Three and half year has come to an abrupt end. I feel an enormous pain to part with my staff, players, and supporters who I considered family. I poured my heart and soul, blood and sweat into the Shimizu S-Pulse. The results did not always illustrate the progress we made, but the journey inspired a new generation. I have no regrets; only wonderful memories etched in my thoughts and heart forever. I would like to express my deepest appreciation for your love, devotion, and support. Thank you for your everlasting cheers. I will remember you forever. Good-Bye Shizuoka.
