Born in 1966. Living in Tokyo. I began to photograph at the age of 13 years old.

I start caving in 1982 and began to take cave photos in 1988. Mainly I take photos in Japan. Sometimes I take photos in cave expeditions or excursions of foreign countries.

Around the same time, for the cave rescue and exploration technology, I focus on activities that provide technical introduction to Japan from abroad.

I result of those activities, from 1998 to the present is a councilor of the Speleological Society of Japan (National speleological organizations; join the UIS), until 2008-2011 I was in the position of chairman.

Currently, I also am Japan delegate of UIS, Vice President of the Asian Federation of Speleology.

 And now, I have spent half of cave activities to cave photo. I have the remaining half, an activity related to the cave education, Speleological Society of Japan and Asian Federation of Speleology.
