Things to Keep in Mind as a Justice

In order to serve the judicial purpose of facilitating proper and appropriate settlement of disputes from a fair and impartial standpoint, I will devote all of my heart and soul to fulfil my role as a Justice of the Supreme Court. In light of the recent rapid changes in society, where rights and interests are becoming increasingly complicated and values are diversifying, it is important for court judges to broaden their perspective to be able to achieve due and adequate trials and decisions. With this view in mind, I will continue working to improve my professional capabilities. To carry out my responsibilities properly, I try to consistently maintain a humble attitude toward each individual case, listening carefully to both parties and thinking deeply according to my conscience.

Personal interests

I have been assigned to work in many regions throughout Japan, which stretches from Hokkaido in the north to Kyushu and Okinawa in the south. I enjoyed living in each location and becoming familiar with the regional history, culture and nature; mixing with the local people; listening to their talks; and practicing their lifestyle and customs. As such, each relocation has provided me with a valuable opportunity to deepen my outlook on life and enrich my personal quality. Going forward, I will cultivate different, new interests, sharpening my sensitivity for a finer taste of life.
