I developed sight problems at the age of 3 years. While my eyesight was weak when I was at school, it declined in 2002. I began competing in 2006, and have been competing as a representative of Japan since the 2009 Asian Championships.
Goals for this season
The major championship is now over, and it is time for a new start.
Although I am aware of passing down my experience to the next generation, I intend to get better and practice hard so I can be a great “wall” against the up and coming next generation of players.
