As I posted in the other thread:

Masato is professor emeritus at Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo, it seems. There are quite a few people with the same name. This Wikipedia page (on a Japanese version of Auld Lang Syne) makes it clear which is the right one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aogeba_t%C5%8Dtoshi

I couldn't trace him using Hitotsubashi U's website. I have seen him listed as co-author of a few papers, but they aren't free to download and the abstracts don't give email addresses.

Perhaps it's time to use the Google People Finder?

"About the Tohoku Earthquake off the Pacific Coast

The massive earthquake that occurred off the coast of the Northeastern (Tohoku) region of Japan on March 11, 2011 caused unprecedented damage and devastation. I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the many victims of this disaster.

Hitotsubashi University is working to confirm the safety of all University students. Please respond as soon as possible to the e-mail from the University sent to confirm the safety of each student. If you have any questions or require advice, please do not hesitate to contact the University.

The University is considering appropriate responses to the various problems arising from the disaster. As soon as decisions are made on such matters, details will be posted on this page. " from http://hit-u.ac.jp/eng/news/2011/0315_1.html
*********************************
It will take some time for the University to verify the safety and location of its students and current staff. We'll need additional patience to verify Masato's safety unless someone here has a way to contact him directly; I doubt the University would appreciate multiple emails from us.

Masato Sakurai posted regularly on Mudcat upto 2011, on the occasion of an earthquake in Japan. One of our most erudite contributors, he has not been heard of since. There are those of us who know when the time is right to move on to other things, and those of us who will keep going as long as we can.
Unfortunately, sometimes there are those of us who feel a little loss when one of our number is no longer active on the site (and there are many of these who kept us enlightened and amused over the years). For the most part, we know where the story ends, but sometimes our inert curiosity just needs that closure...so Masato Sukurai (Mudcat contributor---for there may be others of the same name) where are you, how are you doing these days?
It would be re-assuring to know that you are ticking over well.
Certainly, if there were any plaudits for your Mudcat contributions, then you would justifiably be in receipt of many!

A Japanese Professor emeritus (which is who he is) might find the recent behaviour on this site rather demeaning, I'd be worried you may have lost his support. I work not far below that level and the morlocks here would dearly like to have a go at me recently. Robust debate is one thing, what's been going on here another, and he may have walked away: someone he values should contact him at his university and apologise - after sorting out the mess here.

Why not contact him directly through his University email, Bob? You've not been involved in the offensive behaviour and you might help your interest by telling him certain people have calmed down here. I don't know for certain what's up, but as I work on the Warburg Institute at Research Fellowship level researching aspects of mediaeval and early renaissance philosophy, from the viewpoint of a pure academic I have been more than normally insulted myself by them, they went far beyond robust behaviour. The academic world can be rough too, true, but never so ill-behaved as recently here, and I can well imagine a Japanese professor may have been far more sensitive than a Brit.
It may equally be any number of other things, his work taking him in another direction, or I don't know what. But unless someone takes an initiative, you'll never find out and never be able to set matters right if they're wrong.

Guest, by implication, you appear to be saying "he is around". We trust he is ok too. We do not wish to pursue this to the nth degree, merely to know that he is "ok". I do not know who his employers are, so not able to contact by email
Not being an in depth reader of this forum, I do not know of the "offensive behaviour" to which you refer (apart from the usual trolls) -- and I wonder if you are inferring that any of this was directed at Masato. It's just that the question lies unanswered -- like someone lost the letter of resignation.

Offensive behaviour happens in certain (avoidable) threads. And not in others.

As far as I can recall (and I'm only going by memory), the conversations that Masato contributed so richly to were not on volatile topics where the nastiness tended to crop up. (Someone please don't post links if I'm wrong - I'll take your word for it!!)

Therefore, the flaming is easy to miss. If you want to miss it.

I've always appreciated Masato's wise and helpful input too, hope he is well, and would love to see him back.

Popular school song traced to 19th-century U.S. book
KYODO NEWS

JAN 26, 2011


A university professor in Tokyo says he has found the original version of a song that is often sung at graduation ceremonies in Japan in a music book published in the United States in 1871, clearing up a long-standing mystery about the song’s origins.

Masato Sakurai, a professor emeritus at Hitotsubashi University, said the melody and fermata musical notations of the original “Song for the Close of School” are exactly the same as the Japanese school song “Aogeba Totoshi,” which bids farewell to teachers and the years spent at school.

The words of the U.S. song were written by T.H. Brosnan and the music by someone known only as H.N.D., but there is little information about them, according to Sakurai, 67, who researches English philology as well as folk songs from Britain and the United States.

Sakurai has been conducting research on the original versions of school songs over the past 10 years and found the entry for “Song for the Close of School” earlier this month when he was looking at classic songbooks and carols.

The original song is about saying goodbye to friends and classrooms, according to Sakurai.

“There were no documents in Japan to help us track down the origin of the song and it is no longer known in the United States,” Sakurai said. “I hope more will be found out (about the song and the writers) in the future.”

Possible, Haruo - but I don't want to push too far and invade his privacy. You know I'm a retired investigator and I'm very good at tracking people down - but I also know when not to.

What a shame.
Masato's post here is his latest Mudcat post --
may it not be his last.
