The Japan winger can't wait to learn from one of the world's most gifted attacking midfielders.
"It's an amazing feeling to know we're team-mates," he told arsenal.com. "Being from Japan, far from here, you think your only chance of seeing players like Ozil is on the television. Now, as a footballer, I have the chance to work with top-class players and that's a huge thing for me. With Ozil and all the fantastic players we already have, I know I can learn new things every day."
