Nickname:Taku, Taku-chan

i enjoy

I’m glad I’ve been in this sport, because I was able to become friendly with players that are my age, and players of different generations. I’m happy that so many people cheer us on.

Strong points

My strengths are my ball handling and three-pointers. What I’d want people to watch for is my dribbling. I handle the ball accurately even at top speeds, work to attack the goal, and make assists as well—it’d be great if you could come watch in person.
