■Comment from Noritake Kinashi
I would like to express my gratitude and give back to the “Tunnels” generation who have enjoyed us and who have grown old with us in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. Some of these people feel depressed because of the dark and cold world we live in these days, or they reach retirement age at the company they worked for for many years, and they feel lost and unable to find their next step in life. I think there are quite a few people who are like that. I would be happy if such people could get to know me as a person, and if there are any “hints” for living in the second half of their lives, they could use them as a reference. (From “Prologue”)
■TVCM has also started broadcasting!
