How to use one's life is a matter of thinking about "how to live".
Having this perspective from childhood can change the way you see the world,
the choices you make, and the way you live.

In order to make each person's life shine,
it is important to value your own sensitivity and
create your own compass through various experiences.

Taking care of your way of life means taking care of your own axis.
At the same time, it also leads to a way of life that respects others.

In order to realize such a world,
we give you time to reflect on your own life through LIFE Education®. ​


Look back at yourself, raise your self-affirmation, and create a “self-axis” to survive in the future.

However, in the field of education in Japan, There are many ways to learn to understand others (empathy) through morality, etc. There are very few opportunities to learn about self-understanding and self-dialogue.
As a result, Many people move forward without knowing what they really want to do what they like and dislike

Or how do you want to live?
When finding a job or making decisions about your life,
Because we didn't "face" on a regular basis
They don't know what to think about it. As a result, we often proceed based on vague senses and intuition.

Tokyo Mirai University × "LIFE®︎ Inochi" × Galaxcity

Tokyo Mirai University collaborated with LIFE®︎ Inochi and Galaxy City to integrate the program into the Department of Child Psychology (childcare education major, child psychology major). About 320 students visited the Galactic City Planetarium in Adachi Ward, Tokyo, and watched "LIFE Life" as part of the class.

After watching the program, we conducted a questionnaire to investigate changes in the state of mind. Seventy percent of child psychology students said they experienced a significant or slight change in their feelings. The program was followed by a lecture on LIFE education. Many students said that although they had taken many specialized lectures at university, they had never heard such a story and wished they had heard about it earlier. Several students said they were inspired and encouraged by the lectures. 

Published in the Asahi Shinbun Newspaper.

Experience the mysteries of the universe and life at the planetarium
At planetariums in Tokyo and elsewhere, we are showing video works that allow you to experience the birth of the universe and the subsequent evolution of mankind through video and sound.
The artist's wish in the work is that people should feel the splendor of being born in the vast universe.
The 25-minute work titled "LIFE Life-Reviving Birth Experience" was produced by Kobe-based singer-songwriter Masahiko Hashimoto (39) and his wife Sayaka (39).
Four years ago, Mr. Hashimoto sat his 1-year-old daughter on her lap at the planetarium, felt her body temperature, and looked at the scenery of space. "The vastness of the universe." From that moment on, I came up with the idea that I wanted to create a work that would make people feel the connection between the universe and life, in a space reminiscent of a mother's womb. It took three years to complete the work. A video of the birth of the universe by the big bang and the subsequent birth and disappearance of countless stars. The images then shift to pictures of sperm and egg fertilization, showing cell division, finger and toe development, and fetal growth.
Hashimoto has written songs and poems that focus on his family, but this is his first attempt at a video work. He wrote, directed, composed and narrated the film all by himself. It was a great achievement that a foreign photographer was able to obtain permission to use a photograph taken inside the womb using a special endoscopic camera. He explains, "Because it's not CG, but a real photo, it resonates with me." I want you to accept yourself as you are and realize the mystery of sexuality.
A preview event was held in 2017 to announce the completion of the film, and from the following year it has been screened in various places such as Hyogo and Nagano. Yuko Kotani, an associate professor at Tokyo Future University, watched the film with 320 students of the Department of Child Psychology. She describes her goal as follows. “I realized that the students lacked knowledge about sexuality and their low self-esteem. 

After watching the movie, about 70% of the students responded to a questionnaire that their feelings were greater or slightly changed. Many people expressed their impressions with words such as "life is wonderful" and "precious". Common feelings included wanting to meet and thank their parents, feeling like they had experienced a miracle, and being proud of themselves.

The film will be screened at the Galaxy City Planetarium in Adachi Ward, Tokyo until the 31st. A flat version was also produced in response to requests for screening at other venues. For inquiries, please email (So ​​Ueno)

A story to remember forever

— Elementary School Student

Once again,
I understand the meaning of life.
it's the most important day in a person's life.

— Elementary School Student


Witnessing the flow from the birth of the universe to the moment of birth, I felt the importance of what we have now. It gave me the courage to move forward.

— Elementary School Student

In the daily journey of raising children
(Like a withered rice field filled with water)
Humidity rises in the tingling and dry heart,
And I am once again reminded of the important and important existence of my child. 

— Parents


While watching the visuals with my two children,
I was truly moved when I held them close.
In that warmth, it reminded me of the feelings
towards my children that I had forgotten.
