Born and raised in Japan, Akashi moved to Guam in 2007. The tropical weather and warm beaches make the island difficult for him to live anywhere else. His enjoyment for water activities range from kayaking to scuba diving. Living in a fixer-upper-home, Akashi has not been anywhere near the water within the past few months. His hobbies are currently various home repairs – from replacement of light fixtures to the application of roof coating.
