 I am Kazusa Kawai. (Kawai is family name) 

I am a Japanese scorpiologist and I have own laboratory (The Japan Scorpion Laboratory).  I love scorpions since childhood. When I was a child, a scorpion was drawn on the saddle of a bicycle that my parents bought first. After that, I became interested in the scorpion and read a article about scorpions in my pictorial book. At that time I feel they  are very cool. That feeling still does not change.  I want to introduce such cool creature on this website.
