが他の組織とは大きく異なる点です。

Brand Ownership:

The “Brand-Ownership” position is very unique to our system.  Japan will accept only 36 brand co-owners. (Asia a total of 72) – Therefore the 5 continents will have each, 72 co-owners of the Brand of the Marine Foundation, making it a total of 360 members. Japan is the birthplace of the foundation, and so we would have more members here. We have 10 members fully registered while many on “reservation”.
