The Samurai has landed
Dear Journalists fighting for freedom,
On the afternoon of Thursday, November 9, 2006, a lot of people who love Japan received a simple message:The Samurai has landed. It meant that Mr. Fujita Togo, the president of eHomes Inc., fulfilled a mission for freedom of speech and democracy in Japan.
For "Sith Lords" living in the dark side of Japan, "Darth Vaders" in Japanese mass media ignored this courageous message as they have done so many times in the past. Some Jedi Knights in Japan, however, stood up for sowing light where there is darkness.
Below are the attempts by the Jedi Knights to publicize Mr. Fujita's press conference of November 9, 2006 at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan.

When you see the videos, if you know Jack Higgins, you will surely recall a famous phrase, that is,“A Romanic Fool”.
A remarkable story, Radl said carefully. “An an unusual man”
“I would say one of the bravest you are ever likely to encounter,“Himmler said calmly.
“Gifted with high intelligence, courageous, ruthless, a brilliant soldier and a romantic fool.” (Jack Higgins, The Eagle Has Landed, p.7)
Steiner said,“Well put, Mr. Devlin. Tell me something. Why are you going?”
“Simple,” Devlin said.“Because it’s there. I’m the last of the great adventurers.”
“Excellent,”Steiner laughed delightedly. (Jack Higgins, The Eagle Has Landed, p.111)

Is Bushido still alive in Japan?
Dear Jounarists fighting for freedom,
A Samurai in Japan will hold a Press Conference at 15:30 PM, Thursday November 09, 2006 (Japan Standard Time), at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan (FCCJ).
The FCCJ announced the press conference as follows:
Press Conference, Togo Fujita, CEO, eHomes Inc.
The speech and Q & A will be in Japanese with English interpretation.
Disgraced architect Hidetsugu Aneha is expected to be sentenced on Thursday for his part in the fabricated earthquake-resistance data scandal. Immediately following the ruling, Togo Fujita, president of now-defunct building inspection agency eHomes Inc., will come to the FCCJ from the court to give his opinion of the verdict, offer his views on the incident and answer questions.
Fujita claims to have first exposed the falsifications and says the incident was due to a flaw in the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MILT) system for building certifications. He claims the government is trying to sweep the problem under the carpet by assigning blame to a small number of private individuals. He also claims that previous cases of falsified data were suppressed by the government and never reported to the public. A report to then-Prime Minister Koizumi was ignored and he was blocked by bureaucrats and police from making a report to Prime Minister Abe.

One hundred ago, that is, 1905. Nitobe Inazô published a book entitled “Bushido: The Soul of Japan”.
Bushido: The Soul of Japan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He stated in his book as follows:
"An unconscious and irresistible power, Bushido has been moving the nation and individuals. It was an honest confession of the race when Yoshida Shoin, one of the most brilliant pioneers of Modern Japan, wrote on the eve of his execution the following stanza;—
"Full well I knew this course must end in death;
It was Yamato spirit urged me on
To dare whate'er betide."
Unformulated, Bushido was and still is the animating spirit, the motor force of our country.”
A number of people in Japan, off course, Mr. Fujita Togo among them, sympathize with the above statement.
I believe that they in 2006 also agree with Nitobe's conclusion in 1905:
“Bushido as an independent code of ethics may vanish, but its power will not perish from the earth; its schools of martial prowess or civic honor may be demolished, but its light and its glory will long survive their ruins. Like its symbolic flower, after it is blown to the four winds, it will still bless mankind with the perfume with which it will enrich life. Ages after, when its customaries shall have been buried and its very name forgotten, its odors will come floating in the air as from a far-off unseen hill, "the wayside gaze beyond;"—then in the beautiful language of the Quaker poet,
"The traveler owns the grateful sense
Of sweetness near he knows not whence,
And, pausing, takes with forehead bare
The benediction of the air."”
Thursday November 09, 2006 in Japan will be a beautiful day.

Does the mass media in Japan Hide The truth?
Dear Journalists fighting for freedom,
On October 29, 2006, Mr. Fugita, the president of eHomes Inc. in Japan, emailed a massage to the TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System) in Japan and released it to every Japanese person from his mixi’s blog ("mixi" is the most famous SNS in Japan).
The points of the message are as follows:
1. Why did not TBS report my testimony that I talked you?
2.The evidence that I passed TBS at last week is only one piece of evidence about crimes of TAMURA&SUIRAC Inc. So please take as much care of it as you possibly can.
3.I emailed President Koizumi this spring to tell him about serious news that there is a high possibility that 2000000 buildings were built with faked earthquake-resistance data in Japan. This is due to Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Government of Japan ignored eHomes’s advice.
4.Please report my testimony about new faked earthquake-resistance data.
Although Mr. Fujita may yet believe mass media in Japan, many Japanese people do not believe mass media in Japan. They are afraid that the mass media again ignores his claim. Please interview Mr. Fujita. He is glad to take your interviews. Not only he but also many Japanese people ask for your assistance.

