I was born in Tokyo, raised in Chiba Pref.  While ALPINE is celebrating its 50th anniversary, I have been working at this company for over 40 years. As my second life, I had a long-held yearning to introduce the hidden charms of Japan to foreign trekkers abroad. Japan is chock full of outdoor attractions, including the well-preserved historical Nakasendo Way in Nagano Pref., Hakone with a stunning view and abundance of hot springs, and tranquil Goto Islands.

My home town is Kamakura, a famous ancient city with many temples and Big Buddha. Kamakura is in Kanagawa Pref., south of Tokyo. When I was a student, I played windsurfing almost every weekend. I’ve participated in the World Champions held in Thailand by the French company name of Mistral. That was my first trip abroad.

We are preparing to welcome all our friends from Europe through our partner companies to Japan.

Memories you'll treasure for the rest of your life.
