The nuclear power plant accident at Fukushima Japan caused by 2011 March 11th earthquake and Tsunami was a terrible shock for me. As Japanese, nucleus disaster means more than anything. I have to have known how much it will be a serious, terrible and painful tragedy, especially as I had plenty of educations which came from nation historical experiences of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Not only the terrible disasters but it was a moment to wake up to rips of the society, consumer-driven future vision and its reality, as well as awake to the terms of our age of modernity. By cutting useless-looking sensibility, slowly but radically, the society was allowed to join in the capitalistic race of nuclear development competition.

After this painful incident, I had a lot of chance to think about "happiness", which is not like consumerism "comfortable", but inefficient, incalculable, almost nothing under the capitalistic context.
