At the beginning of winter 1989 I met a vice-minister from the Science and Technology Agency who told me that he wanted to set up a deep-sea microbiology research group in the Japan Marine Science and Technology Center (JAMSTEC), and asked for my help (Fig. 8.1). As I was interested in deep-sea extremophiles, I told him that I would be happy to help after 1990, because the ERATO project was planned to end in August. He knew that I had set up the new biology department at the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
