Dr. Suekawa was born on January 16, 1961 in Kyoto, Japan.His grandfather is Dr. Hiroshi Suekawa, former professor of Kyoto University and president emeritus of Ritsumeikan University, and his father is Dr. Kiyoshi Suekawa, professor emeritus of Ritsumeikan University.After graduating from Kyoto Prefectural Kamoyi High School and the Faculty of Science at Kyoto University, he worked for Bandai Co.He has produced many animations such as "Nintama Rantaro" broadcasted by NHK and "The Twelve Kingdoms".

Kyoto Institute of Information has welcomed Prof. Suekawa as a visiting professor since 2009, and he has been in charge of the lecture "Research on Creative Industries".The lecture on the current state of the animation industry, which is one of Japan's representative industries, the production process of animation, marketing, and international strategy from a business perspective was interesting and meaningful for students studying web business technology.In addition, Kyoto Computer Gakuin, one of our group schools, gave a lecture on the animation industry and business perspective as a cultural lecture.

Prof. Suekawa answered each of our questions carefully in the online discussion using our learning support system, and his serious and warm personality made him especially popular among the students.I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to him and pray for his peaceful and eternal rest.
