I have been stationed at the office of Chemistry section of Research Division of Yokohama Plant Protection Station in 1966. Since then, I have been engaged in the research on fumigation treatment. From 1992 to 2013, I have participated to the Meeting of the Parties on the Montreal Protocol on the substances that deplete ozone layer as a member of the Japan government delegation. MAFF also agreed with me to be nominated as the member of Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee (MBTOC) in 1993. I have participated the activity as a member of MBTOC since then.
