Introduction of activity
I specialize in the field of health promotion. Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over their health and its determinants, and thereby improve their health (WHO Bangkok Charter 2005). The course instruction is interactive, focusing on the individuality of students and on establishing exchange of ideas and discussion time. There are four goals set for the students of this course:
1) To understand the concepts of the course in a way that it can be globally applicable.
2) To understand and practice methods of health promotion over the entire course of one’s life.
3) To understand one’s current health status and work toward creating a healthy lifestyle.
4) To focus on risk factors as well as happiness factors and understand the primary social determinants of health.
I believe that pursuing one’s dream will determine one’s future. Your dream will create your tomorrow.

Introduction of activity
International society is consisted of a few Great Powers and others. Great Powers and the people of them have their particular characteristics. Japan is one of them or not, it’s not easy to judge. But in either case, we Japanese should appeal ourselves and carry out our own duties among them. What should be done by those young people who wants to be a real KOKUSAIJIN and lead such Japanese---is the main theme we are going to study.

Globalization Studies, Human Mobility Studies
Introduction of activity
Learning about globalization involves thinking about border-crossing politics, economics, culture, and society, as well as the contemporary age in its historical context through reconstructing our existent frameworks for understanding, and transcending areas of research that have become over specialised. Through a focus of the movement and mobilities of people, I have organised collective research projects that have addressed these issues and published the results. The previously unprecedented movement of people has brought about huge changes to the age we know as that of modernity. These changes have significantly affected the form of the nation-state and our frameworks of knowledge. Examples from  Asia including Japan will be important to consider in the future in order to overcome research that takes the West as a model.

Introduction of activity
Today, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are responsible for more than 75% of the deaths worldwide. Cardiovascular diseases account for the most NCD deaths, or 17.5 million people annually, followed by cancers (8.2 million), respiratory diseases (4 million), and diabetes (1.5 million). Atherosclerosis, the clogging of arteries by deposits of fat and cholesterol, is a major cause of cardiovascular disease. Therefore, to reduce the modifiable risk factors and the underlying social determinants for one of the major NCDs, that is, cardiovascular disease, the Global NCD Laboratory’s primary research focus is the investigation of the epidemiology and mechanisms of atherosclerosis.

Introduction of activity
Globalization has given rise to an increase in job opportunities and simultaneously produced greater competition among job seekers for better career prospects. In my “Career Management” classes, students understand the skills and talents required in the workforce of a globalized world. They also realize the needs of the local cultures and individual organizations. Based on this, at this early phase in their life, they are able to identify their career aspirations, the job opportunities available, and work toward planning and achieving a fulfilling career.

Introduction of activity
My experience of working in the United States for five and a half years has helped me understand the difficulties faced by Japanese companies in organizing their HR systems to meet global standards.
Working assignments tends to be vague in Japanese companies and this makes it difficult for people outside of Japan to get used to the system.
This system works fine for Japanese organizations, but not for others. However, trying to change this HR system might be at the risk of losing the good features inherent in these systems.
My research is on how to balance the finer aspects of the Japanese HR system with changes that are required within it to make it globally applicable.

Introduction of activity
The seminar promotes and fosters a “DO-LOOK-THINK-GROW” cycle. “DO” refers to activities such as developing an interest in any sport, participating in community events, or collecting information from newspaper clippings to help in the research. “LOOK” stands for confirming the research data, while “THINK” is about analyzing the data. “GROW” refers to constructing a new hypothesis, whereas “DO” concerns the next step in the research to verify the hypothesis. On following these steps, students will be able to acquire an insight into their future growth from a sociological perspective. The seminar strives to cultivate in students an understanding that “the basis to actively participate in a global society starts from understanding one’s own society (Japanese society).” This process, therefore, enhances their ability to have an objective understanding of various social issues and analyze them from different perspectives.

Introduction of activity
Language and culture affects our thinking and identity at a very deep level. Research into language, culture and cognition shows us that our unconscious mind is “programmed” by the linguistic and cultural patterns we grew up with. That’s one reason that language learning can be so challenging—we must learn a new way of thinking and relating. This is also why many people get culture shock when they spend time in a foreign environment. My research focuses on understanding the deep impact of language and culture on our minds. I also develop educational materials that focus on deep learning of language and culture.

[Research] Oxidative stress is a condition faced by organisms that depend on oxygen in the air for their growth. Our research focuses on protective enzymes (SOD), which prevent oxidative stress, and a sensitive marker (6-nitrotryptophan), which is a marker of oxidative stress in organisms. These research findings have been published in 77 research papers and 9 review papers.
[Education] The class “Chemistry and its Application” is offered to freshman students, wherein students will study about the chemistry in the context of social problems. In the sophomore class, “Science in Life Processes,” students will learn about the basic mechanisms of biological activity that form the foundation of human health. Students should note that the second half of the class will be taught in English.

