Wege aus der Katastrophe-Wie Fukushima die erobert-

絶望からの再起~医療産業で復興する福島

Fukushima Prefecture is continuing promote the medical industry. The medical field is expecting large growth centered on developing nations. The medical industry in Fukushima can have a big impact on the regional economy. The value of Fukushima’s medical equipment market will double over the next 10 years.

Seither sind 5 Jahre vergangen. Die Umgebung des Kernkraftwerks ist nach wie vor
unbewohnbar, aber in anderen Gegenden nehmen die Menschen langsam wieder ihr
gewohntes Leben und ihre wirtschaftlichen Aktivitäten wie vor dem Erdbeben auf.
Ein großer Antriebsmotor für den wirtschaftlichen Wiederaufbau ist die
Medizintechnologie und die damit verbundene Kooperation mit Deutschland.
Vorgestellt werden Unternehmen und Manufakturen, die die regionale Wirtschaft
stützen und Arbeitsplätze schaffen. Die Präfektur Fukushima konzentrierte sich auf die
Medizintechnologie, die weltweit Wachstumspotential hat, und förderte die Expansion
von regionalen Unternehmen in dem Bereich der Medizintechnologie.
In der Stadt Kôriyama wurde eine Einrichtung/Forschungskrankenhaus geschaffen,
das weltweit als erstes Krankenhaus BNCT , eine Krebstherapie mit Neutronen, in
klinischen Studien durchführt. BNCT soll auch die Behandlung von rezidivierenden
Krebserkrankungen ermöglichen, gilt als die „ideale Krebstherapie“ („yume no
ganchiryô = ein Traum von einer Krebstherapie“) weltweit. Die Ergebnisse dieser
klinischen Studie werden weltweit mit Spannung erwartet und beobachtet.
Was die Förderung der Medizintechnologie unterstützt ist die in diesem
Zusammenhang entstandene Kooperation mit Deutschland, für Japan das Land von
dem man in puncto Medizin immer schon gerne gelernt hat -in gewissem Sinne sieht
man in Deutschland „die Wiege der Medizin“.
Die Präfektur Fukushima hat 2014 mit dem Land Nordrhein-Westfalen eine
Absichtserklärung für enge Kooperation und gemeinsame Forschung und Entwicklung
in den Bereichen Krebstherapie, Entwicklung von medizinischen Geräten und
medizinischen Robotern vereinbart.
Im September 2016 findet in diesem Zusammenhang an der Universität Essen ein
gemeinsames Symposium der Präfektur Fukushima und dem Land Nordrhein-
Westfalen (NRW-Fukushima Joint Symposium on Advances in Medicin“ statt. BNCT
und Medizinroboter (Strahlentherapie und Robotik) sind die Themen der Konferenz.
Experten der Strahlentherapie aus Japan und von der Universität tauschen sich hier
aus. Die Universität Essen strebt an, Deutschlands erste Einrichtung für
Strahlentherapie zu werden und legt daher großen Wert auf die gemeinsame
Forschung mit dem Krankenhaus in der Präfektur Fukushima.
Bei der Medizin-Messe MEDICA, die am 13. November 2016 in Düsseldorf stattfindet,
stellt die Präfektur Fukushima jedes Jahr aus. Auch in diesem Jahr stellen 6
Unternehmen aus der Präfektur Fukushima ihre neuen Produkte vor. Darunter auch
das Unternehmen ESQ - eine kleine Fabrik (Werkstatt) mit nur 20 Mitarbeitern. Dieses
Unternehmen ist weltweit an der Spitze, was die Produktion von ultrafeinen
Metallröhren angeht. Auch für den deutschen Automobilzulieferer Bosch hat man hier
bereits ultrafeine Metallröhren für die Antiblockier-Bremssysteme gefertigt. Ultrafeine
Röhren von ESQ werden in Stents verwendet, die Herzinfarktpatienten eingesetzt
werden, um verengte Herzkranzgefäße zu erweitern. ESQ beliefert Stent-Hersteller
weltweit.
Die Firma Cyberdyne, die ihre Produktion in der Präfektur Fukushima hat, stellt den
medizinischen Roboteranzug(Exoscelett) HAL her, der in der Rehabilitation der
Bewegungsfunktionen von querschnittsgelähmten Patienten benutzt wird. Die
Therapieeinrichtung, bei der HAL zum Einsatz kommt ist in Deutschland, in Bochum.
Seit ihrer Gründung 2013 haben hier bisher 75 Patienten ein dreimonatiges Training
durchlaufen.
Gianna, die eine Rückenmarksverletzung bei einem Sturz vom Pferd davontrug, gehört
dazu. Sie konnte ihren Bewegungsapparat durch die Therapie soweit rehabilitieren,
dass sie heute wieder in der Lage ist zu reiten. Die Aufnahmen mit Gianna sowohl im
Therapiezentrum beim Training, wie auch beim Reiten belegen den Erfolg der
Therapie. In der Sendung wird ebenfalls eine 18jährige Patientin begleitet, die seit
Ende August 2016 an der 3 monatigen Therapie teilnimmt.
Durch solche Projekte, die stellvertretend sind für Medizintechnik aus Japan, wird die
Präfektur Fukushima vorgestellt und den Zuschauern in einem neuen noch
unbekannten Kontext näher gebracht. Dass sie sich soweit entwickeln konnte, und
somit weltweit Beachtung findet liegt nicht nur an der staatlichen Unterstützung,
sondern an den hohen technologischen Potentialen, die die regionalen Unternehmen
hier bereits als Zulieferer der Automobilindustrie entwickelt haben. Sie waren gefordert,
zu möglichst niedrigen Kosten Produkte höchster Qualität herzustellen. Auch
Medizintechnische Geräte benötigen höchste Qualität und Präzision, müssen sicher
und verlässlich sein. Die Unternehmen von Fukushima, die als Zulieferer der
Automobilindustrie gestählt wurden und viel Erfahrung haben, bringen in diesem
Bereich ihre Stärken ein.
In der Sendung werden noch weitere medizintechnische Geräte aus Fukushima
vorgestellt, deren originäre Technik weltweit führend ist. Die Sendung beschreibt die
Energie der Klein- und Mittelständischen Unternehmen aus Fukushima, die zum
Wiederaufbau nach dem KKW-Unfall beitragen, und die Kooperation mit Deutschland
anhand der Menschen, die hier beteiligt sind .

