What have been the main lessons you have learned in your career and how do you implement them in your management?

Product development involved flashes of insight and imagination during the development of techniques, along with a willingness to experiment and persevere through trial and error.

Profesional accomplishments

The development of a semiconductor analysis device using laser photoluminescence spectroscopy enabled quantitative measurement of impurities within silicon, earning recognition as the industry standard. This contribution significantly stabilized semiconductor manufacturing in Japan.


Mr. Ikuzo Michihata, the former head of the technical department at Seishin, demonstrated to me the attitude of facing the development equipment head-on.

Goals as president

I want to preserve the quality of Japanese craftsmanship by demonstrating the world standard.


The words of the former head of the technical department were: "Be humble in the face of phenomena!"

It means discerning things carefully, identifying their essence, and responding accordingly. Rather than creating stories, it's about approaching problems with a blank slate mindset, analyzing events. Such humble responses often lead to true solutions.
