About Me

I am a husband and the father of five children, and I live in Akishima City in Tokyo, Japan. I am a fireman, and as the leader of a fire crew we are prepared to deal with day-to-day calamities. I have been training in kendo [fencing with bamboo swords] since I was a child, and I am still doing it today. I also teach kendo to children in the region. I have fun doing sports and tending a family vegetable garden.

Why I am a Mormon

When I am learning things in this experience that is called life, I sense that there are things that are beyond human understanding. Through prayer and by reading the scriptures I can truly feel that the Savior Jesus Christ truly lives and that he guides us.

Personal Stories

What are you doing to help strengthen your family and make it successful?

We make time to spend together as a family, we talk together about the daily events in our lives, and we talk about the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my life as a member of the church, and during my college years I served as a fulltime missionary in many areas in Kyushu, Japan. I am currently serving as a teacher at church, and I teach those who are wanting to learn about the church and members who have just joined the church. In order to spend time as a family, we hold ‘Family Home Evenings.’ During this time we do things such as talking about church-related topics, discussing the events in the daily lives of each member of our family, and playing games together. By doing this I--as a husband and a father--can watch my family develop, and I can feel the peace and joy of my beliefs in my daily life.
