Join me for Super Fitness@Kona, Big Island of Hawaii

On Feb 3, 2012, I became a member of Pacific Island Fitness in Kona, which was a birthday gift to myself.  I turned a half the age of how long I want to live.  The former half of my life is over and I am starting the latter part of my life, so, I needed to take better care of my body and health.

I have missions to accomplish.  I want to  keep working to create more sustainable society here in Kona and in Japan.  There is so much to do and I need at least 30 or more healthy years to accomplish what I started doing before I leave this body.

 Even though we had grown most of what we ate in Japan organically and also trying to do the same here in Kona, Hawaii, which is quite healthy, you still need to exercise regularly to keep your body in good shape. I confess I have stopped all kinds of sports for nearly 30 years.
I used to dance in my teens and 20s, but after I started working, I stopped dancing completely.  So, I had less muscle and more fat when I joined the club.  And 3 months later, I think I have more muscle and less fat.

SO, joining a fitness club in another country(USA) was quite a big leap for me, but my Japanese friend in Kona invited me to a ZUMBA class, which I had no idea what it was, but now I enjoy so much. I had never heard of ZUMBA in Japan. It is like an aerobics dancing in Latin Music.  I love latin music so it was perfect combination for me: dancing in latin music.
  One of my ZUMBA instructors is Naomi.  Her stamina is amazing and she has such a beautiful and powerful body, and of course, as a woman,  I wanted to be like her.
Well, I am much older, but it is better to be late than never to start something you enjoy and also good for your health.

So, if you want to visit Hawaii and to join me to Super Fitness retreat, please e-mail me.

The retreat is 7days(6nights) minimum and longer, that includes lodging, 2 raw food meals a day, fitness club (class) fees, pick up at the airport, transportation to and from the club daily, taking you to the airport (Kona).  Gen and I will share what we have learned from Bay NVC (Non Violent Communication) and I will lecture on food and environment, tips on how to stay healthy in more contaminated world (more radiation and chemicals). We also will check what your body is wanting (and not wanting) to be healthier by LET (Life Energy Test).

I look forward to having you at our house in the center of Kona, Harmonics Healing Hawaii. Our garden is small but we grow many vegetables and fruits, and even started growing rice!  You can experience an abundant life and nature of Hawaii in town!

You will witness how much you can grow in a small garden, and you will be inspired.  And by the end of this retreat, you will be energized, more healthy and maybe in better shape than before.

Celebrate Japan's ZERO nuclear power plant day: May 5, 2012

I am so thrilled and overjoyed by the fact on the midnight of May 5, 2012 Japan time, Hokkaido Electric Company will shut down Tomari #3 nuclear reactor for the regular check up, meaning the last operating nuclear power plant in Japan is stopping.

 We have 54 nuclear plants in Japan and now only one plant in Hokkaido is operating, no plant in Honshu, Shikoku and Kyusyu islands are operating, which is a surprise to many people around the world.

 They ask, "How can Japan manage without nuclear power? It has no other energy and needed nuclear energy to meet its demand!".

 Well, the truth is that every nuclear power has its back up power plant and we do not need to use nuclear power at all in Japan if we chose so.  Even without using these back up plants, by operating existing hydro and fossil fuel power plants, we have enough capacity to cover Japanese energy demand.

 This fact is finally getting to be known to ordinary citizens, who have been deceived over 3 decades. We just believed we could not live without nuclear power plants as we have been told so for too long by too many sources: governments and media.

 But it was not TRUE at all.

In fact, after 3.11 Fukushima accident 2011, Tokyo electric company has been supplying enough energy with most of its nuclear power shutting down since 3.11. They have only 3 nuclear reactors operating out of 17 reactors after 3.11, 2011.  We have had no energy shortage since then.

They used natural gas, petroleum, coal and hydro power instead. I would prefer they increase natural gas combined cycle power plants as they are the most efficient existing and reliable energy sources in Japan.

How long have I been waiting for this day of ZERO nuclear power plant in Japan?---For decades.

Since the day I first learned about the danger of nuclear power plants and its waste, which we have no place to put or no technology to manage.

Since the day I learned nuclear power plants needed workers always exposed to some amount of radiation.

Since the day I learned about Japan's nuclear reactors were not strong enough to withstand big earthquakes over 600 gals, and Japan's big earthquakes exceed 600 gals.

Since the day I learned about the children living around nuclear power plants are more susceptible to leukemia and cancer even if there is no accident, as small amount of radiation is released every single day to the environment.

May 5 in Japan is Children's Day. I think this is the best gift Japan can give to the world children and future generations.   So, please join us for the big celebration.  I mean to ask/help our government to go more sustainable and ecological energy choices.  Join me in this effort.

The zero operating nuclear power plant in Japan does not mean that our government gave up nuclear power. It is just the regular check up, and they would like to restart operation as soon as they have agreements from local governments (governors) that have nuclear power plants, such as Fukui, Shizuoka, Ehime, Niigata, Shimane, Ibaragi, Saga, Kagoshima, Miyagi, Aomori and Hokkaido.

But Japanese people have learned how much harm just one server nuclear accident can cause to the people's lives and nature. Our voice and awareness against nuclear power is raising steadily.

On that day here in Kona, Hawaii (May 4, 6pm), I am inviting people to celebrate the ZERO nuclear power of Japan at Harmonics Life Hawaii. If you live in/near Kona, please contact me by e-mail. It is a potluck so bring a dish you like.
