PROFILE

WELCOME

I was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan.

I studied French in Montreal, Canada and worked at a travel agency as an intern in Toronto, Canada while I was in university.

After graduating from the University of Tsukuba, I started working for Hoshino Resorts Inc. which is one of the most influential hotel management companies in Japan. I was involved in various duties such as front desk, dining service, and concierge.

In 2018, I left Hoshino Resorts Inc. to dedicate myself to open new hotels in Kyoto as a staff working in the planning division of Global Hotel Management Ltd. I was engaged in organizing Japanese cultural activities at hotels such as Ikebana (flower arrangement), tea ceremony, kimono etc.

The next year, I got certified as a Kyoto interpreter guide in English.

As for Ikebana , I started studying it under Teacher SUGISAKI Suizan, the 3rd Iemoto (head of the school) of Kidou-mishoryu from 2017. In 2021, I obtained the title of Ikebana Teacher at the Kido-mishouryu School.

In the same year, I moved to Montpellier, France with my French husband.

I like dogs. I had a Shetland Sheepdog when I lived with my parents. I like making tea and taking a
rest with drinking it since I learned Tea ceremony at the Urasenke Chado School when I lived in Japan.
