  • Diagnosed with Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy as a third-year in junior high school, in the midst of exploring his love for baseball. Started playing goalball at the recommendation of a more senior student with the same condition, and qualified for the Japan national team for the first time in 2017. His strength is in the stability of his defense across all positions, not just his main (right) position.
