About Me


Live simple!


I'm a Japanese freelance photographer and office worker, living in Tokyo with my husband.

On weekdays I am working for a small company which is importing picture books from foreign countries. So I'm interested in foreign books very much. Only on weekends I work as a freelance photographer. These two jobs are very important for me.

From Feb 2013 to Feb 2014 I lived in Berlin. Because I wanted to find something special (and creative) in a foreign country. It was a wonderful & amazing experience and I cannot forget everything in Germany.

if you are coming to Tokyo, I will show you around, we can have some coffee or Beer and talk together :) I'm a friendly person who likes to explore new things and see new places. So please contact me!


Life is simple.
