| “Look at that mountain.”
A man said with pointing a mountain covered with blight greens.
“I had been planting baby trees for more
than 40 years until I retired.”
When he was working in the forest which is close to Shibestu, many
people asked him “Is it so important to plant trees in the mountain? You are
wasting our tax.” he wondered whether he wasted tax or not. “Is my job really
useful for our society?” However, he kept planting trees until he was 60 years
Now He was working at Shibetsu port to keep
it clean. His job was to check the port, clean it. If there was something
wrong, he had to report to the administrator of the port.
As Shibetsu port is the beginning of the project to deliver their salmon
safely, it should be considered as one of the most important part of the project
(Relay HACCP). He was checking everywhere at the port and the sea near the
there. If he found garbage, he picked it up. After that, he wrote what he saw
and picked on his note. “I did not like to write something, I did not know how
to write very well, but now I am learning letters. This is my dictionary. First
time, I thought why I had to write something everyday, but not it is becoming
interesting for me to learn letters.” He smiled beautifully.
“And now,” he said, “I found my job to plant trees were useful to
keep water clean and beautiful. The water came from that mountain and runs into
the ocean. My trees are important to produce beautiful water in Shibetsu. I
finally understood m job was important, I am really glad.”
After cleaning the port, He got on his car and smiled, “I have to go
to check everything quickly before ships come back here.”
He was gone with beautiful morning sunlight.
