"I decided to move to Avispa Fukuoka. It has been a treasure of my life that I met a lot of wonderful teammates and staff for the past 10 years and I was able to play in the hot cheers of Tokyo fans & supporters. This decision was very troublesome for me myself, it was not easy. Although I feel very lonely now, I would like to enjoy playing in Avispa Fukuoka, believing in the way I decided my future.
I will do my best to play in front of you, so please continue your support. I will continue to support Tokyo forever. Thank you very much for 10 years."
