Ken Uchikura Newsletter Vol. 199 How the Internet is Changing Distribution

thread
Ken Uchikura Newsletter Vol. ...

How the Internet is Changing Distribution



The internet has changed many businesses. I believe the most significant change is how close the distance between producers and consumers has become. For example, we used to consult with a travel agent and schedule our trips when traveling abroad. It was convenient for both the consumer and the distributor. It eliminated the need to secure human resources and locations, which was a clear advantage. However, this business model doesn’t work the same way now. Today, moving travel agencies online is easier and cheaper as they provide the same services. However, it unclear what will happen to these online agencies in the future.

When I travel for business, I use online agencies for air travel. But for hotels, I try to book directly from the hotel’s website. Although it’s typically more expensive, there’s more flexibility with cancellations and other possible changes when booking directly through the hotel’s website. After the travel industry, I believe the automobile sales industry will change next. In the U.S., dealerships generally handle sales. However, Tesla’s changing this model.

Now, people buy cars online. There’s no price negotiation or anything. Also, manufacturers can have more access to the end-user information, which they couldn’t do before. In the U.S., Ford is working hard to promote this consumer tie-in. Instead of the dealer holding the inventory, the manufacturer will sell the product to the consumer at a fixed price. Then, the dealer will provide delivery and support. I feel that this change will continue to progress in various industries.

The internet's power is in the hands of the consumer and the manufacturer. Intermediary margins will become smaller and smaller. I think we need to understand this and always think of new business models. As a software developer and manufacturer, my company needs to consider what we can offer.

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

thread
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
Before my liver surgery, I was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) for years. The recommend salt intake for CKD people in the US is 2g (2,000mg) or two test spoons. That sounds a lot but it is not much. If you eat one cup-a-noodle, your intake is about 1.5g (75% of your daily intake). One BigMac and small fries have about 1g of salt.

When I go to Japan, I Preallyhave to be very careful how much salt I take in especially I will be eating eating out a lot. The recommended salt intake for CKD people in Japan is 6g ... three times as much in Japan. In the US, people average take in 3.5g of salt a day compared to 11g in Japan. No wonder there are more CKD in Japan.

Ken Uchikura Newsletter Vol. 198 You Have to be Different

thread
Ken Uchikura Newsletter Vol. ...

You Have to be Different



In Japanese society, we learn that it’s right to think normally, blend in with our surroundings, and be inconspicuous. Therefore, they consider unusual and uncommon thoughts wrong. If you do something different from everyone else, people will label you as a “weirdo” or they will say you’re “without common sense”. In short, to live in Japanese society, you’re expected to speak or act like those around you. There’s an old Japanese saying: “The nail that sticks out gets hammered down”. It demonstrates the belief that punishment will come for anyone who goes beyond the bounds.

This environment in Japan is not conducive to creating new things or inventions. However, because there are many hardworking people that follow this ideology, various fields have already developed technologies to improve what already exists.

I entered the workforce at the end of Japan’s economic growth period, when Japan was at the top of the world’s manufacturing industry. It was wonderfully vibrant as the economy boomed, and people were busy. Frequently, I traveled on the Shinkansen standing, up between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka. I remember working six days a week. Many Japanese people visited Hawaii and other tourist destinations, and I often saw signs in Japanese. Of the 50 most valuable companies in the world at that time, more than 30 were Japanese companies. Today, Toyota is the only Japanese company whose name remains in the ranking.

This was the conventional wisdom at the time. Manufacturing moved from Japan to China due to labor cost issues, most IT-related industries went overseas, and cell phone technology also exists predominantly overseas. This is probably because we’ve only been working within the same bounds of everyone else and failed to catch up with the trends of the times. That being said, Japan doesn’t have the blue-collar labor force to promote manufacturing right now. Food comes from overseas, and they import it to Japan. And they also import many building materials and machinery. The fact is they make many Japanese brand products overseas.

However, importing products from abroad involves transportation costs. Transportation also requires energy, and some things are better procured nearby from an environmental standpoint. The idea of not relying on foreign countries and making efforts to increase domestic self-sufficiency would probably sound insane to Japan today. However, if you look at other countries around the world, countries, the U.S. included, are beginning to think about increasing self-sufficiency. If the current norm is wrong, I’d like to see Japan’s ability to improve it. I’m also doing business in the U.S., and I intend to explore ways that go beyond the current framework. It is wonderful that there’s an environment that recognizes companies that do this. Even small companies like mine. Perhaps this is the American dream.
