Dear Sir, 20 years later.


Twenty years later.

I wonder how the world will look like in 20 years’ time.

I’m sure they’ll be saying, “There was such a thing as Corona, wasn’t there?


Twenty years later, I’ll be….


Who lives in the room I used to live in?

Where and what are the members of that group doing back then?

We used to get together regularly at the end of the year, though.

Was living in a shared house really a reality?

Like a dream, not like reality. Like a worldly existence.

Things were good back then.

It was a good time.

Sometimes I get tired of myself saying such unclely things.

When I tell my children about those days, they are scorned.

I got tired of hearing it so much that they wouldn’t even talk to me.

My child’s coming-of-age ceremony is over.

I look at her from a distance and say, “You’ve gotten so big,” as if it were someone else’s business.

She said”Dad! Mom! I’m thinking of living in a share house!”

“The share house where my dad and my mom met and talked about.#


Kids have an oddly good memory.


She’s not listening, but she’s listening carefully.


I’m going to visit that shared house with my family for a viewing.


He outer walls have aged a bit, but as I step into the living room, the same smell from that time surges through me.

I look around the room as if my feet never touched the ground.

Even a single handrail on the stairs brings back memories.


“I’ll be right here!”

A loud voice came from down the hallway.

From the tone of his voice, she seemed to be quite concerned about it.

The room was the same as the one I was living in.


Share house for the first time living alone.

Good choice! – my daughter! 



I’d love to be in 20 years like this… lol



Twenty years in the future.

1,000 people will live on the moon and 10,000 people a year will enjoy traveling to the moon.

75% of cars on the road will be self-driving.

Telework will be the norm in Tokyo.

The number of deaths from air pollution will reach 7.5 million per year.

Japan’s population will fall below 100 million.





Ten years from now, you’ll be able to do this!

They say you’ll be able to do that too!

That’s great! I said.

It was exciting at the time, but when you live 10 years from now, you’ll see…what? Not so much.

Getting used to it is a scary thing.
