NITESHA KYOTO 2021 AW english

"OBLIVION" by Shunichi Oda



A Lost 30 Years.

This what our seniors, who grew up blessed by economic growth,
call the time between now and 1990, the year I was born.

In retrospect, we have never known their kind of unfounded optimism
that believes in inevitable growth and an ever brighter future.

The stagnation that once enveloped society has changed into despair,
and the future is obscured by a dark veil.

The Japanese have become weak.
This and similar things have been uttered by many heartless intellectuals.

But is it actually true?
I do not think so.

Through cooperation and mutual help, we have risen
from the ruins of wars and natural disasters who made us who we are.

The people of Japan have lived with nature’s rich blessings since ancient times,
and our deep coexistence with nature has taught us a spirit of harmony.

Instead of grieving an uncertain future,
we should turn out attention towards the past that shaped us.

Time’s merciless grind makes it easy to lose ourselves.
That is why I believe we may find the answers we need in Oblivion.
