Born 1944, Fukushima, Japan


Born in Fukushima, Japan, and after the university education, I moved to Canada and worked at the Consulate General of Japan in Toronto as a researcher. I then worked in Toronto, Tokyo, and New York, as an investment banker and now live in British Columbia, Canada, as a Canadian citizen. My publications have included short stories, essays, interview articles, and an academic translation. Also, my novel, The Return of a Shadow, was shortlisted in 2019 for the Rubery Book Award in the United Kingdom. The Library of The University of British Columbia has this book in the “Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC)” section.
