I am a legal counsel at a Swiss pharmaceutical company in Tokyo. Reading newspapers is one of what I like. (I don't know if it's a hobby, though.) Also, I like anime (Japanese animation) and personal computers, including Perl programming.
I have been to New York six times for these two years (as of October, 2013). They are not for business. I visited Turkey in the summer in 2013, a country that is rising like past Japan and Tokyo.
