His [[diocese]] suffered greatly from the great earthquake of [[March 11]], 2011, particularly from the resulting great tsunami that followed. The Church of the Annunciation in Yamada-cho, that was destroyed after the tsunami and fire, was among the most seriously damaged church property. Fortunately the death toll among the Orthodox Christians was limited with a report of eight deaths.[]
On [[July 8]], 2012, by the decision of Council of the Japanese Orthodox Church, he was elevated to the dignity of [[archbishop]].
