Until he retired in 2016, Kentaro Yoshioka was a professional snowboarder and Japan's national champion. Now, he manages a small-scale daycare center in Sapporo, Hokkaido, that looks after children between 0 and 3 years old. Since making this dramatic career change, Yoshioka has been aiming for the top in childcare as well.
