Minamata City, Kumamoto

I gave my first speech in Japanese to 120 people who came to see a film. The event was organized by the Minamata Kempo Kyu Jou no Kai. I will get better at it next time.






This photo is one of 1000s taken by Charles Ward as he cycled around Japan for a year (2006-2007). Half way though his trip he gave up working as a volunteer in organic farms to start his own peace movement with a little paper bird called Kyu Chan.


Follow Charlie in his adventure to change the world in his new book "Charlie desu, Chikyujin desu" and find out what he is doing now to promote peace.




To find out about more about this peace movement visit Kyu Chans homepage and join the flickr group Kyu Chan. You can make one too, have a go!
