Yoichi Oishi

Japan

Age: 81

I'm living in Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo, Japan. I worked in both local and international advertising agencies for 40 years. After retiring ad agency, I studied Chinese (now almost forgotten) in a Beijing university one and a half year. Then coming back to Japan, I worked as a marketing consultant. I'm now entirely free from business. I still keep learning English and reading English news papers everyday to be abreast with trends du jour. I like travel and photographing. I'm living with my wife as an empty-nester.
