I'm interested in enhancement / improvement of human's athletic performance for years, because I raised up watching the Nagano Olympic Games - the Sydney Olympic Games - the FIFA World Cup games in 2002, and moments that Japanese athletes did extremely well in abroad - soon I was deeply interested in the differences between top athletes' performances and the others'.
I got a master's degree in physical education and also worked out seriously hard to become a great athlete - I played basketball for 22 years. I have been trying lots of training methods such as Jump Attack by Tim S. Grover, usual resistance training (bench press 1RM 107.5kg / 63kg body weight), pilates method, redcord, ballet, optimal performance training and corrective exercise by the national academy of sports medicine, functional movement, functional strength training, martial arts in ancient times, and Hida-way method.
Recently, not only physical training but diet and mentality / spirituality; fasting, less meal, inner game, Japanese thought, sense, luck, intuition, buddhist intuition, mysticism, meditation, and effortlessism.
Aesthetic Sense and Into Fashion
My grandmother said that I was particular about clothings since I was a kid.
Alexander Wang, Arts & Science, Balenciaga, Blue Blue, By Walid, Casey Casey, Common Projects, Dior, Dries Van Notten, Emporio Armani, Ganryu, Graphpaper, Hollywood Ranch Market, Hugo Boss, Lanvin, Margaret Howell, Martin Margiela, Muji, Patagonia, Paul Harnden, Rick Owens, Rogan, Youji Yamamoto - I have been liking.
Currently I design T-shirts on my own.
Recent favorites are kimonos and old cloths - feel the value of time.
My interest is based on the eastern sense of beauty - tea, praise of shadows, sense of transience, indigo, asian coloring - compromise between Japanese and Western styles is supreme.
