Message from Chairman


Bearing Torch for Children to be Born After 300 Years


Thank you very much for your usual support and cooperation extended to this organization.


It is getting more and more difficult to find within the country where we live, such model that “I wish to live the life that way.”


As long as we live in modern society, anybody shall live as a responsible grownup. Naturally enough, they should do so. Saying “Let’s hope for a life that is being taken good care of by others in the quest of happiness”, there are ceaseless numbers of people seeking for higher social standing and wealth. Among them, most successors became arrogant, and they invite irreparable social problems or fail in business, harboringa sense of despair, thus spending empty days with poverty in mind. In either case, the reality of this country is far from cultivation a dream for ambassador of the future, the children.


I was born and was raised in such a country. I have not been displaying myself with ornaments, but been burning this year, too, with passion for the exemplary lifestyle, just following my mother’s precepts that “If you wish to be happy, do good for others.” “If there is anything you can do for others, raise your hands first”, “Be such a person who can be attentive to the others”, and “Then, the deeper you are considerate, the more your way of thinking can be broadened.” “You will deserve to receive a lot of happiness, as your way of thinking is broadened.”


What is placed in front of you tends to look big and important; however there is more important and imminent thing, although it is geographically far away from you. Whilst becoming rooted in reality, we at RBA International are going to implement our activities to aim at creating the environment that grownups can practice “to be considerate of others” both domestically and socially, fixing our gaze at children to be born after 300 years.

In commemoration of The 25th Anniversary of Sino-Japan Peace & Friendship Treaty, the lottery of final match of RBA Baseball Tournament for China Ambassador's Trophy was held on September 2.

RBA Baseball Tournaments have been held every year with the aim of establishing both friendship and interchanges in the industry of housing builders and real estates and international exchange thru baseball games. As the 15th Tournament fell on the 25th Anniversary of Sino-Japanese Peace Friendship Treaty, then the original name of the tournament was placed with prefix of "Tournament for China Ambassador Trophy in commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of Sino-Japan Recovery of Diplomatic Relations", which were wholly supported by Embassy of PR China to Tokyo and Association of Foreign Friendship of China's People, in order to pray for further friendship between Japan and China.

The lottery of the final tournament was held at China Embassy to Tokyo, with Madame Mao Ya Ping, the wife of the Chinese Ambassador to Tokyo in attendance. It’s said to be first time to hold such an event of civil organization at the Embassy. At the 15th Tournament, Toshin, who took part in the tournament for the first time, won the overall championship. Making a trip to China, the team of Toshin is planning to strive for international exchanges thru baseballs games with those teams of elementary school and adolescent.

January 26-28

At Association of Foreign Friendship of China's People, Beijing, cosponsored by Association of Foreign Friendship of China's People, the largest civil diplomatic organization of China and RBA International, Tokyo-Japan, "Exhibition of Sino-Japanese Tea Ceremony and Flower Arrangement" was held.

The tea ceremony and flower arrangement in both Japanese and Chinese styles were demonstrated respectively. Visitors were served with tea just made and Japanese sweets. This event was broadly reported by local papers in China with banner headlines and was televised as well, which brought forth great repercussion, interesting quite a number of people profoundly. We have been able to perform a great role of international understanding and international exchange thru traditional cultures, appreciating both the cultural difference between Japan and China and sympathy that both countries can share mutually.
