As you see in the logo for J-SOL5, the theme of our conference is "Resonate and Amplify". In 2005 in Interlaken something inside of me resonated with what SOL World people were offering in the conference. And since 2008 I have amplified IT in our own way with our colleagues in Japan in the form of J-SOL. People seem to resonate, and interestingly in different ways and they amplify what they like after the gathering. This year we are going to welcome Peter Sundman as the key note speaker, Mark Mckergow, Jenny Clark, Michael Hjerth, Simon Lee, Liselotte Baeijart, Dominik Godat & Sabrina Lorentz as workshop presenters. Of course, we have Japanese solutionists presenting the success stories in organizations or giving workshops. So we have 15 workshops, two plenary sessions and open space. In addition, we will be offered pre-conference seminars by Peter, Liselotte, Doimik&Sabrina, Michael, Simon and Mark. So what kind of resonance will we experience? What will each of us or together amplify?

I am so excited about that!!!

It is so happy to hold J-SOL in Kyoto. This is the first time in Kyoto. Kyoto is ancient capital of Japan. So many temples and beautiful gardens. The other look, 10% of the population is composed of Kyoto students. Town of "Now and Then". Also Zen. hahaha
And I want to have a meeting and sharing about a career education systems and contents for univesity students and high school students.

Dear solutionists of the world,
On behalf of the J-SOL 5 organizing team I would like to invite you to our fifth national SF conference to be held in Kyoto, Japanese ancient capital city, on the weekend of June 23rd-24th 2012. The official language is Japanese, but we will provide a small guidebook in English and also whispering translator throughout the conference. It’s the way we Japanese group participate in the past SOL conferences with headsets and wireless transmitter as you might have noticed. Since most of the people on this list live in Europe and Japan is very far away, we would like to add a special sightseeing package so that it will be worthwhile for you just to come. Ruiko Aoki will be your tour guide. She is currently a student at Kyoto University of Art and Design and is eager to be an entertaining hostess to you. And some of you might want to contribute a workshop in the conference. We will provide a translator for that also.   
We value the international diversity and cross cultural exchange of views and ways we utilize SF. Therefore, we would like to welcome foreign participants. Since our first conference (J-SOL1), we have had the honor of welcoming Mark Mckergow, Jenny Clark, Kirsten Dierolf, Peter Szabo, Stephanie von Bidder, Monika Houck, George Agafitei, Fredrike Bannink, Simon Lee and Michael Hjerth. And you can read the English report of J-SOL1 on this link;

The price and the details will be posted later. We appreciate it very much if you could send me an email just to show your interest in this trip even before you make final decision. If there is even a tiny bit of possibility for you to come, please send a simple “Hi” mail to with just your name and a simple line saying you are interested in participating in J-SOL 5. I will send you more details later.
Thank you for reading this posting.
With a deep bow

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
