Self Introduction

I’m from San Francisco, California which is located on the West Coast of the United States. I’ve been asked what are some things different about living in Tokyo and San Francisco. For me one big difference is the weather. In San Francisco the weather is mild all year round. It’s never too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter like Tokyo.

My hobbies are reading books and watching baseball. I am a San Francisco Giants baseball fan but also enjoy Japanese professional baseball. I like music especially the Beatles, Eagles and Elton John. My wife plays the piano and I play the guitar. We have played in several live houses in Tokyo but unfortunately my singing isn’t very good!
