Hide Enomoto on Transition in Japan

I stumbled across The World’s Next Breath yesterday, and there was an interview with Hide Enomoto from Japan. Hide is the founder of Transition Fujino, passionate Transition advocate in Japan, and all round really lovely guy. This interview offers a fascinating update on how things are going in Japan.

Editorial Notes: Quote from Hide Enomoto: "If it's not fun, then it's not sustainable." Japan has a history and culture that might make the transition easier there. See Japan's sustainable society in the Edo period (1603-1867) at Energy Bulletin, originally published in the Japan For Sustainability Newsletter. This series of articles is one of my favorites. Read them if you want to know what sustainability is all about. -BA
