Born in Gunma prefecture, Japan, on December 1985.
I grew up surrounded by mountains in eastern Japan. My mountaineering carrier started when I was a child. My first teacher is my parents, they often took me to mountain in all seasons.

In 2004, I moved to Niigata prefecture to study physics at Niigata university, at the same time, I started bouldering in local climbing gym.
Finally, I holds a master’s degree in physics, and I had devoted myself to ground up style bouldering for 10 years.

After that, in 2014, I moved to Saitama prefecture to work on Lost Arrow Inc. There is many respectable senior climbers, therefore I expanded my field.
So I do not only bouldering, I do various climbing for seeking to meld various styles.

Now, I left the office. The work in LostArrow which was very comfortable condition for climber because the company accepted to take a long vacation for climbing trip. And I could have a time for talking about our activities with co-worker and business partners.
However, when I considered about myself to be honestly what I want to do it as a climber.
The simple answer came up my mind, I just want to commit my life for climbing more, and want to do action to convey importance of healthy environmental sustainability and fascination of climbing.
So I decided to be professional rock climber.
