Message from Chairman


The course of one’s life drifts. Accompanied by wave-like emotional ups and downs of his feelings; delight, anger, sorrow and pleasure, which one cannot hold down by himself.  Such is life!


Without staying only as his inner affairs, spreading over living space having relations with other people, such state of mind of one’s daily life. This is pulsatory repetition of the differing emotions; delight, anger, sorrow and pleasure, may interweave warp and weft of human relations. Whether conscious or not, being influenced by words, deeds and their resultant behavior (energy) originating out of the human nature within himself.


Last year, extremely strong emotion of ‘sorrow’ spread over Japan.  Tsunami and after-quakes triggered by Tohoku district offshore quakes, which occurred on March 11, 2011 provoked catastrophic disaster there.  A colossal number of precious human beings were sacrificed by the disaster named later “The Great East Japan Earthquake”.


I mourn the loss of the lives.  At the same time, we are prepared for extremely strong ‘words & deeds’ and behaviors (energy) to conquer this catastrophe.  As the rest of people do, RBA International boosts every effort that people of the devastated area exert to the rehabilitation.


In our society, there is no existence of ‘myself only’ independently of troop.  One man’s happiness doesn’t exist, either.  Individual’s happiness can be brought by happiness shared by the one and others.  RBA International, therefore, does activities wishing for happiness shared among people.


We at RBA International express our hearty gratitude for Japan Self-Defense Forces to work double tides and to undertake rescue and recovery for the people, never staying on the sidelines.  Learning the spirits of Japan SDF, RBA International promises to work hard for Japan.


There is no terminal station for the activities of RBA International.  Our activities do not lie in the action of climbing to the peak of mountain, but lies in travelling across chain of mountains.  No exaggeration to say continuing to travel across chain of mountains is simply the activities of RBA International.


This year, too, I swear we bend our steps boldly to journey of sympathy we share with other people and of touching rapport we try to bridge with them.

She is an art painter, fully utilizing materials originated in Japan such as Japanese paper and Japanese ink and its style is like combination of sumi-e and western paintings.

Sometimes calligraphy-brush characters are added as special messages appealing to visitors’ instinct. Having studied in France in 1970s, she is an official membership of "Le Salon" in Paris, also a visiting professor of Xian Conservatoire in China.
Firmly retaining posture as quoted "I am absolutely a Japanese, wherever I take my stand even in foreign countries", she will continue to produce works which impassion many people across boarders. Resonating in harmony with her attitude, RBA International started an overseas coverage, publication and supporting activities, in order to make her existence and works widely known.

The final match of Wednesday block of the 22nd RBA Baseball Tournament took place at Yokohama Stadium on May 25th, and Asahikasei Homes won its 10th championship at 7-0, with straight five-year win. While sending two pitchers in relay, flawless batting brought an overwhelming victory for Asahikasei Homes. Last year with the identical opponent, Sumitomo Forestry lost the game at 1-2 with an extra inning of sudden death, and therefore they tried to get their revenge this time, but in vain.

RBA International offers preliminary and follow-up lessons for internship to Saitama Prefectural Koshigaya Comprehensive Technical High School.
Recipient enterprise, Daisan Kikaku, Inc. receives three students from Saitama PKCT High School.

【January 18th, 31st - February 4th, 8th】

RBA International conducted two lessons before and after the internship, directed to 270 students in the 2nd year of Saitama PKCT High School. Taking it into account that it is inadequate to let them ordinarily experience just simulation for such a short time as a working person only by visiting recipient enterprises, Chairman Kume gave the lectures as an extraordinary curriculum of the school, meeting with the schoolmaster’s approval beforehand. With the appropriate contents of internship designed for the high school students by Daisan Kikaku, the company also took in three students in the 2nd year of Saitama PKCT High School.