The Wisdom of Washoku

日本料理的智慧

Chapter One : Washoku Origins
Chapter Two : Wanmono (Bowl Dish)
In 794, Japan’s capital was moved to Kyoto.
It remained the capital for more than a millennium.
The diverse food culture of the Imperial family and nobility is still in evidence today.
The origins of washoku are honzen, shojin and kaiseki cuisines.
At the very root of washoku is a heartfelt appreciation of life and the blessings of nature.

第1章 日本料理的原点
第2章 碗物(汤)
794年,平安京的首都。
从那时起,京都一直扮演着1000多年的首都角色,
拥有多元化的饮食文化,现在仍然继承着皇宫和贵族的菜肴。
日本料理(和食)的起源是本膳料理,精进料理和怀石料理。
所有的根本,都包含着接受生命,接受自然的恩惠的感谢之心。

TOFUKUJI - Resplendent in Red

东福寺 红妆璀璨

Tofukuji Temple, the head temple of the Rinzai sect of Buddhism, was built in 1236.
At the main entrance is Sanmon Gate, designated a National Treasure. It is the largest one of its kind among Zen temples of Japan. The site is imbued with the solemnity of Buddhism. Nineteen statues of the Buddha grace the hall and the ceiling is adorned with the Kalavinka and Gumyo Bird, mythical creatures said to dwell in Buddhist paradise. The nearly 2000 maples trees along the temple grounds attest to the beauty of nature with its fresh green foliage in spring that eventually burst into the resplendent colors of fall. Three wooden bridges, Tsutenkyo, Gaunkyo, Engetsukyo span a stream surrounded by maple trees.
In all four directions of the Hojo or abbot’s quarters, the beautifully kept modern gardens convey expressions of contemporary art. Named collectively as Hasso-no-niwa (Garden of Eight Views), it was designed by Mirei Shigemori, the quintessential gardener of the Showa Era. In creating this garden, stones were brought from another location, in keeping with the Zen spirit of not letting anything go to waste. In autumn, the temple is dyed in the radiant hues of autumn. We are proud to present the breathtaking beauty of Tofukuji Temple in 4K super high-definition, the only way to do justice to the magical changing of the seasons woven by man and nature.

东福寺是佛教临济宗之总院,于1236年建造。主入口处是被指定为国宝的三门。它是日本禅寺同类中最大的一个。此处充溢着佛教庄严。十九尊佛像置于大堂,天花板饰有据说是安居于佛教极乐世界的神话动物——迦陵频伽及共命鸟。近两千棵枫树沿着寺庙庭院而立,春季新绿树叶尔后漫润秋季璀璨色彩,彰显自然之美。三座木桥——通天桥、卧云桥及偃月桥横跨枫树环绕的溪流。
方丈庭院的东西南北方向为秀丽的现代庭院,总称为八相之庭,展现当代艺术风韵。创建此庭院时,石料来自于此区其他场地,以契合勿要浪费的禅之精神。在秋季,明媚秋色尽染寺庙。我们荣幸地呈现东福寺令人心折的美丽,而这人与自然共同织就的季节的奇妙变化仅能通过4K超高清晰度得以尽致体现。

The Leader

领导人

Corporate and organization leaders are said to be loners.
They also seem to be unapproachable.
However, we want to know more about them, about goals they set, and how they tackle difficult decisions.
“The Leader” features a leader each time, and the documentary reveals a side of them never seen in public. Topics are not limited to their confidence and pride. They talk about skills needed in leading an organization, how they maintain their health, their hobbies, what they read, their thoughts on child rearing, nostalgic locations, turning points in their lives, the follies of youth, and things they love with all their heart.

