Jigorō Kanō

He was born to a family who was a wholesaler and ran a brewery in Kobe, 1860. The family supported KATSU Kaishū.

In 1870, his father started working for the Meiji Government so he studied in Tokyo and entered Tokyo University in 1877. But he was bullied by his classmates and tried to strengthen himself by practicing jūjutsu, the predecessor of judo. After that he founded judo and established Kōdō-kan, a gym to practice it. Later judo was adopted as a required subject in the high school under the old system that were only for boys. 

In 1891, he became a principal of Daigo Kōtō Gakkō (No.5 High School, one of the institutions of higher education) in Kumamoto, present Kumamoto University. He was also a deputy head of Gakushūin and a principal of Tōkyō Kōtō Shihan Gakkō, present Tsukuba University. He made efforts to spread sports in Japan and participated in establishing Nippon Joshi Daigaku, Japan Women's University.

In 1909, he became a first Asian member of the IOC and established Dai Nippon Taiiku Kyōkai, present Japan Sports Association to make Japanese athletes join the Olympic Games. In 1936, he succeeded in hosting the 1940 Olympics in Tokyo.

However he died of pneumonia on the way to Yokohama from Vancouver after taking part in the IOC session in Cairo, 1938. After the death, he was awarded the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun. 

The 1940 Olympics was cancelled due to the outbreak of the World War II and his dream realised in 1964.

He had seven children between his wife Sumako and was a member of the House of Peers.  Kanō Jigorō hai (Jigorō Kanō Cup) is named after him.

まず、一部の記事関連でレイアウトが崩れるようですので修復していますが、何かおかしな点があれば指摘していただけると幸いです。それから当ブログでは、相互リンクは受け付けておりませんので悪しからずご了承ください。

『西郷どん』復習の投稿をアップしている一方で、『鎌倉殿の13人』の感想も書いています。そしてパペットホームズの続編ですが、これも『鎌倉殿の13人』終了後に三谷氏にお願いしたいところです。

他にも国内外の文化や歴史、刑事ドラマについても、時々思い出したように書いています。ラグビー関連も週1またはそれ以上でアップしています。2019年、日本でのワールドカップで代表は見事ベスト8に進出し、2022年秋には強豪フランス代表、そしてイングランド代表との試合も予定されています。そして2023年は次のワールドカップ、今後さらに上を目指してほしいものです。
