Thought of the Evening TM Tohyama
“忖度(sontaku)” was selected as the best vogue word of the year.
It is difficult to translate “sontaku” into English because “sontaku” represents Japanese way of thinking.
“Sontaku”, guessing one’s feeling without words, is nonverbal and incomprehensible in a sense.
Now, no more nonverbal communication. Let’s talk more!

- Three men were washed up on an uninhabited island after drifting.
Then big genie appeared in front of them. The genie said “I will grant you three wishes.”
Wishes of two men were favorably answered. Then, what was the last man’s wish?
