Happy new year. How are you doing on New Year's Day?
In our northern part of Shiga prefecture, it was a busy New Year's holiday with a record heavy snowfall at the end of the year.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by delays in delivery to our customers and business partners.
On the other hand, in spite of heavy snowfall, people who work in delivery, snow removal, water supply, electricity, medical care, welfare, etc. We appreciate all social and infrastructure workers.
Although it is in the northern part of Shiga prefecture where there is a lot of snow every year, this time there is little snow in the mountains, and there is a lot of snow in areas such as downtown where there is not much snow, so snow removal cannot catch up and it is covered in national news. It was a big mess.
Recently, there have been many record-breaking disaster news, such as once every 50 years and once every 100 years, and I feel that the climate is changing drastically.
As we know, People cannot control nature.
In recent years, thanks to industrial products such as automobiles, trains, and even rockets, it has become possible to go anywhere freely, and thanks to convenient home appliances such as air conditioners and refrigerators, even in the summer, cold ice can be enjoyed in the cold wind. You can spend your time comfortably in the house. Once I get used to such a life, I feel like I have controlled nature somewhere, and alas, I feel that I have become a world where I know the greatness of nature through disasters.
The words of Hippocrates were quoted in a New Year's card given by a teacher at a certain acupuncture and moxibustion clinic.
The farther away a person is from nature, the closer he gets to illness
Recently, acupuncture and moxibustion often have the same image as one, as they are used as a set with "acupuncture and moxibustion".
Acupuncture is an industrial product but moxibustion is an agricultural (natural) product.
Recently, I've heard the surprising story that some children think that fish are swimming in the sea with fillets, but food has become like an industrial product, and there is an opportunity to receive the blessings of nature. I also feel that it is decreasing.
I think that "moxibustion" is a great opportunity for those who can receive treatment at an acupuncture clinic to feel nature.
Therefore, we will reconsider what we can do with moxibustion and mugwort, and will continue to devote ourselves to helping to create a prosperous society together with nature while borrowing the blessings of nature without resisting nature. Thank you for your cooperation.
Wishing you and your family a happy year 2022.
