BAR “SPEAKEASY” was open secretly in the age of prohibition. In 2020, there was such a secret BAR in the city of Tokyo. “TOKYO SPEAKEASY” opens at 1 a.m. on Monday through Thursday. Big guests from all over the world come and talk about talking only here, or not.
Tokyo FM’s program “TOKYO SPEAKEASY” on May 14, the customers are free announcer Natumi Uga and psychosomatic physician and singer Junko Kaihara. Mr. Kaihara’s book, which Mr. Uga-san was greatly influenced by, was a pillar of the story.

◆The love book of Utsugi Utsugi “Positive Thinking Changes A Woman”
Uga: It’s been a long time since I’ve been up to this time.
Kaihara: I’m sleeping, too.
Uga: Recently, I went to bed early and got up early, and there are days when I don’t have a job, so I naturally went to bed early and got up early.
Kaihara: It’s healthy, isn’t it?
Uga: It’s healthy. I actually have a book now. Junko Kaihara’s “Positive Thinking Changes Women”
Kaihara: Surprised(laughs). Yes, this is 1993, the first edition. That’s why I was born 27 years ago.
Uga: No, it’s been a long time since it was released. I think the first time I picked up a book was in the fifth grade of elementary school.
Kaihara: Wow, did you read it in that era?
Uga: That’s right. I go to the library once or twice a week with my family, and i find it there, and I don’t know why, but I’m attracted to this word “positive thinking changes women”.
Kaihara: Elementary school students
Uga: That’s right.
Haihara: Isn’t that really it?
Uga: Really. So, if you read it, isn’t this for working women? But in the chest of elementary school students, i’m stuck in something.
Kaihara: It’s amazing, it’s a very special elementary school student.
I love reading, but I’ve always been a person who would rather read how-to books and self-development books than stories, and i think it’s going to be a bit of a fun.
Haihara: Oh, that’s right.
Uga: But what is it? When I grew up, I fell in love with novels and stories, but even junior high school students were pretty hard to find (laughs) and in a small world, I couldn’t make the world by myself because I had no money and no freedom.
Haihara: That’s it. When I was a child, I wanted to grow up early, so it was basic to leave home and earn my own money.
Uga: That’s right. I want to grow up early, i want to work part-time early. By reading this book, i think there were a lot of things that could be applied to school life.
Kaihara: Eh? For instance?
Uga: That’s all. First of all, when I open this book, the title says, “Come on, be well.” First of all, it is said that it was encouraged. In addition, “look ahead thinking becomes negative”, “you can not be happy if you keep fun”, “you can enjoy everyone if you can enjoy one person well”, “it is not good too much to be particular”, it is already all. I think this applies to everyone, not just women.
This is the opposite of what the so-called common sense teachers say, “Do this” (laughs).
Uga: That’s right.
Therefore, it is opposite to being said by the teacher, “Look ahead and think about it more”, and “Happiness is good for the back”. Maybe it was stuck in a navel-bending person.
Changing yourself will change the world.
Uga: Is it shocking? After all, there was feelings that it was not possible to play with the average of me very much after all, and it became really anxious when i read this and my self reform was done little by little though there was such a mind such as how it was thought by the person, and someone was envied or compared with the person.
Kaihara: That was good. I’m writing this after all, comparing it to something in me, and because it is very anxious to be said so by the person, how can I get over it, and how it becomes easy even a little?
Uga: I was the hardest part of it until I was about 15 years old. After high school, i was able to transform everything into a positive one, although it’s a little bit. After the age of 16, i have a lot of really happy memories, and it reminded me that changing myself will change the world so much.
Haihara: Oh, that’s great. There are quite a lot of people who go up to the age of about the age without noticing something. It’s hard when people come to counseling to think about what life was like after they’ve been around 70.
Uga: I want everyone to read it. On the other hand, i haven’t read books of this genre since I came across this book, almost. For example, when you’re a student, and you want to stop and think about it even after you get a job, you always have a hint.
I’m glad it was good. What I wrote in the past was useful.
