1. The fact that Ohshima is a Sister Island to the Big Island of Hawai’i

What motivated the president of this company to move to Ohshima was the island’s history of its bridge with its sister city, Big Island in Hawai’i. This is one of the oldest sister city pacts in the world. The friendship of the people in these two islands has deepened over time. Another reason the president of this company felt this kinship was because she had lived in Hawai’i and honored Aloha spirit, and this also encouraged her to move to Ohshima.
The handmade Kingdom of Hawai’i flag which was said to be up at Iolani Palace was entrusted to Ohshima-machi as proof of assurance of this tie and a commemorative token to connect Japanese Hawai’i immigrants and Japan and proof of everlasting sister-city hood. In January 2006 when Ohshima-machi celebrated its 50th anniversary of township, over a hundred islanders visited the Country of Hawai’i and safely returned the Kingdom of Hawai’i flag after 44 years despite some challenging events.

This is to say that we recognized that friendship among world-wide islands is a treasure that holds global potentiality beyond nations and we value this resourcefulness for the future of humanity. In fact, on several occasions including the 50th and 60th anniversary of the Sister Islandship, as a member of the 000 corporate group, based on the island, we collaborated and still continue to collaborate in non-profit activities as well, i.e. volunteer work with the collaboration and understanding of other organizations.

2. The fact that Ohshima is a microcosm of the ancient currency of the Earth.

The purposes of corporate activities of 000 PLENUM Inc is to “implement” innovations that are necessary in order to realize our global society where we experience abundance to live together at various levels. With this as our goal, we have also developed diverse and comprehensive programs both seen and unseen. To fulfill this goal there is an appropriate and natural environment and it is indispensable to recognize and experience earth as a borderless ‘one’ or unified existence.

Currently, Japan has been undergoing de-popularization of rural areas, aging, decrease of numbers of children, weakened economics that common people experience that are bewildering, downward of community vitality, impoverished with depleted welfare. Ohshima is not an exception. Unless one looks at issues from a global viewpoint, things tend
to emerge such as staying in policy; methods are undertaken simply to sustain on a short term basis and are copycat methods applied randomly;
solely chasing after trends; making evaluations focusing on some temporal gains or loss, including when
coping with local or community issues. We think that innovation that is applicable to every field is indispensable. Corporations are encouraged to promote enhanced collaborations at a global scale. To explicitly present that this company has chosen to base its activities on a volcanic island is to suggest the quality of innovation and the scale of it. It is possible to have this as a foundation of intimacy and trust beyond language and culture.

3. The fact that Ohshima is in Tokyo

The fact that Ohshima belongs to Tokyo is the unique characteristic of Ohshima-machi in reality aspect. Although Ohshima is a de-populated island, it exists directly connected to Tokyo Metropolitan area with the shortest distance. This is to say that it is in a location close to the beat of Mother Earth, which provides the necessary conditions from the soft technological viewpoint (as described in #2) while it is capable to utilize the function of the city. This is possibly the most effective or efficient place among existing worldwide cities in terms of information processing and conveying innovations worldwide.

Also, many intellectual pioneers who have shifted their way of life to the “slow life” lifestyle beyond and regardless of the information processing rotation speed residing in Tokyo. The comprehensive capacity of youth, women, and the ones in their platinum age is enormously dormant in Tokyo. People deeply and fully understand the limit of the old paradigm. The degree of resourcefulness for world innovation is immeasurable. Each one of us who exists right now has enormous inner potential or capacity, that has not been calculated in monetary measures.

The time for open and flexible thinking and inspirational capacity to leap and to actualize has arrived. This is a time where the definition of “creator” is to become closer to its pristine meaning. Perhaps this is a time of post “Silicon Valley” or post “Davos Meeting” and others. We would like to confirm such tides in OHSHIMA in the simplest form.

Enjoying what “simple is best” and “small is beautiful” mean.
