OSAKA, JAPAN: 生き甲斐 (IKIGAI) “REASON FOR BEING”

“Ikigai (生き甲斐) is a Japanese concept meaning “a reason for being”. Everyone, according to the Japanese, has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as being very important, since it is believed that discovery of one’s ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.” (wiki)
