When I went to see the cultural festival of Waseda University senior high school in 2007, I saw flowerstick performance for the first time. The performance looked so cool and I was very excited. The next year, I entered the high school. I belonged to the juggling club and touched flowersticks for the first time.

The trick named "Southern Cross" originated from Naoto Miyata ?? Do propeller along the crossed hand stick. I spent about 4 months for only this trick.

I have a few original tricks but all tricks look bad. I often invent sequences rather than tricks.

Dual reverse fishtail 2 up pirouette. I could do only once.

How and where do you practice?
I practice in the park near the university and in the place near my home. I usually practice alone because there are only a few flowerstick jugglers around me.

Do you perform with devilsticks?
Yes. I perform in the festival of the university, stage in the auditorium, and so on.

Why do you like devilsticks?
Because of the flexibility from only 3 or 4 sticks (1 or 2 sticks + handsticks).

What are your strong/weak points?
I don't juggle "reverse rotation" well. For example, curls, propeller, and so on. In addition, I can't continue fishtail so long.

How is juggling life in Japan? Are devilsticks popular?
In Japan, devilsticks (especially flowersticks) are minority. So I wish I wanted more flowerstick players. But there are many very-very-good devilsticks/flowersticks jugglers in Japan.

Tell a funny story related with devilsticks.
My flowerstick was broken during the performance. ›http://youtu.be/Cb-CMNONuHY?t=1m40s

What is your goal related with devilsticks? What is a challenge for you?
I don't think about my goal. Because I want to grow flowerstick skills as well as possible. I'm afraid of stopping the growth of the skills when setting goal.

What do you advice to beginner/advanced devilstick players?
Please teach me new tricks, sequences and ideas.
