Bringing religious studies to Japan’s venture start-ups, finding and understanding the oldest rock of Japan, leading the United Nations and foreign Press in Japan, finance at Japan’s largest automobile maker, working on overseas mergers and acquisitions with Japan’s trading companies, and in the other direction, working with foreign companies on acquisitions in Japan, teaching English as a preparation for future action in Japan, writing Novels, taking care of Japan’s Government finance, bringing Cambridge venture companies to Japan, European Revolutions, royalty and leadership for Japan’s Ministries, and many other topics were discussed this evening.

We started with a drinks party.

Celebrating 700 years history of The College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity

Professor Sachiko Kusukawa brought us best wishes from Trinity, and words of greeting from Professor Michael Banner, Dean of Chapel and Fellow for Development of Trinity. Michael Banner reminded us of Trinity’s 700 years of history, celebrating the Septcentenary of the Establishment of the King’s Scholars in the University of Cambridge, the Foundation of King Edward the Second, The Founding of the King’s Hall on 7 July 1317. Sachiko Kusukawa brought each of us a copy of the speech given by the Master, Sir Gregory Winter, to celebrate the Septcentenary.

About 2/3 of members moved to a restaurant nearby for nijikai, and three of us continued discussions at a sanjikai into the early hours…
