What are the leadership qualities of women in a country built by women?
There is a small island called Kudaka-jima, which is inhabited by only 153 households.
I went around the spiritual hot spots by bicycle.
Kutaka Island is a sacred place where the creator goddess Amamikyo (female) descended from the heavens and established the Ryukyu Kingdom.
Not a single grain of sand should be taken home. The island was created by a woman, but it is also run entirely by women. Even today, there are places where men are not allowed.
The “Noro” system, created during the Ryukyu Kingdom, has been passed down through the generations, and at “Isaiho,” a secret festival held once every 12 years, women between the ages of 30 and 41 who were born on Kutaka Island are called “Nantu” (goddess). The ceremony is called a “ritual of the gods” and involves the bestowal of divine powers. Unfortunately, it has not been held since 1978 due to a lack of successors, and the reason why it was not held in 1990 was due to the attraction of tourism during the bubble economy. I think it might be. In the end nothing was developed… I hope it will be back in November 2026.
In the face of the Corona disaster, the inadequacy of male leadership was exposed worldwide. In contrast, women leaders were wonderful. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, and Germany’s Angel Chancellor La Merkel, and Icelandic Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir.
On the business side, Meredith Kopit-Levian, 49, is the new CEO of The New York Times, and Uniqlo The appointment of 40-year-old Maki Akaida as CEO is just one example of the success of women in the industry.
Now is the time for male businessmen to study and incorporate the special qualities that women possess. Not just to improve their status.
Women are more likely to be “innovative leaders” than men.
