A story I had while drinking with an acquaintance from Osaka. When the topic of regional revitalization came up, he said, “I don’t know if it’s revitalization, but there are some areas that are vibrant.” “For example?” I asked. “In Osaka, it’s Nishinari Ward. Children in particular are doing well. Galas are bad, though.” “Why are you doing well?” “I don’t know, but it’s good for children to be that energetic. Why don’t we interview them?” “It’s also interesting to explore the reasons why a region is so lively.” “It’s more glaring than lively.” “Well, they say you can do anything if you have energy. I think I’ll interview you.” (Kei)
