I'm Shiho Sato, a Laughter Yoga Teacher. So, I have been invited to lectures on Laughter Yoga at more than 600 locations around the world, including Japan, and have shared smiles with more than 50,000 people. And after 23 years in early childhood education, these children's worlds continue to be happy and they are focusing on activities that are wrapped in a lot of love. In 2018, Japan's first laughing yoga picture book 'Hohohaha' was born. The picture book was read aloud at the 2019 Australia Laughter Festival and was unveiled at the conference. It was a moment that I had looked forward to. I was keenly aware that child-rearing concerns are common throughout the world.
In 2020, the Amazon Kindle English translation picture book was born. We hope that one picture book will create a society where everyone in the world can share and encourage each other with the joy of increasing smiles on their families. I hope all of you will reach out to everyone in the world who is looking for laughing happiness.
