Starting as a part-time employee
I started working at Capcom as a part-time employee due to my strong interest in the family business. I then joined as a full-time employee after graduating from university in April of 1987. I support my father, the then president and current chairman, with an unwavering determination to succeed in the gaming industry.
I'll seek out anyone stronger than me.

Console Games Business Direct Sales
Revolutionizing the Sales Structure
With the release of Resident Evil 2, the company gains an awareness of inventory management in the marketing industry, and transitioned to a direct sales system for its home console games. This company milestone contributed to the foundation of the current digital sales strategy.
Suggestion: Take that!
Single Content Multiple Usage Strategy
Upon my appointment to the position of company president, I promoted the Single Content Multiple Usage growth strategy. I also pursued global and digital business strategies in order to help guide the company toward an even brighter future.
It's only natural that a Sumo wrestler should become the World's Strongest!
