He succeeded in making the first photographic observation in Japan of an occultation by a minor planet, that of γ Geminorum by (381) Myrrha on 1991 Jan. 13. He promotes observations of occultations by minor planets in Japan generally and made the first use of a color video to obtain flash spectra at the northern and southern limits of total solar eclipses.
