President's Column from yu:

Hazakai month

This summer, you must have heard many items of news about the long heat wave. It is September now, but you probably still feel very hot, as can be expected in Japan.
September is a subtle month. According to the calendar it is autumn. However, it is an extension of summer for people of today. With these conflicting terms, which idea must we have to live wisely?
I think September is a unique chance for me to complete my objectives for summer, while rousing myself to carry out my intentions for the autumn.
To make good use of this opportunity, I spend September traversing from the old to the beginning of something new.
