Director message

What lies beyond a person’s sensibility?

Today’s education is mainly left-brain education, which values knowledge.
However, knowledge is a trivial matter and an insignificant detail. Educating one’s sensibility has always been at the root of education, in other words, a “soul education.”
Society is seeking to shift toward an education that nurtures one’s sensibility, mind, and soul.
This soul education is what is at the base of the right-brain education created by Makoto Shichida.
Professor Shichida, the creator of the Shichida Method, is a person of depth, purity, and radiance. He is the model adult and possesses everything that individuals in modern society needs.
I hope you learn about Professor Makoto Shichida’s life through this film and that it provides you with a guideline for how to live your life.
