This is what I wanted to say. This is my first tweet from space!
ZOZO founder Yusaku Maezawa, who is currently on the International Space Station (ISS), tweeted for the first time from space. Mr. Maezawa is the first Japanese private citizen to travel in space, so this is a historic tweet as it is.
Mr. Maezawa loves ‘firsts’ and his dream is to leave his name to posterity in any form. I’m sure he was deeply moved by the moment when he realized his dream,” said a sports journalist.
However, I have the impression that there is a lack of excitement in Japan. The topic of conversation is not Maezawa himself, but rather the fact that people are saying to him
“I’m not interested.
“I’m not interested,” “I don’t care if I’m shown a rich man’s hobby.
I’m not interested,” and “I don’t care if I’m shown a rich man’s hobby.
Anyone can go as long as they pay. It might give me a sense of accomplishment, but I don’t know. I guess it’s a sense of accomplishment, but it’s also time-consuming.
This is a tweet. Mr. Tamagawa’s comments were controversial, and even House of Councillors member Renho joined in.
I honestly thought it was amazing. I thought it was honestly amazing that he was able to realize his dream of space travel with the money he saved. It may be a “rich man’s dream. But it’s a shame to deny people the power to make their dreams come true.
What was bizarre was the launch on the evening of the 8th. It was broadcast live on Maezawa’s official YouTube site, and in the comments section, along with the congratulations, there were many comments saying, ‘Hurry up and give me money,’ while ignoring the feat.
Maezawa, who calls himself the “money giver,” promised to distribute money from space to his Twitter followers.
He promised to distribute money from space to his Twitter followers. The amount of money per person will not be the same for everyone, but will be decided by lottery among several patterns. Of course, everyone will win. I hope you enjoy it.”
He made a clear statement. The chorus of “give us money” was based on this, but it was clear that the mood was different from that of Japanese astronauts such as Mamoru Mohri, Soichi Noguchi, and Koichi Wakata.
Eventually, civilian space travel will become the norm. The reaction to Mr. Maezawa will become the standard for the future. This is one of the interesting events.
On the other hand, what about television? Although they reported the news, they did not repeat the news every day like they did with Mako’s marriage. This is because, among other things, the key commercial broadcasters are “allergic to Maezawa.
For example, in 2006 when he was in a relationship with actress Ayame Tsuyoshi, Maezawa made a counter-offer to appear in NTV’s travelogue program “Another Sky,” but cancelled the offer just before the shooting.
In January of last year, after his breakup with Tsuyoshi, Maezawa also proposed a blind date to Abema TV. In January of last year, after his breakup with Tsuyoshi, Maezawa approached Abema TV with a proposal for a blind date, but canceled it for “personal reasons.
Mr. Maezawa’s enthusiasm for the project was not met. In order to respond to Mr. Maezawa’s enthusiasm, we held auditions for the blind date, but it was cancelled with a single word, ‘I’m done. I felt sorry for the staff who were pushed around by her,” said a source familiar with the situation.
It is said that a certain entertainment production executive who has a strong influence in the TV industry, seeing the trouble many people suffered due to Maezawa’s change of heart, issued a “no” order, saying, “You’d better not get involved with him anymore! It is also heard that a certain entertainment production executive, who has been working with Mr. Maezawa for a long time, saw the trouble that many people went through because of his change of heart and ordered him to stop working with him.
In the TV industry, Maezawa’s reputation is not good as a free spirit. Even with the advancement of the Internet and AI, in the end, it is people who make the final decision. That’s why, when they take up space travel, they say, ‘Let’s just take it easy.
Mr. Maezawa is said to have spent nearly 10 billion yen on space travel. It is said that Mr. Maezawa spent nearly 10 billion yen on his space trip, but I wonder if the results were worth the cost.
