FY 2018 (April – March)
Aurora News – No. 8 (April 1, 2018)
Word by the 3rd president of the JWMA, Mr. Tanaka
He explains how he became first intrigatd by Wada. First he happened to find Tani`s book A Samurai running toward the Aurora, then through a radio drama “A samurai
becoming Aurora” and a memorial stone, he came to know Mr. Ueoka, and through the theatre version Ms. Doi. He memorizes how fellow-islander, Shikoku born Ryoma Sakamoto was a rather unhknow figure in the past, until he became a Japanese hero due to a novel written by Ryotaro Shiba. As a media-person he feels that there is still a lot that the JWMA can do.

We offer our deepest condolences to the victims of the Eastern Japan earthquake on March 11th. We should put in our best effort into what we can do to restoration by talking each other and taking responsibility in our community. We would like to ask our memebers to support us, and let us know what we can do.
Purpose of the foundation of JWMA(Jujiro Wada Memorial Association) is to honor the duty of Jujiro Wada’s accomplishment and pass it to the next generation. Jiro Ueoka, 1st president, founded JWMA organization from thought to object with his strong passion. I, Takami Doi, have taken office as a 2nd president of JWMA for 2 years. Please refer below for the details of all the activities in 2 years.
Since achievements of Jujiro Wada preserved mainly in Alaska and North Territory, Canada, but not in Japan, we strived for the continuous relationship with these regions for this past 2 years. Our effort made great progress through Local community Talk-show, Visit of Musher, Keizo Funatus, and professor of the University of Alaska,
Our next activity is その活動をもとに平成二十三年度の活動のキーワードは「表現」であろうと考えます。その具体化の一つは、教育の資料作成です。
