Things to Keep in Mind as a Justice
I am committed to fulfilling my mission impartially and faithfully, to find an appropriate and reasonable solution by law for each specific case that is brought to the court.

Favorite Word or Term
I always say to myself, "Don't get heated, don't get excited; be calm when approaching a task." This phrase reminds me of the importance of making a calm judgment based on an accurate understanding of the matter at hand.

Books that Left an Impression on Me
I read various genres of books, but I am particularly attracted to stories about the lives of individuals involved in significant events in history. Joseph Fouché, the biography by Stefan Zweig, is one such story. I recently re-read Fuyu no Habatsu (Faction of Winter) by Saburo Shiroyama, and was impressed once again. On Happiness by Alain, a French philosopher, teaches me many new things every time I read it.

Hobbies
On my days off, I enjoy strolling around, feeling the seasonal changes. When I happen to find a historic place, I look up the story associated with it. In recent years, I often go to concerts of classical music and various other genres of music. Beautiful music cheers me up and makes me feel serene.
