Leo Masaharu Kuraoka


Well hello there! My name is Leo Masaharu Kuraoka, and this is my main entry page. That photo of me was taken when I was about 15 minutes old. Like me, my webspace will grow and grow.

My middle name, Masaharu, was my grandfather’s name. According to my great-aunty Merry, the Japanese character for masa means “righteous, honest, upright, lawful, exact, legal;” haru means “to bring order, peace, settle, end, conclude.”
