When we enter the ocean, we realize the connection between nature and humans along with the natural rhythm of the universe. The ocean is not only beautiful and fun, but also frightening and terrifying. I would like to share my love of the ocean with as many people as possible as I continue my own exploration of living in harmony with nature and accepting change.

Q: What is your most memorable experience in nature?
Being face to face underwater with a singing whale in front of me on Amami Oshima Island.
Q: What does nature represent to you?
The moment you enter the ocean and realize that you are also a part of nature.
Q: What has nature taught you?
The ocean teaches us many things, as it is not only beautiful and fun, but also frightening and terrifying. It teaches us that there is only so much we can control, that things are constantly changing, and that we must accept this and live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
Q: What do you hope that people will get out of experiences with you as a guide?
I would be happy if the experience of diving could be an opportunity for people to become aware of the ocean inside of themselves.
