Is an anchor of the investigative news program “Hodo Tokushu” (Weekly News Special) of TBS. He has been working for TBS for more than 43 years. As a TV journalist, he has covered many
stories, including the collapse of the Soviet Union while he was Moscow Bureau chief (1991-1994), the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars as the Washington D.C. Bureau chief (2002-2005), the end of the Cold War (1989-1991), North Korea issues (1999-present) and so on. He loves being a TV journalist. He says the longer he does this work, the more convinced he becomes that it is a vital public service because, despite the changing media landscape, the journalist’s role is to provide factual eyewitness accounts. He thinks that’s especially true amid today’s armchair blogosphere-cum-journalism.
He was born in 1953, at Asahikawa City, Hokkaido.