人们都说,企业和组织的社长永远都是孤独的。
每位社长都有难以接近的氛围。
但是,我们希望可以听到一直追寻新目标和作出重要决断的社长心声。
记录片【领导人】是一个每次以一位社长为中心,介绍社长日常生活真面孔的节目。
此节目是以一位代表节目【脸面】的高井美纪播音员,直接和社长见面一起去倍受关注的店,一起边吃饭边聊,或者在倍受关注的地方,悄悄地体验社长的兴趣爱好和聊天。主要交流听取各种各样的趣闻,比如以前作为公司员工时的秘密,人生的梦想,对公司和组织的思绪------,介绍不为人知的社长形象,描写企业和组织的魅力和未来。

The Home of Namahage

なまはげの古里

For long years, the Namahage have been believed to be the incarnations of deities in Oga, Akita. On New Year’s Eve, they descend from the sacred mountains and visit house-to-house to warn children against misconducts crying "any bad kids?" At the same time, they give blessings to the residents. In 2018, the Namahage culture was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list as a part of the "Raiho-shin, ritual visits of deities in masks and costumes."
Why was the Namahage born in Oga? Why did people value and inherit the Namahage tradition for long years? There are hints in the severe climate of the Oga peninsula and the way to make Namahage masks and costumes. Let's explore answers in the day-to-day life of the people who live there.

Memory of the World Message from Sakubei Yamamoto ~ A miner-painter’s link to the future

世界記憶遺産 山本作兵衛からのメッセージ ~炭鉱絵師がつなぐ未来~

At the age of seven, Sakubei Yamamoto entered a coal mine with his parents; this was the beginning of his 50 year career at the Chikuho mines in Fukuoka prefecture. The mines were pitch black and humid, and the threat of collapse or flooding was never far from the miner’s minds.
After retiring, Sakubei found work as a night guard. From the age of 66, he first began documenting his life and times working at the coal mines in essays and paintings. He left behind a legacy of over a thousand paintings, as well as 70 notebooks and diaries. Of this collection, 697 pieces were chosen for inscription on the ‘Memory of the World’ register. This program examines the life of Sakubei, and the incredibly detailed documents he left behind of the Chikuhocoal mines. What sort of figure was he, and what message does he convey to us through his artwork? Sakubei’s life and art is revealed through the stories told by those connected to him.
It got Certificate of Creative Excellence award at US International Film & Video Festival in 2014


日本一だった石炭生産地、福岡県・筑豊に生まれた作兵衛(1892-1984)は、およそ50年間炭坑夫として働き、その記憶を1000枚以上の絵に残しました。
暑く暗い地の底で石炭を掘る男と女の姿、道具、共同風呂やこどもたちの遊び、縁起や迷信。作兵衛が描いたのは、炭鉱で働く人たちとその家族が暮らす共同社会のすべてです。
ユネスコ(国連教育科学文化機関)は2011年、作兵衛の絵と日記など697点を「世界記憶遺産(※1)」に登録しました。日本での登録第1号です。日本でもまだ北海道釧路で、海底のさらに下から石炭を掘り出しています。
そしてほとんどを輸入に頼っていますが、日本の電気エネルギーの四分の一は石炭による火力発電が担っています。 国民一人あたりにすると、1年間に1トン以上の石炭を今も使っているのです。
番組では、かつて炭鉱で働いていた女性たちの証言、釧路やベトナムの炭鉱の迫力ある採掘現場の映像もまじえ、なぜ名もない山本作兵衛の絵が世界に認められたのか、また作兵衛は未来に何を伝えたかったのかを解き明かしていきます。


在七歲的時候,山本作兵衛在七歲的時候就與他的父母一起進入礦坑,這是他50年礦工生涯的開端。礦坑的生活十分黑暗與潮濕,擔心崩塌的恐懼一直存於礦工的心中。山本作兵衛結束礦工的工作後,繼續工作,擔任夜間的警衛。直到66歲時,他才開始使用煤炭來作畫。作兵衛的一生創作了近千幅的煤炭畫作,其中的667幅畫作會在節目中播放。除此之外,節目中還會介紹山本作兵衛的生平事蹟,以及他在筑豐碳坑的生活。透過本節目,觀眾將能瞭解碳坑畫師-山本作兵衛畫作中的故事。
