In 2006 he moved to the UK and performed with various theatre companies such as Station House Opera​. He has also made appearances in films, TV, and commercials

On the other hand, he has kept his passion for the theatrical scene and participated in a series of Greek Tragedy such as Phoenician Women, Oedipus the king , Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone in Theatro Technis production as several characters including the blind prophet, Teiresias.



As much as time allows he writes, directs and performs his solo performances, which have been held in veneus such as Etcetera Theatre and Battersea Art Centre.
His solo performances were developed by the help and the inspiration of one of the most famous Japanese actor in the UK, late Eiji Kusuhara楠原映二).
