Message

While I mainly grew up in a rural area in Japan, I had opportunities to travel, live, and work in other countries. I lived in the United States during my primary school days, studied in the Netherlands, worked in Malaysia, and was dispatched in Sudan. These overseas experiences and interactions with the people there made me aware of diversity of the people living in different parts of the world. At the same time, I saw in many countries the people in need of support. That is my motivation to provide legal assistance to the international residents in Japan.

I experienced living in the UK, and visited many countries. I know how unstable it was for people to live in an unfamiliar country. It relates to Japan in the way that you might have worries about not being fluent in Japanese, Japanese customs are very different, and the laws are unknown whilst having legal problems. I have handled many cases with international clients and I know how to address the concerns of my clients based on my own experience of living in a foreign county. I’m very happy to help ease anxiety and find the best solution to legal problems in English while providing an easy-to-talk atmosphere.

When I lived in the US as a migrant, I worked at a supporting organization and realized the importance of legal support for International residents.

At the same time, I was one of the International residents there and experienced the anxiety and difficulties of living in an unfamiliar country. However, thanks to many people who supported me, the memories in the US remains brilliant in my heart.

These experiences in the US motivated me to become an attorney in Japan and to provide legal support for International residents.

It will be my a pleasure to support you in your legal journey.
