Things to Keep in Mind as a Justice
As many cases in the Supreme Court involve complicated legal problems and/or issues on which different people make different subjective judgments, it is difficult for the Court to deal with the cases. I will strive to play an active role when the Supreme Court seeks a proper and appropriate interpretation and application of the law in each case as the highest court that primarily judges questions of law.

Books that Left an Impression on Me
I read many books across all genres. Among those I have read in recent years, the most interesting book that stands out in my memory is “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” written by Yuval Noah Harari, which became a world bestseller.

Hobbies
I cook various dishes, Japanese, western, Chinese and ethnic, in daily life and also like reading books on cooking.
