A source linked with the kidnappers told local reporters that the armed group released Akahane and Dutch nurse Wilhem Sools because it had received a large amount of ransom money, but did not say how much or who paid it.
In Tokyo, Gael Austin, president of Doctors of the World Japan, said he is very happy at the news that Akahane and Sools have been freed.

Narrative futuring, for example, a guided process of writing from the future to the present (i.e., letters from the future) can be viewed as the future-oriented counterpart of life review (Sools et al., "Mapping Letters from the Future").
Narrative futuring, however, presents an alternative in which the future can become, at least partially, an experience (Sools et al., "Mapping Letters from the Future", Tromp, and Mooren).
Psychiatrist Frederic Melges was among the first to make a distinction between expectation (when the past self finds its way into the future without any innovation) and anticipation (the process where imagining of a future self is less determined by, and potentially different from, past experiences) (see also Sools and Mooren).
The acceleration of the pace of change that accompanies late modernity (Lombardo) affects the lives and identities of individuals in late modern society (Beck; Giddens) and drives the need to continuously anticipate and bring about change (Sools and Mooren).
However, both the immediate evaluative and interpretive context of the self and the larger cultural frameworks from which this context emerges, tend not to be taken into account in possible selves research (Sools et al., "De zin van vervreemdende toekomstverbeelding" ["the meaning of alienating future imagination"]).
In the first part (after receiving instruction and providing informed consent), participants wrote a Letter from the Future (see Sools and Mooren for details about this instrument), an exercise involving writing a personal narrative.
