TOP > PORTRAITS > Kunio Sonoda, Translator & Minister

Mr. Sonoda left Japan when he was 22 years old for studying theology in the US. After that, he moved to the UK. Then he already two children at the time. During his Ph. D study in The University of Edinburgh, he began to work as a translator. As his intelligence and experience, he could get many offers for historical important conferences. For example, the trade conflict in 1960-80s was one of the big issues. He used to work for the president of Toyota, Nissan, Sony, etc and UK & Japan government. I saw his picture with Margaret Thatcher. A minister is also his professional job. He does not only translate between different culture and language, but also God and human.
