First of all, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of you for participating in this meeting. Now, almost twenty years have passed since I first organized an international symposium on muscle contraction in Tokyo in 1978. This time, I would like to take the organizer’s privilege to reflect on what motivated me to organize the 1978 meeting arond the status of muscle research at that time.
