| I write about myself a little more.
I was born in Japan, Gunma prefecture in 1955.
I studied English literature in Aoyama Gakuin University.
In early age, I was a swimmer and competed in swimming races, and became the Prefectural swimming champion in 200m Individual Medley.
I started Freestyle skiing when I was attending university.
From the late 1970s to mid 1980s, I won most of the titles of Freestyle competitions in Japan, and some international competitions.
I earned the Japanese National Combined Championships 7 times and 35 individual national titles. Also I achieved many times top ten standings in World Cups and World Championships.
I retired from Freestyle competition in 1986 and became Japanese National Team coach.
Then I started my own ski school in 1994 in Hakuba area in Nagano prefecture.
Freestyle skiing has not been the only my speciality, I also competed in Alpine races and basic skiing competitions.
In the year 2000, I decided to come out of retirement and re-enter the world of competition. A year later I attained second place at the 2001 National Freestyle Ski Championship. During this period I also re-started many Big Air shows, Acro ski shows, and Mogul demonstrations.
In 2005, when I turned 50, I began competing in Masters' swimming races.
I won my first title of National Championship of 50m Freestyle in 2007. I then won the many titles of 50m Butterfly. I am dedicated to performing my best at skiing and swimming for the rest of his life.
Although sport has dominated most of my life, I also have a love for writing and a love for classical music, and began to publish articles and books in the late 1990s.
Ushio Literary Prize was given to me in 1998 for a nonfiction story,“The falling stars of the Nagano Olympics”. In addition to stories and novels, I also have written many ski books, swimming books, and classical music essays.
