☆ innovative 革新的な
Something that is innovative is new and original. An innovative person is someone who introduces changes and new ideas. Who would you consider to be the most innovative person in history? My immediate thought is Steve Jobs… but obviously there were many, many more innovative people before Steve Jobs.
Some of the other innovative people I thought of were Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Leonardo Da Vinci, and The Wright Brothers. These are all innovative people from the past, but all of them are from western culture. How about in Japan? Who would you pick as the most innovative people in Japan right now and in Japan’s long history? What innovative breakthroughs did they come up with?
