Big surprise

One major aspect in Japan is respect, manners, politeness, and honor. Shinji flew into Japan on 6/2/2021 and this event became a Japanese aviation historical moment because there is no one eyed pilot in Japan. A handicapped pilot flew into Japan was a major mile stone for Japanese diversity. However, Shinji was not able to hold two emotions at same time - “thank you” and “no thank you”. Deepest thanks to his supporters because they came to see him without telling Shinji. It was a huge surprise. However, Japanese Quarantine officers treated Shinji as disease, not as a flight crew. It was just disrespectful by using abusive language and behaviors. Everybody has emotion, so does Shinji. Shinji never forgets about this day because it was just not right.