Darth Vaders in Japanese mass media vs. Mr. Fujita Togo
Dear Journalists fighting for freedom,
I here report a biased treatment of Mr. Fujita Togo by the mass media in Japan. He is the president of eHomes Inc. in Japan. On the basis of careful investigations, I concluded that the mass media in Japan has been very unfair to him.
On October 18, the Tokyo District Court sentenced Fujita Togo to 18-months in prison, suspended for three years, for falsifying financial documents to become licensed as a building inspector. He held a press conference at kisha club (official press club) sin Tokyo District Court and spoke to reporters as follows:
(1) "I am sorry for what I did and I will accept the punishment,"(The Japan Times, Japan - Oct 18, 2006)
(2) In spring 2006, eHomes found out that at least three condominiums were to be built with faked earthquake-resistance data and reported it to the Land, Infrastructure and Transport Ministry. The ministry, however, ignored this advice. One condominium out of the three is being sold. I want to prevent new victims. Investigations should be done at the condominium. The name is “The eguzepuriyuto (before the Kawasaki Daishi station)”.
(3) There is a high possibility that 2000000 buildings were built with faked earthquake-resistance data in Japan.
He released a press release at kisha club in Tokyo District Court on October 18.
You can read it on Kikko’s blog (in Japanese): http://kikko.cocolog-nifty.com/kikko/2006/10/post_5af2.html
All of TV and major press in Japan reported the statement (1). However, as for the statements (2) and (3), all mass media such as TBS, Fuji TV and The Yomouri Shinbun ignored them in spite of the fact that they are very serious problems for Japanese people.
Why did the mass media in Japan only report his crime? Why did they not report statements (2) and (3)? It is a very interesting issue.
Mr. Fujita claims that one of the most serious causes is with the system of Japanese kisha clubs.
Someone in Japan claimed as follows: “Mr. Fujita is a person who cannot be trusted. So mass media in Japan does not report his claims. If his claims are not true, a lot of people suffer damage.” I can never agree with this opinion.
Did not mass media in Japan report the news when North Korea announced that they conducted a nuclear test, even though they believe North Korea cannot be trusted? The most important thing is, no doubt, to verify whether or not the information is true. “Truth is truth, even if it comes out of the mouth of Balaam's donkey."
I consider that Mass media in Japan should report Mr. Fujita's claims as follows: “Mr. Fujita claimed that eHomes found out that at least three condominiums were to be built with faked earthquake-resistance data. However, the truth is uncertain. We will verify it and report the facts as soon as possible.”
On October 20 and 21, Mr. Fujita tried to pass the evidence of his claims directly to the Prime Minister Abe. A lot of mass media in Japan took a picture of him, but no mass media reported why he visited the Prime Minister Abe. Fuji TV reported on his behavior of October 20 as if he was making insane claims.
Please see Mr. Fujita's video on YOU TUBE:
Mr. Fujita has also fought Japanese “Darth Vaders” who are in Japanese kisha clubs. They try to conceal information related to Japanese people's life and death.
He now needs our help to keep fighting for freedom and democracy. A number of people in Japan sympathize with his SAMURAI SPIRIT on the basis of “Déclaration des Dorits de l'homme et du Citoyen de 1789”. They are with him and support his mission. They also want to know the truth. They believe that Mr. Fujita's struggle is “Der Kampf ums Recht”.
For all the people who live in Japan the truth should be clarified. The people who love Japan are trying to clarify facts even if some “journalists” in Japanese kisha clubs do not wish it so.
To achieve this purpose, Mr.Fujita & his supporters hope journalists will be able to treat this issue. Contact Mr. Fujita. He is glad to take your interviews. Make him a channel of freedom and democracy. Not only he but also many Japanese people ask for your assistance.
Please see Mr.Fujita's video YOU TUBE:
Mr. Fujita & his supporters dream that one day they can tell Japanese children the story of the struggle for justice in Autumn 2006 in Japan. They believe that no one can kill the truth.
“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered. The point is to discover them.” (Galileo Galilei)
