I was born in 1962 in Japan and started to breed Discus as a hobby in 1990.
In 1995 I opened the Discus shop. Going to Hong Kong and Penang many times, I imported and sold Discus.
I met Mr. Manfred Göbel in1997 at AQUARAM, Singapore. From the same year I started to import Göbel's Discus.
In 1998 I won the first prize at Internationales Diskus Championat' 98 in Germany.
In 2002 and 2004 I invited Mr. Manfred Göbel to Japan as a lecturer and organize the Discus lecture In 2005 contest of Italy I acted as a judge.
In 2007 and 2008 I organized the Discus Contest in Japan and acted as an examination chairman. Mr. Manfred Göbel retired as a Discus breeder and at the same time, I started to breed and maintain his Discus. Many books I wrote are published.
Now I am an owner of Discus shop and a breeder. I look up to Mr. Manfred Göbel as my preceptor and have a deep acquaintanceship with him.
I love old historic Discus. This time I appreciate inviting me as a judge.
I'm glad to make use of Italian and world Discus fans.
