In 1984 he was nominated as the first president of the Herschel Society of Japan, and the following year he realized a Herschel concert in Tokyo and led a study tour to Europe. Since then he has done much to promote knowledge of the Herschels {see planet  (2000)} and their contemporaries. (M 26766)
