I first encountered rowing at university, when I was 18 years old, and I began competing. I have been a representative player of Japan since 2016. Although I advanced to the finals of the qualifying round for the Rio 2016 Olympics, I missed out on selection. In 2017 I switched from the lightweight to the heavyweight category and am continuing to take on the world.

PURPOSE

Goals for this season

Acquire world-class speed and win at the Asian Championships.
