Profile

Kota Kodama, PhD

Birthday July 8, 1974

I have lived in various places all over the country from the south (Fukuoka) to the north (Sapporo), but I have recently found out that I can not live in the city more than this (Osaka).
It is an eclectic Hiroshima Carp fan, but I am a keeper who is afraid that the long-term Ice Age will come again after the recent golden era.
