Request from Kenkichi, Japan

<a href="mailto:kmmura@gol.com">

Dear Mr. Bill Mollison,

I was working as a staff member of Sekai Kyusei Kyo (the religious 
organization introduced in Mr. Fukuoka's book "The One Straw 
Revolution") and doing various activities of nature farming about 20 
years.  Sekai Kyusei Kyo has been practicing nature farming over 60 
years.  The founder Mr. Okada met the founder of Rodale Institute.

Currently, I am a department head of translation division of a 
company in Tokyo and a member of Information committee of Japan 
Translation Federation (Non-profit organization).  Of course, I am 
very closely working with Sekai Kyusei Kyo and its affiliated 
organizations "Nature Farming International Research and Development 
Center", EM (Effective Micro-organism) Institute directed by Dr. 
Teruo Higa, and etc.

I am using a computer networking for a long years.  About four years 
ago, I accessed to alt.sustainable.agriculture and knew 
Permaculture.  I contacted with Dr. Taguchi and Ms. Koiwai, who 
translated your Permaculture designer's manual into Japanese.  About 
two years ago, I met Mr. Andrew from Australia, who is a farmer and 
running Pegasus networks, and exchanged the ideas of Permaculture.

Since I am using a computer for many years, I am using the Internet 
frequently.  I am hoping that Permaculture is included in my WWW 
Home Page and introduce Permaculture to Japanese people.  At the 
same time, I would like to introduce Permaculture activities in 
Japan to overseas.  Therefore, I would very much appreciate it if 
you could give me a permission of using your resources including 
your photo, writings, and contents in your publications.  After my 
work is done, I would like to link other people who put their 
Permaculture Home Page on WWW.

I await your kind reply.
