It has been very fortunate for me that I have gone to many countries and many cities through my music making, and I have met so many wonderful people. That is my treasure! From France to India, from Alaska to Argentina, from New York to Tokyo — my musical journey has taken me to so many places in the world. It is my pleasure to communicate with you through this website!
At my home, Los Angeles, California, I enjoy teaching students at Occidental College and at home, and collaborating with my friends in concerts. I love to create interesting programming in my concerts. For instance, 2011 celebrates Franz Liszt’s bicentennial year, and I have been performing a program titled “Celebrating Liszt: Hungarian Connection” featuring Liszt and other Hungarian composers. My ongoing mission has been to introduce beautiful Japanese music to the world, and on the last year’s tour I performed “Encuentro de Oriente y Occidente” (East meets West) in Latin American countries.
This webpage has 2 languages, and in my blogs I write mostly reviews on concerts, movies, and music in the English page and I write about more personal thoughts and everyday activities in the Japanese page.
