I was born in Fukushima prefecture, Japan. After working for several renowned magazines as a contributing writer / editor in Tokyo, I moved to the UK in 2008. There I received a M.A. in cultural entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
After four years in the U.K., I moved back to Japan and started working as a private travel guide, as well as contributing to magazines mainly writing about restaurants, shopping, and the culture and history of Tokyo. I obtained a national license as an interpreter tour guide.
I love visiting shrines and temples, ramen noodles, and onsens (hot springs)!
