(currently Yamaha Sound System in Tokyo as a room acoustics and sound system design. He developed a computer simulation software to increase accuracy and productivity of sound system design in large spaces. This software was purchased by Mark IV Audio later and had become AcoustaCADD, most popular simulation software for sound system design in 1990s. One of most remarkable sound system design was Tokyo Dome, first air inflated indoor stadium having 50,000 seats in Japan established in 1989.

He joined Bose Corporation as a senior research engineer in 1993 Nov. and worked on various research projects for pro. One of the achievements is development of simulation algorithm which predicts three-dimensional radiation characteristics of horn (waveguide) speakers based on dimensions of the waveguide. This technology was applied to a product development when Bose Corporation worked on sound system for Mosque in Mecca. He was also involved in system design for figure skate arena for Nagano Winter Olympic. At Nagano.

He took a role in initiating Bose professional division in Japan by relocating back to Tokyo in Oct. 1998.
