I am sending you the text of my speech made at the Fuji Declaration Symposium
held at the UN University on 12 May.
I have attached some photos taken on that occasion.
It is ecouraging to note that newly established maternal organizations like
“Rising Wemen,Rising World”of Ms. Scilla Elworthty and “the Soul of Women”
of Ms.Masami Saionji allow us to witness the commenced shift from the current paternal civilization

to life,the very lesson of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
With warmest regards,
Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland
