The concept of Kyoto Platinum Collection is “Life gets more colorful and rich as you age. Live richly in the second stage with an eye on the third stage! ” .
“Third stage” here refers to the final chapter of life that requires physical and mental support. The platinum generation has a variety of experiences and values in the second stage.
Based on that experience, I want them to find ways and mindsets to enjoy life as they are now, even if they may need assistance in the third stage in the future. This is my wish.
I realized this when I took care of my mother. When the platinum stage shines, the third stage will become richer.
I am also undergoing human experimentation.

Introduction of Participating models
24 models gathered from all over Japan; from Hokkaido to Kyushu.They are all ordinary women who passed the document screening and online interview to become models.The ages ranged from 46 years old to a maximum of 88 years old, with an average age of 61 years old.
This is their first time walking in public. It is not a competition for beauty, but rather a place for each person to grow.
What we have prepared here is the “location” and what they can obtain is the “goal” that each one of them have set.
For the past three months, they have been working on self improvement to achieve their goals.

Message from Organizer
Thank you for visiting the ‘Kyoto Platinum Collection’ page. Allow me to share with you the thoughts that reside in my heart and the essence of this event.
Our era is now commonly referred to as the ‘100-Year Life Era.’ In this long life, we aim to contemplate and experience the significance of the midlife, or what is often called the ‘Second Stage.’ This has led to the creation of the ‘Kyoto Platinum Collection.’
The theme is, ‘Life gets more colorful and rich as we age. Live the Second Stage with an eye on the Third Stage!’ Here, the ‘Third Stage’ refers to the final chapter of life, where physical and mental support may be required. This event is a realization of how to enrich the Second Stage as we approach this Third Stage.”
My mother also participated as a model in the 1st Kyoto Platinum Collection held in 2019. I believe that her radiance and strength have brought courage and hope to many. The lesson learned through caring for my mother is that ‘caregiving is not just filial piety, but the final parenting a parent does.’
What preparations and attitudes are needed now to enrich ourselves for the later stages? I wish to share the answers to these questions through this event.
In the ‘100-Year Life Era,’ how we design our own lives and make them richer is a crucial consideration. I hope you can feel the hints along with the charm of the Platinum generation.
We eagerly await your participation.
