In 2009, with financial aid from IFAC, of which he is the chairman, a Visiting Artist Chair in Vocal Arts was set up to invite outstanding artists to The Juilliard School. Since then, a system has existed for auditions for admission to The Juilliard School to be held in Japan.

Philanthropic activities

He holds that private sector philanthropy is truly vibrant philanthropy because it meets the following three criteria: "It should help people with disabilities and those facing hard times achieve self-realization", "when the private sector engages in philanthropy, it is important that it is not too big – and it should be a unique form of philanthropy that demonstrates real outcomes and gives a real sense of joy to those actually engaging in the philanthropy", and "it should allow people to communicate heart to heart".[122]

Blind golf

Establishment of the Japanese Blind Golf Association

He introduced blind golf to Japan in 1988 by establishing its first Blind Golf Club.[1][123] He is Honorary Chairman of the Japanese Blind Golf Association[124] and Honorary President of the International Blind Golf Association.[note 4][125] He became aware of the need for philanthropy for sight-impaired people when he heard Shinjiro Matsui (at the time director of the Japan Vocational Development Center for the Blind), who served as first Chairman of the Japanese Blind Golf Association, say the words: Visually impaired people in particular are stuck in an unfavorable environment in comparison with various other types of disabilities. In 1987, the year prior to his blind golf undertakings, he was at a golf course in Perth, Australia, and was deeply moved by the very cheerful demeanor of some blind golfers there, as well as their excellent play. Later on at a seminar he held, he was impressed by the following words from Yasuko Ichibangase, then a professor at Japan Women's University: Philanthropy should help people with disabilities to achieve self-fulfillment. Thus, he came to think that the starting point of philanthropic activities should be to offer a place and an environment where people with disabilities can realize their potential. Because the blind golfers he witnessed playing in Australia were the most cheerful, pleasant, and happy people with a disability he had ever met, he began developing worldwide activities to promote blind golf as social contribution through golf in the private sector.[126]

Once again golf will be an official sport at the 2016 Olympics, and he is working to spread blind golf so that it may be adopted as an official sport in the 2020 Paralympics.[1]

Establishment of the International Blind Golf Association

In 1997, he called on blind golfers and blind golf associations throughout the world for the establishment of the International Blind Golf Association (IBGA).[127] As of March 2014, 18 organizations had joined the International Blind Golf Association,[128] with he serving as Honorary President.[28]

Promotion of disability classification in golf

He launched the ISPS Handa PGA Academy Program in January 2012 to disseminate disability classification in golf and to provide British PGA pro golfers with the qualifications to coach disabled golfers, through the ISPS and the PGA in the United Kingdom.[129]

He is working to spread disabled golf throughout the world, with the goal of it becoming an official sport in the Paralympics.[1][130] And in Japan, where disabled golf is still not an official sport in national sports competitions for the disabled, he has been driving a movement for its adoption as an official sport in the National Athletic Meet.

Through ISPS, he supported a disabled golf tournament as a demonstration event at the Sports Festival Tokyo 2013 (a joint national sporting event combining the 68th National Athletic Meet and the 13th National Disabled Sports Meet).

Philanthropic activities in England

With outlays from World Mate for the hospital's operating costs running into the hundreds of millions each year, World Mate and HOPE Worldwide (an NGO engaged in charity projects in 75 countries worldwide) are working together as equal partners in this philanthropic project.[134]

On June 2, 2002, he organized a Charity Concert in celebration of Takefu Fuchu Rotary Club's 25th anniversary at Takefu City Culture Hall under the auspices of the Fukui Shimbun.

The fund has delivered relief donations and rice to the victims on five occasions, while at the same time recording the experiences of the remaining family members. As of February 2009, 3,703 families affected by the Khmer Rouge genocide had received these relief donations.[138]

In honor of these meritorious deeds, he was bestowed with the titles of Commander of the Royal Order of Monisaraphon and Grand Officer of the Royal Order of Sowathara.

Philanthropic activities in China

The International Foundation for Arts and Culture (IFAC) decided in March 2000 to support the China Children and Teenagers' Fund to construct 100 Shunrai (spring bud) Elementary Schools in China. The project involves IFAC working together with the local boards of education as well as the China Children and Teenagers' Fund to construct 10 Shunrai Elementary Schools every year in impoverished regions of China, for a total of 100 schools (later increased to 130).[139] Under this project, in addition to providing support for constructing school buildings and buying equipment and furnishings, libraries with over 1,000 books as well as slides, computers, and other equipment are also being donated. For the school opening ceremony, an outdoor stage was built for a special cultural event. Comedian Jiāng Kūn was invited, and the event featured Peking Opera, a traditional theatrical art in China, as well as songs, dances, comic skits, and other performances to the enjoyment of many locals.[140][141][142][143] As of 2009, construction of 100 of the 130 schools had been completed.[122]

As part of the China Children and Teenagers' Fund's Shunrai Project promoted by the All-China Women's Federation, IFAC, which he heads, provided tuition aid for 30 outstanding students from 11 impoverished ethnic minority regions throughout China in the Shunrai class at a Hepingli Middle School in Beijing to continue their education at a high school in Hong Kong. These costs were being covered by an entrepreneur, however it was expected to be cut off because of poor business conditions.[144] He met 30-plus Shunrai Class students for the first time at the Japanese and Chinese Artists – Toshu Fukami and Yuan Xikun Art Exhibition held in July 2001.[145] In June 2007, all 30 members of the Shunrai Class graduated from university without a hitch.[146] Because of his connection as a Cultural and Economic Adviser to the city of Dunhuang, China, IFAC has donated the tuition fees for 100 Dunhuang orphans under the Support for the Schooling of 100 Orphans Plan, under his leadership, since June 2001. In September 2001, the Second Toshu Shunrai Class was set up at Shuren School, a private elementary school in Beijing, and aid was donated for the tuition of 32 students. Tuition fees were also donated to the Shunrai Arts Class at Tianjin Sanmao Art School, composed of 11 female students with exceptional artistic talent.[146]

