Tell us an interesting fact about yourself

I think I am unique person. Sometimes I am very lazy but sometimes I bake bread all day for my family and friends.

I work hard and I like my job. My friends say I am very aggressive person. 

By the way, there are many football fans in Japan - and not only men. I often talk about City - I think I propagate them little by little!

Your favourite City player

David Silva. His play is always amazing! He is one of the best players in the world! 

Your favourite player for your country

My favourite player for my country is Atsuto Uchida. He plays for Schalke04 in the Bundesliga.

He became injured a few months ago, but he recovered and scored a goal when Japan played Cyprus. He never forgot to be grateful to his supporters.

Who is your country’s star player?

Keisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa. They are good players, but they didn't have enough chances to play at their team. Their creative skills are matchless. 

How far do you think your country will get in the World Cup?

It was a long journey to get in the World Cup. Our team has good players, but there are so many great players in the world. 

How important to your country is the World Cup? 

We are interested in sports. To hold sports festivals in Japan is the road to success and we will host the Olympics in 2020.  

Which country do you think will win the World Cup? 

Before the tournament started, I thought Spain would win!

What was the first World Cup you remember watching? 

The 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan. I could watch many games! 

What is your first memory of watching City?

When Manchester City became Barclays Premier League Champions in 2012. 

At that time, I was so excited! It's was an amazing moment that I became a Manchester City fan.
