People live in several communities, whether they want to or not. We live wrapped up in layers of communities, such as our families, workplaces, and neighborhoods. And we are influenced in various ways, for good or ill, by the customs, systems, expectations, and other forces of the community.
In this way, people and their behavior are influenced by the community, but people also have the power to change the internal conditions of the community.
I am conducting research to find the causes and solutions to various problems and issues in society by imagining that people and communities exist together while constantly fluctuating and influencing each other in this way.
It is necessary to understand the phenomena that occur between “people and communities,” which are difficult to see and different entities. For this purpose, I deal with both quantitative data, which can be expressed in numerical values and qualitative data, which can be expressed in words and pictures, such as people’s thoughts and actions.
In recent years, I have been focusing my research activities on the field of day-care services as a place where “people and communities” come into contact. I have been working with professional practitioners, service users, and other interested parties to conduct research from conception to interpretation, using a method known as “citizen science” to unravel various phenomena occurring in the real world in a more vivid manner, while proposing solutions to problems and implementing the solutions in society. This is a method known as “citizen science,” which is used to unravel various phenomena occurring in the real world in a more vivid manner, and to propose solutions to problems quickly and implement the solutions in society.
