Tetsu literally means iron, so you can call me Ironman My life’s calling is to be a missionary of Japanese history and culture. My passion is teaching about Japanese culture. And my aim is to make people aware of our intellectual and artistic contributions to the world. In other words, I would like to be a grassroots diplomat.
