一期一会 (Ichi-go ichi-e) Treasuring the Unrepeatable Nature of a Moment - Cyberpunk Tokyo - Three Wings Tribe #001

Think of all the people you meet in your lifetime.


What if you recognized each of those encounters as irreplicable, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, and gave them your utmost presence and attention? Literally translated into ichi (one) go (time) ichi (one) e (meeting/encounter).

ichi-go ichi-e is an old Japanese proverb that means "one opportunity, one encounter." It can also be interpreted as "for this time only," "never again," and "one chance in a lifetime." Rooted in Buddhist philosophy, the term ichigo means "from one's birth to death."
