Next, I was transffered to U.S.A. I lived in south bay of Los Angeles in California for one year.
The third asignment was for New York (New Jersey side) and lived there for next six and half years.
I was a sales manager in the company and travled to south, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Tennessee, North and South
Carolina, Ilinois, Ohio and Michigan in midwest states. Almost all east coast states such as Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia,
Meryland, Washington D.C., Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusettes, New Hampshire and Toronto, Montreal in
Canada. I used to flu and drove.
Mainly, I took airplane for those business trips. The total number of flight will be 2 times a month, 48 times a month, more than
1000 times for past 25 years.
During those flights, I had no air turburance or seriouse insidents which passengers fly in the cabin or rain of coffee.
Air plane is very safe transportation divice.
Sometimes, I drove a car to Toronto, Canada. It's nine hours drive. It's long time, but I could enjoy the Niagara Falls on the
way to or from Canada. If I use airplane, it is not possible.
The longest business trip by a car I made was to St.Luis, MO.
On the way to St. Luis, I did a job in Ohio and drove to St. Luis. On the way back to New Jersey, I drove 15 hours
from the town to Fort Lee, NJ. I made 2 times refueling to come to NJ. The average speed on the trip was 96 Km/h for
15 hours. The most of the driving time, I had to maintain 110km/h or I could not make 96km/h average speed.
It is longer time than a flight for a B747 from J.F.K. airport to Tokyo.
It's not difficult to drive 110km/h, but not be captured by a highway plice for 15 hours was a difficult task.
Do not copy my driving speed and time. If you do, you will be ticketed.
After six and half years living in New Jersey, U.S.A., I moved (was transfered) to Dusseldorf, Germany.
There're about 400 Japanese company's branch offices and subsidary companies in the city at that time.
1% of the population of the city was Japanese businessmen and their family members.
10% of total tax income for the city has come from those companies and families, it's said at that time.
For this reason, the local government of Dusseldorf always welcomed Japanese businessmen.
They offered succer stadium which is capacity of 50,000 audiences in it for Japanese society if they needed for
their sports festival etc. for their school events.
I made a lot of business trips from Dusseldorf for Koeln, Frankfurt, Sttutgart, Hamburg, Berlin and Bremen domestically.
Internationally, I went to France, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Luxenburg, Checho Republic, Austria and Turkey or Russia.
I did not want to go last two, so I sent my assistant people there.
In Germany, I spoke German, French in France and Geneva, Switzerland and Belgium. In Holland, a lot of people speak
not only Dutche but English, also.
After five years living in Germany, I moved back to New Jersey again and lived there for next eight and half years before
At present, I am selfemployed and doing business for video production, website design, moving consaltant and limousine car
During I was working in those cities and countries, I had many unique experiences.
I will write about thoese experiences in just three minutes for each episode.
