I am Yoshida, president of Yamada Shusei Ltd., a professional apparel garment repair group in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture.
Taikan Yokoyama, the great Japanese-style painter, is said to have painted as many as 1,500 images of Mt. Fuji during his lifetime, so Taikan is known as "Fuji".
Taikan's motto was "To be imperishable," a phrase attributed to his former master, Tenshin Okakura. It is said that this motto expresses the meaning of pursuing the infinite in art, which can never be completed.
The pursuit of the infinite is also very important for managers. A manager must keep moving forward toward the goal he or she is striving for. But that goal is like a never-ending journey, one that should be constantly pursued.
Fuji's formative beauty and ever-changing appearance attract many people, both in Japan and abroad, perhaps because of its dignity and majesty, which can never be said to have been mastered.
