Consensus building on ocean use has grown in importance with the diversification of ocean use through efforts such as the development of offshore wind farms. The University of Tokyo Ocean Alliance published its own guideline on this topic in October 2017, based on the outcome of research conducted with a grant from The Nippon Foundation. This article will introduce the background for creating the guideline followed by its main contents.

Communicating the History of Modern Japanese Shipping?The NYK Maritime Museum and NYK Hikawamaru?

Kumiko SUZUKI
Curator, NYK Maritime Museum

The NYK Maritime Museum and the NYK Hikawamaru received the 10th National Maritime Award in 2017 for their outreach activities in communicating maritime ideas through the history of Japanese shipping in the modern era. Along with the Hikawamaru, which in April 2018 marked 88 years since it was built, the museum has worked for over 25 years to convey modern Japanese shipping history through the conservation and use of artifacts. The museum continues to raise awareness of the Japanese shipping industry in an effort to increase the number of people who would like to become sailors and contribute to the future of Japanese shipping.

Putting "Dreams and Spirit" into Shrimp Crackers

Toshio MITSUDA
President and Representative Director, Keishindo Corporation

Since the founder of the Keishindo Corporation, Keisuke Mitsuda, perfected the first shrimp cracker (ebi senbei) in Japan more than 150 years ago, the company has continued to refine its flavor. The company has always placed importance on nature and the changing seasons, the Japanese spirit of valuing each of the four seasons, and the native traditions and culture cultivated by preceding generations. Through creating flavorful shrimp crackers, we hope to contribute to lasting prosperity in the shrimping industry, and also communicate the Japanese spirit to future generations.
