Things to Keep in Mind as a Justice
I will look at the facts with a sense of humility and try to be fair when making judgments.

Favorite Word or Term
Among my many favorite words, I have recently been more attracted to “sympathy,” “generosity,” “calm,” and “perseverance.”

Books that Left an Impression on Me
In my life, I have read a variety of genres of books and learned many things from them. In recent years, I have been reading widely on history since the Meiji period, and in particular, I have frequently chosen diary literature, such as Hara Takashi’s diary. When I feel tired, I read Seiko Tanabe’s works, which refresh me.

Hobbies
