    In Japan, the Heisei era (1989.1.8--2019.4.30), in which world situation had changed on a large scale, came to an end, and the Reiwa era has just begun. What is the ideal image of human being to open a way to peaceful and just Kyosei societies in this new era? Starting from this concern, I try first to criticize the old relational concept of human being developed by Heidegger and Watsuji, and then to advance a new relational concept of human being based upon the understanding of Responsive-Becoming-Multidimensional Self, Others and Public World”, and last to emphasize the necessary Kyosei education for the peace and social justice.

    The first global civilization has been characterized by the dominance of Pax Britanica to be followed by Pax Americana for the past 200 years. Based on the philosophical underpinning of individualism, such factors and values as market economy, democracy, freedom, human rights and the rule of law in the broad framework of the nation-states system have been globalized with, however, increasing sense of uncomfortableness with this trend in various parts of the world. With the decline of the influence of the United States and with the emergence of alternative values based on perspectives beyond individualism, a new global civilization seems to be in the offing. It should be essential for the intellectual community to come to grips with this phenomenon up-front at this historic moment in time. The objective of this paper is to present a rough sketch of the issues involved in analyzing this challenge. The first set of issues are related to the problems that tend to arise in the context of civilizational change. The second set of issues are related to the substance of the new civilization. At the end of the paper a series of general observations will be presented.

    This paper discusses how useful sports play in realizing a Kyosei- society. Sports are competitions, while physical education is exercised to improve physical abilities. Sporting is achieved by playing fair under certain rules. Sports removes the barriers of ethnicity, religion, and state, and all people can participate as game players. Players play a rough game because they play with a sense of struggle, but they always form a friendship relationship by having respect and respect to the opponent player. Sports form a flexible community where participants can participate or not. The Olympic Charter states that the goal of Olympism is to place sport at the service of the harmonious development of humankind, with a view to promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity. It is the world's largest sports festival with 209 countries and regions participating in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Paralympic Games. The Kyosei- society will be realized by deepening the Olympic Movement. Keywords: sports, fighting spirit, sociality, peace, kyosei

    Located 570Kms southwest of Kagoshima, Okinoerabu-Island is a coral island of about 60 kilometers around with rich nature having a little under 13,000 people. Its birthrate is high at 2.0 and a survey shows that 75% of high school students want to return to the island in the future. However, it is facing many problems, such as depopulation, aging and financial deterioration. Then, what do we have to consider in order to enrich local regions? Answer is clear that we must understand the cultural elements sustaining the island and pass them on to the next generation. After interviewing 29 island people using the 90-year-old hearing method, it became clear that the island’s culture consisted of five elements. In order to pass them on to the children and the grandchildren, we studied how some tangible forms of gifts using backcasting should be given to them. Research has shown that living in the feeling of connectedness, accomplishment, fulfillment and both “self-sufficiency” and “island pride” are the key strategies. Detailed studies on the self-sufficiency of energy, food, learning and money have begun. As one of the examples of that, Seisa University Satellite college was introduced in 2017 to nurture leaders for the island. Key words: two limitations, backcasting, self-sustaining type lifestyle, Okinoerabuisland

    This study investigate the process of constructing a practice of “musicking” in Japanese music education context, and assess the practice by employing the structure of Universal Design. Ultimately, the study seeks a possibility of universal design in music education context by pursuing the practice of “musicking”. Musicking is a new concept originally introduced by Small (1998). In musicking, whether by performing, by listening, by rehearsing or practicing, by composing, by dancing, and even by supporting other musicians, to music is for everyone participate in any capacity of musical lives (Small, 1998). In this study, the practitioner researchers spent 3 years conducting series of workshops to design a practice model of musicking by implementing traditional instruments including violin, technological instruments and shakuhachi and other expressive art forms. To assess the process of musicking for everyone to participate in musical activity, the study employed the idea of universal design in music education and The Guideline for Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and descriptively analyzed the practice for reflection. Consequently, the study introduces the practice model of musicking and addresses critical issues for universal design in music education settings.
