Shindo admires Ryoma Sakamoto; he was a visionary and pioneer who made some great contributions to the modernization of Japan. Shindo was greatly influenced by Ryoma’s way of life as well as his belief and ideology.
Shindo was so influenced by Ryoma that he as a framed quote hanging on his wall that says; “whatever people may say about me, I know what I am doing.” This quote has been an inspiration to Shindo and whenever he faced with a new challenge he recalls this quote and follows his dream with renewed passion.
Whatever people may say about me,
I know what I am doing
