He has emerged from an early age and is currently active mainly in competitions as a top rider representing Japan.In this season's World Cup Big Air, which will be the Olympic season, following last month's Beijing tournament, he finished second in this month's Menchengradbach tournament, and has just entered the podium for the third time in total, including the 2 World Cup. ..Her challenging tricks, which she has already decided to participate in the Pyeongchang Olympics, are always astonishing.This winter, the world will be fascinated by the strength as a game master that he has cultivated since he was a child, and the difficult riding that he has developed with the skill that he has always pursued and refined with the spirit of "there is no choice but to do it".
