Why I started my own business? July 2006 My wife was pregnant. I started thinking about becoming a father. September 2006 “The last” travel with my wife alone to Finland and Estonia. Suddenly, everything looked strange in Helsinki. I wondered why I did not fully utilize experiences from traveling. I strongly hoped that I want grow altogether with my children. I decided to set up my own business to control my life and to make the world a better place.
Take a look back 1994-1998 I founded 4 new social circles in my university days, not intentionally. I have met so many people playing chess while I traveled in Asia. 1998-2000 I started working as a ‘paid employee’ and enjoyed freedom and unfreedom.

A just a traveler became a traveler with MA. Travel and various career enabled me to meet various kind of people.

Tabi to Heiwa 旅 と 平和 I hit upon the concept of “Tabi to Heiwa” in 2003. Travelers can create peace. MA Dissertation in Bradford: Peace through Tourism
Definition Travelers act and move on their own will. ! Just visiting foreign countries is not enough, and they don’t even have to go out for abroad. ! Travelers are curious and have a strong passion to communicate and connect with people and the situation.
Definition Peace is not just about world peace, which is vague for many people. We have to think about peace from a tiny level around us.
Positive peace / Negative peace
To spread the idea It is very difficult to change people’s idea dramatically I met many dedicated people who always think others, but at the same time I feel that ordinary people usually do not care about what is happening in the other area of the world. Any way to change people’s daily behaviour?
To spread the idea People Eat 3 times a day.
To spread the idea Restaurant can be a place to learn. If I have a seminar on peace, conscious people may come…but… Having a good time, enjoying a moment… and the guests gain the information and knowledge as a result.
paxi paxi comes from phakchi in Thai language. Coriander(English), Cirantro(Spanish), Dhanya(Hindi),香菜(Chinese) Свежий кориандр(Russian), ةربزك(Arabic)… paxi = pax + i
Other reason to choose paxi We don’t usually eat paxi in Japan “Travelers” know about paxi, but others not. I suppose paxi can be a good keyword to attract travelers. Most of my ideas come from traveling experience, so travelers can easily understand what I am thinking. paxi reminds travelers of their good days, or bad days ^^
Other reason to choose paxi Everybody believes paxi is: “ love it or hate it” paxi is not like just a herb or vegetable… paxi is like India! And… I need power from mass media to share my idea with huge amount of people.
It’s a pity… Three great things in life. ∗ Getting a job ∗ Mariage ∗ Childbirth But many people in Japan stop their favorite things in these turning points.

PAX Coworking Working as Partying
What is Coworking? Coworking is a work style, where people with different professions and jobs get together to share the work place, and share, through active communications, knowledge and information for the betterment. “co”＋“working”＝“coworking” → Working together This kind of work style started in the USA in 2006. Lots of people then called it “ a new way of working”. The fact is even before 2006 there had been people who worked in “coworking” style”. I therefore think that coworking is a global “new movement” triggered by a new label, “coworking”, put on that kind of working style.
Does coworking have a hyphen in it? No !
Working as Partying ∗ Work experiences at a big company, venture businesses and as a freelance ∗ Why some people say “I’m fed up with this company”? ∗ I saw many people playing chess in the daytime along the roadside in Asia ∗ What is happiness or successful situation in life ∗ Guests meets by chance at paxi house tokyo, and start their business together ∗ Is there any working place where 100 % of the people are smiling? ! （8month↓9 days ） ! ∗ And finally I found out such places already exist in the world!!

Coworking connection to the world In July 2010, almost nobody knows about coworking nor Jelly. I had the first Jelly next month, and little by little more people got to know about this new way of working. 独 ! I was not sure if Coworking became popular or not, but I thoght PAX Coworking can, and should be, the special place to connect with other coworkers all over the world. Beginning of 2011, I visited Vietnam and Taiwan, and gave advices to the Jelly founder and potential coworking owners. PAX Coworking was the only one which joined European JELLYWEEK outside of Europe. This makes the JELLYWEEK worldwide. I assumed the post of the first JELLYWEEK Ambassodor in Asia.