Learning a language takes time and effort, but it can be a rewarding and even an enjoyable process. At FILA, we conduct classes with only few students in each class so that a student can interact effectively with other learners and with the instructors. This is not only effective, but also a lot of fun. We also provide counseling and instruction to help students find their own way of studying that is best suited for them. Our classes and the activities at the Learning Center provide students with opportunities and material to enhance their English learning. We are always there to support them in improving their learning and help them achieve their goals.

An increase in the number of unstable occupations and frequent job transitions have produced a change in the relationship between organizations and individuals. The responsibility for a career has shifted from organizations to individuals. People must design their career by themselves and cope with the uncertainties of the job. Currently, my research interests are focused on improving the counseling abilities of career practitioners, exploring counseling at workplaces, and supporting a transition from school to work.
My lectures are on topics such as basic counseling psychology, human relations within organizations, and on how to design a career.

Introduction of activity
I try to achieve the following two rather big objectives in my English education classes. I train students to not merely memorize English sentences and use them but inculcate in them an understanding of the differences between the two ways of thinking, i.e., the Japanese way and the English way. An understanding of the rather profound differences in syntax and semantics between the two languages can help them have a deeper interest and knowledge of the culture of both. For those students who wish to become English teachers in the future, I emphasize the importance of providing adequate responses to queries raised by students in class. The second is that I try to nurture in them an attitude that will value people who come from different cultures, have different values, and play different roles, by emphasizing the importance of mutual understanding through language. In my English classes for freshmen and sophomores, I emphasize the skills required to gain confidence in sending out messages in English.

Introduction of activity
“Interpreting” is not just a simple act of “changing Language A to Language B,” but it is sometimes misunderstood as such, ignoring its multilayered aspect. Through discourse analysis of interpreter-mediated communication, we try to explore some aspects of interpreting of which people are not usually aware. We focus on community interpreting in which “dialogue interpreting” plays a part, Our target language combination is Japanese-Spanish-English.
 Currently, the research on court interpreting has shed light on the existing divergence between the communicative and the normative roles of interpreters analyzing authentic court discourse using the key notion of language ideology.

Introduction of activity
In China, the Buddhist sutras have been translated since ancient times and theories of translation have originated from those early days. These theories have also been modified in accordance with the changing times. These translation theories reveal information on many matters, such as the social background of the period, the purpose of interpretation, the role of interpreters, and so on. My research is on translation–interpretation theories of China. Investigating these theories enables me to analyze matters relating to interpreting, such as its social significance and its relationship with the normative consciousness of interpreting for interpreters.

Translation connects people from different cultures. In the Translation Studies Seminar, we approach translation as a form of intercultural communication from various perspectives. Students conduct research on translation texts and/or translators in their own and other cultures. They learn basic translation theories from works by established researchers of Translation Studies and write a thesis based on their original research. The possible research topics in this field are translation’s role in a particular society, relationships among translation, languages and cultures, and translators as intercultural communicators. Participating in this seminar will help students gain an insight into communication between people from different cultures.

Introduction of activity
True global citizens should be capable of more than just language use. To become one, the basis to see other cultures and languages is necessary, that is, to have and use knowledge of our own country and culture. This basis helps us deepen intercultural understanding and language learning as well. However, Japanese are seldom proud of themselves, especially when using other languages, which is so unlike global citizens. To be internationally proud users of other languages, we Japanese need to be aware of our characteristics and appreciate them. When we get lost we can always come back to where we started.

The focus of my research is discourse analysis. In particular, I study differences between Japanese and English language and how these relate to the unconscious knowledge or assumptions that speakers have concerning normative language use in particular contexts (sociocultural epistemology). Cross-linguistic studies have shown that speakers of these languages do have differing underlying assumptions concerning aspects of language use in context. To become a good user of English, learners need to become more conscious about these assumptions.The students at FILA are required to consider the gaps between English and Japanese languages and seek the most effective ways to convey what they are thinking.

Learning French as a second foreign language, is a long span cognitive process, but it is also a chance of knowing, experiencing and building a new identity. As we say in French "science without conscience is but the ruin of the soul", educational process aims, by transmitting knowledge, to strengthen and enlarge the individuals as full human being. When I get involved in Japanese culture, I study and translate Japanese classic texts, but I also perform them to feel, deeply experience, understand and pass them on to the audience. Learning a new language is a global experience, a humanism where cognition, culture, interaction and feelings are strongly involved.
