NOW…….my big news! The article I wrote for the Financial Times was accepted and published on Saturday! My international debut from London! Thank you ,Gwen for your kind support. Until this year my life has been consumed mainly with my family. Raising four children in Japan has never been easy and at times it was hard not to feel despondent as more often than not this all important job is denigrated. Now that my children have grown up new roads seem to open up before me and I accept the challenge that comes with my new adventure…

P.S. You can find my article if you search through google…

  1. 余計な事かも知れませんが・・・字が小さくて読めない(ウソ!英語だから翻訳しなきゃいけないから・・)ので検索の手間を省く為に・・・Pachinko parlours are yakuza-freePublished: December 19 2009 02:00 | Last updated: December 19 2009 02:00From Ms Susan Menadue-Chun.Sir, John Plender’s Outside Edge, “Yakuza solutions for errant bankers”, (December 12), presented an interesting suggestion on ways to ostracise sinful bankers. He suggests emulating the Japanese law of 1991 that has severely restricted the sleazy activities of Japanese yakuza gangsters, even barring them from joining prestigious golf clubs.Unfortunately Mr Plender errs in his sweeping statement about “yakuza-run pachinko gaming parlours”. I am an Australian resident of Japan. I have worked with my highly educated Korean husband in our pachinko business for 28 years. Pachinko, often described as “Japanese pinball”, is highly regulated by the police and it is impossible for a “known yakuza” to obtain a license to run a pachinko parlour.Approximately 90 per cent of pachinko owners are of ethnic Korean descent. The dominance of ethnic Koreans in the pachinko industry correlates with the oppression Koreans have famously suffered over centuries in Japanese society. For most ethnic Koreans, choice in an employed profession has never been an option. The pachinko industry has not discriminated against those who live on the edge of Japanese society and has provided job opportunities.The all-too-frequent suggestion that pachinko is run by yakuza gangsters is unwarranted and only gives cheer to those who want to discriminate once again. In the turmoil of rebuilding Japan after the second world war I do concede there was involvement of organised crime. However with strict police regulation it ceased to exist decades ago.Susan Menadue-Chun,Tottori, Japan
