This site deals with culture-sensitive issues of health promotion in Japan, and in other countries, where people's individualities are formed differently from mainstreams of Western civilization. For example, in Japan, although people's individualities and identities are starting point of health promotion, these are sometimes concealed under the so called "group mentality", a form of collectivism. To help people to rediscover their unique individualities, I developed mental-mapping methods to facilitate dialogs in daily life. Under the belief of multiplicity of intelligence, I adopted tactile cues as well as visual and verbal cues for the mapping. Even under the prevailing atmosphere of group mentality, trend toward individualism and individualization is also obvious in this country. To challenge the negative aspect of individualism, I encourage people to share the uniqueness of life, and to rediscover the joy of human networking toward more meaningful and humanistic health promotion and education.
