Yoichi Oishi

Japan

Age: 82

I'm living in Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo, Japan. I worked in both local and multi-national advertising agencies for 40 years. After retiring ad agency, I studied Chinese language (now almost forgotten) in a Beijing university one and a half year. Then coming back to Japan, I worked as a freelance marketing consultant. I'm now totally retired. 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.
