I found this piece of information from his profile interesting:

Qualifications (Education-related)

Junior High School Teacher License Class I (Music)
Senior High School Teacher License Class I (Music)
Kindergarten Teacher License Class II 2
So he was (is?) a certified teacher, though there's no indication of how he used that certification if at all. If I were to guess, he may have done music teaching on the side during his short Nintendo stint and the early startup years of his company. Could have been at a school, could have been private lessons, could have been both.

It's especially interesting to note that the Kinder license he listed is not necessarily specific to music (even though that's probably how he would've used it).

I enjoy discovering fellow legitimately certified teachers who also compose game music.
