About Me:

I'm a pro inline skater  from Okayama, Japan. I have been skating for over a decade and I hope to share my love for inline skating with all the people around the world. I fly often across the world for competitions and I try my best to be the best skater I can be. I like to push my limits when it comes to skating and will always find more interesting ways to execute a trick over a mundane obstacle. 

I love inline because I can use my creativity in skating and hope that this creativity will be viral among the new skaters of today.  Being part of the X-mini inline team has given me more opportunity to showcase this creativity and  I thank them for this.

I have a pro inline skate model So1RoK from Valo Skates. I am the first Asian to have his own pro model and this 

Why do I love X-mini:

I love X-mini products because of the outlook and portability, and the sound is really great. I always have it with me when I skate as the music that I play with it accompanies my skating well - that's why I love it!
