I have lived exactly as I've wanted to up until now. For 21 years, I've been working running around as a company president, causing lots of people to worry along the way, but also receiving a lot of love and support from people, too. In the end, I've been able to put a temporary end to that brilliant life as company president.
I'm sure I've been able to acquire my share of money, social status, and fame along the way. But now I'm restarting my life. I'm 44 now. As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to surge upon me, there's one thing that I think about: Continuing to love one woman.
While it's something that is taken for granted by everyone, it's something that I haven't quite been able to do until now. When I got the offer to go on this program, I was first taken over by emotions of embarrassment and pride, and I thought about refusing the offer. The more I thought about it, however, I started to think a chance like this might not come around again.
I started to think that this was a good chance to seriously face up to the idea of "continuing to love one woman" which I'd only really had a hazy image about. I made my decision and finally decided to go on the program.I want to find a "life partner". With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space.
I look forward to meeting someone amazing.

Born in Japan. After high school, I made my rock band debut. I then founded a fashion EC ‘ZOZOTOWN’. TSE-listed and gained a market worth of US$15 billion. In Sept. 2019, I sold it to Softbank Group and stepped down as CEO. My net worth is now US$2 billion (Forbes).
I have a passion for collecting contemporary art, Japanese antiques, supercars, wine etc. Some people know me for purchasing J.M.Basquiat’s $110 million painting. I will be the first civilian to fly around the moon on SpaceX's Starship rocket, scheduled to launch in 2023.
In 2019, I did a 100 million yen giveaway on Twitter (1M yen to 100 winners). I hold the record for the most retweeted tweet.
In 2020, I did a giveaway of up to 1 billion yen.
This social experiment will study the effects of UBI.
Will you be happier if you were given 1M yen?
