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!
