TSURU, Tsuyoshi
(Professor, Institute of Economic Research, Hitotsubashi University)
A Talk about Denmark: A New View
In October 1911, Kanzo Uchimura, an important Christian thinker of the Meiji era (1868–1912), gave a series of interesting talks at the Imai Kan (then in Kashiwagi in north Shinjuku and later moved to Meguro; it is now the Seisho Kodo). The talks were later collected and published as a book, The Greatest Legacy: Talks about Denmark, by Iwanami, one of Japan’s leading publishing houses. Uchimura’s book is rich with insights.
Now I would like to follow in Uchimura’s footsteps by writing about my own experiences in Denmark while adding my own insights. Today, under the influence of social media such as Facebook and Instagram, it has become common to post photos with short comments. I too have become a little poisoned by this style, but in this case, I wish to try to express myself solely through the power of words.
