I am Yoshida, president of Yamada Shusei, a professional apparel garment repair company in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture.
On January 24, the U.S. magazine Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, analyzing threats such as nuclear war and climate change, announced the time remaining on the Doomsday Clock, which places the end of humanity at midnight, as "90 seconds. For the three years until last year, the clock had maintained 100 seconds, the shortest time since its creation in 1947, but unfortunately the shortest time was renewed following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
In the repair business, there is a time limit to whether or not a product can be returned to the normal sales channels. Likewise, the human race has a time limit, and each of our lives has a time limit as well.
In our daily lives, we believe that humans control the life and death of "things. Then, how about the life and death of human beings? And what about our own life and death?
In this sense, we are "living beings" who do not know what will happen tomorrow. That is why it is important to respect the existence of "things," "humanity," and "ourselves," and to face each "time limit" without turning our eyes away. And in the repair business, we will do our best to make the most of as many products as possible.
