Here is the summary printed in the magazine:
As the first person to introduce modern European culture and society to Japan, Yukichi Fukuzawa is one of the most important and influential figures in establishing modern Japanese society after the Meiji Restoration of 1857. Born into a lower-class samurai family in Nakatsu, Oita, he started studying Dutch when he was 14, but the cultural climate of the. Prompted him to study English. Fukuzawa volunteered his services when the Tokugawa Shogunate government sent envoys to San Francisco and learned English very quickly. Afterwards, he visited Europe as a government translator. Based on his full experience of life outside Japan, he wrote Seiyo Jijo ("Condition in the West") and introduced new ideas to people who were feeling uncertain after the philosophical change of the Meiji Restoration. Fukuzawa was also interested in education and wrote Gakumon No Susume ("An Encouragement of Learning") and founded Keio Gijuku, now known as Keio University. His portrait has been on the 10,000-yen banknote since 1984.
