今日は ! Welcome !
My name is Takashi SAITO.
There are so many Saito(s) in Japan. Both Saito and Takashi are also very common name here. My nickname is Tac and my grandson Yuma calls me Tacjii .
This illustration by Jim Hummel, an illustrator who is one of my relatives in San Jose, Calif., describes my profile.
I am holding a gardening tool in one hand and a tennis racket in another hand.
I think it was imaged my favorite hobby, gardening and tennis.
I am a warrior's face, Last Samurai (the title of moving picture) and this is a typical appearance of the Japanese really that it is a crotch in short feet. This might be Takashi Saito from the viewpoint of an American.
You Raise Me Up
I visited New Zealand for the first time in July 2019.
The light six―seater airplane took us to the majestic Tasman Glacier of Mt.Cook (3,724m), which was covered by deep snow. The wheels of the aircraft were installed on skis. We really enjoyed ourselves being there in the silvery mountains.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
"You Raise Me Up" is a wonderful lyric that gives me courage.
One of My favorite things is gardening.
You know the owner’s feeling, when you look at his garden.I am thrilled when I come up with a fresh idea for a small greenery garden where everyone can relax any time.
I am trying to create a place like the impressionist painter Monet’s garden (French artist) . I like to see small flowers scattered in other various green plants. Some people say my garden is like a tiny Amazon jungle. My philosophy for the garden is simply the desire to express natural beauty in the limited space.
This is my philosophy and philosophy for nature.
When I walk through the woods, my heart fills with love and I feel genuinely happy. I want to share what I see up here, What I know about nature, but most of all how it makes me feel.
My very small Hidden Garden Treasures

I have been enjoying to look at maps since I was very young. While I am traveling , it is fun to find the real world is just the simulation of maps.
Maps are used as various metaphors and have the role of drawing a strong image of the mind in the human through metaphor expressions. The map is also an illustration of the thought process. It can be said that it is the one that the idea necessary for the conception, creation, and the problem solving.
I have lived in Fujisawa City in Kanagawa Prefecture with my family. Fujisawa is a city with a population of approximately 430,000, located 50 kilometers from Tokyo.
Enoshima Island in Fujisawa City is open countryside to many places from which you can get clear views of Mt. Fuji.

Mt. Fuji is the highest volcano in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft) and is commonly used as a symbol of Japan. Mt. Fuji area has different faces in all four seasons. Every time you visit, you will find a new aspect of Mt. Fuji.
Mr. Sakakibara had a chance to see a panoramic view of Mt. Fuji with fresh snow on his way home from Ireland on October, 2019.
I was born in Qingdao, China on September 6, 1942 and raised in north part of Japan. My father Tomuji Kamegai was a pharmacists who worked for a pharmacy company of Japan. He was a brunch manager of Qingdao area. My mother Tomiko was an elder of five sisters who came from Toyama Japan. They were married in 1941.
I am 80 years old and a Professor Emeritus of Chuo University in Tokyo.
I completed my undergraduate studies and my graduate studies specializing in Information Science at Keio University (1969). I received my degree in Information Science at Keio University.
Between 1969 and 1984 I held my business appointment in computer industry of Toshiba as an engineer and a manager of systems design and development for database management systems and information retrieval systems.
One of my academic topics at the time of University was Concept Theory.
Why is Concept Theory necessary?
When people try to understand the world, they usually already have a general idea in place. This can be described as a concept theory framework (schema). In the past, learning through the schema of books was referred to as literacy. The word literacy expresses its source word, litera. This is a concept of abstracting subjects in characters, and a measure of the ability to interpret these characters so that they respond as close as possible to their concrete images in the real world. The purpose of literacy is not just the understanding of the letters on the surface level, but also the understanding of the structure of the deep underlying concepts. People have learned schema relating to thinking and worldviews in order to give meaning to the information theory are constantly coming into contact with.
