Greetings from Shunsuke Okashita, Director of(GISA)

My blog(Japanese only):http://ameblo.jp/ecoshun/

Up until 2008, I was running an Internet-based company that introduced to the world Japanese traditional handicrafts and techniques, mostly Japanese swords and other martial arts gear, in addition to Japanese kitchen knives and Kyoto-style printed silks, and also offered support for sales channel development. However, my luck turned against me two years ago when I suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage in November 2008, which paralyzed the left side of my body. There was no way that I could continue with my business as it was, and so I was forced to discontinue my work. Even so, I did not want to spend the rest of my life completely crippled, only being assisted by others. Despite my hardships, I wanted to offer my services to society in whatever way I could. After thinking about what I might be able to do with my able right hand, I decided to use my typing skills to perform web programming and create a database introducing environmental technology, which I hoped would be of some use in the struggle against global environmental issues.

I began with a Japanese web site that included a database dedicated to environmental technology for Japanese people. I then hit upon the idea of rebuilding the English web site of my now defunct company for introducing / selling traditional handicrafts to overseas customers, so that I could introduce Japan's environmental and energy-saving technologies to the world and help Japanese manufacturers to find sales channels outside of the country. After I finished remaking that site in February 2010, I was able to gain the full support of an old friend with an engineering background, and decided to fully launch the project.
