In his professional career in the Foreign Ministry of Japan, particularly during his tenure as Deputy Director-General in the Policy and North American Bureau, he dealt with key security issues concerning Japan, including the Korean peninsula leading into the six-party talks and the banning of anti-personnel landmines. Earlier in his career, he was in charge of non-governmental organizations and public relations at the time of the Second Special Session of the General Assembly on Disarmament. When he was Director-General of the Research Bureau of the House of Councillors, he was instrumental in the passage of landmark legislation in Japan concerning the Emergency Situation of Attack against Japan and other important security laws and regulations.
During his assignment in Pakistan, he has endeavoured to strengthen bilateral cooperation particularly in regard to export control and non-proliferation of sensitive technology and goods.