Aiming to promote traditional Chinese culture and help it flourish, he established the Plastic, Creative and Performing Arts and Academic Research Achievement Award within the Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China. Now every year artists and researchers who have produced excellent results with noteworthy creations or research in art, calligraphy, traditional arts, performing arts, and so on are selected and honored under this award scheme. In May 2002, the first recipients of the award were seven plastic artists and four performing artists in their 70s and 80s, all with a 60-year history in the arts. This award scheme is the first of its kind in China, and is the only lifetime achievement award scheme aimed at artists and art theory scholars that is being undertaken by the government of China.[147][148][149]

In June 2002, he was nominated in the top ten Chinese children's welfare philanthropists for his contributions to children's welfare in China as head of the IFAC, and was commended by the Ministry of Civil Affairs of the People's Republic of China.

When Taishimei Koizumi, an authority on Shintoism, was struck down by illness in his eighties, he instructed his close advisor, Takao Fujinami (a former Cabinet Secretary), again and again to invite Handa to meet him. Apparently these were the only times Taishimei Koizumi ever sought a meeting with anyone.[155]

Handa studied Buddhism under the late Chanting Master, Reverend Denchu Amano, Daisōjō of the Tendai and in 1998 he took lay ordination with the authorization of the Tendai Zasu (the head priest at Mount Hiei Enryaku-ji).[156] He has also been recognized by the late Reverend Keido Fukushima, Abbot of Tōfuku-ji of the Rinzai school, and was given the lay practitioner name of Daigaku (大岳).

In the belief that the power of sports can serve to make a more peaceful society, he has been promoting contributions to society and philanthropic activities through sports. In 2003, he established the International Sports Promotion Society based on the idea that if the golf world as a whole were to be invigorated and its vision broadened, the world of blind golf would grow too. The organization has launched efforts to support senior golf, women's senior golf, junior golf, and so on. He is trying new forms of golf tournaments, such as holding pro-am matches at each tournament, and holding mixed tournaments to deepen interaction by forming teams combining pros, amateurs, and blind golfers.[160] He is currently promoting efforts in support of other sports including bowling, archery, and rowing. In 2010, he was bestowed with the Asia-Pacific Golf Personality Award.[161]

These tournaments are held as philanthropic events[note 5] in which not only the proceeds but also part of the prize money is donated by the athletes to philanthropic organizations. He also holds many sporting events where athletes can play regardless of nationality, age, gender, or a handicap.[162]

Foundation of the International Sports Promotion Society

When he held a tournament in 2003 at Kobe Golf Club to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Japanese Blind Golf Association, he was deeply impressed by what club members told him and thereupon decided to contribute to society through golf. The next year, 2004, he was told by the women's pro golfer Masumi Inaba that official women's senior tournaments existed only in the United States, and Japanese female senior pro golfers had no opportunities to compete. Thereupon, he approached the US Women's Senior Golf Association (currently The Legends Tour), and the First World Senior Golf Ladies Open Tournament, an official U.S. Women's Seniors event, was held in Japan for the first time in April 2005 (under the joint auspices of the Japanese Blind Golf Association [JBGA], the International Blind Golf Association (IBGA), and The Legends Tour [Women's Senior Golf Association][note 6]). Then, in June that year, the JBGA, of which he is the Honorary Chairman, held the JBGA Senior Ladies Cup in cooperation with the Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association (JLPGA). This event was the impetus for two more official women's senior golf tournaments, and since then several official senior women golf tournaments have been held in Japan every year.

Later on in 2006, the Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association (JLPGA) launched the Japanese Ladies Senior Pro registration system and held the first QT (qualifying tournament) for Japanese Ladies Senior golfers.

These contributions to golf's success resulted in the 2006 launch of an annual women's senior pro tournament sponsored by the Legends Tour,[163] the Handa Cup (Handa being his real surname), as a Legends Tour event in the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup.[164][165] The tournament's title was changed to the ISPS Handa Cup in 2013.

Notes

  1. ^ Ami originated in the Buddhist invocation NAMU AMI DABUTSU (I sincerely believe in Amitabha;Lord have mercy on me). He thinks Ami has two meanings: the first one is that according to his interpretation, Namu means a believer who is equal to a secular person, and DABUTSU represents Buddha, as a monk. As the text shows, AMI is found between NAMU and DABUTSU, so that he thinks that it means to be neither a believer nor a monk, as well as to be both a believer and a monk; and the second meaning is that the Amis in the past were artists who had striven to enhance their souls through artistic practices and dedication for improvement until the last moment of their lives, and could be regarded as Japan's Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo, who contributed to the creation of the Japanese culture of today. He regards that Ami is a representation of the way of life in Japanese-style Renaissance. He named himself Toto Ami , as his declaration I will live like Ami throughout my life for enhancing, deepening and polishing my soul, and I will cheerfully and funnily die enjoying them, while creating a lot of works in that process.
