I started filmmaking when I was 15 although Iwas a triathlon athlete.When I turned 16,I visited a variety of movie theaters,art galleries,and screenings at universities and of independent movie in Tokyo.I attended a screening at Waseda University's school Festival when I was a high school student,and this was the start of my joing the study group at Waseda University.Then I was inspired to produce student films and experimental films.
Entering the general university,I started feeling limitation in filmmaking
at the university's study group.Wanting to officially learn production
of experimental movies,I restarted my college life at an art niversity
Largely influenced by the cultural climate of Kyoto to where I had moved,
I also started producing contemporary-art works as well as specific filmmaking
when I was 20.With the theme of contemporary Japanese ontology and time
theory, the Tokyo mounting Keishi has been making large-scale works with
the main sliding screens, with the cooperation of the Interior Culture
Since then I began various activities through participating in art competitions,exhibitions
and screening.Also in those daysI started going to nightclubs.

At the age of 30,I was invited by the world-famos dance Tatsumi Hijikata Memorial Asbestos Studio as an instructor of images and contemporary art.Besides the instructor job,I was also in charge of the stage-performance video recording and archiving project at the Asbestos Studio.
In recent years,I have developed educational materials to foster artists in many fields and am taking an active role in educating younger artists.I once lived in Chugin Cupsule Tower designed by an architect Kisho Kurokawa.What makes me unique is that my ancestor was a samurai who built Renkeiji temple of Kawagoe city(formerly called ''Masashi-no-kuni'')and developed cathedral town and castle town in 1549.
For that reason,my ancestor is enshrined at the rooftop of Kawagoe Hachiman
Shrine and the Kawagoe Maruhiro department store as a protective deity
of Kawagoe city.My ancestor also appears in''Manga Nippon Mukashibanashi''(Japanese
folk stories in animation).
