About Me


To know various culture and people


I am working at Design and Marketing agency in Singapore.

I worked as PR communication planner at PR agency in Osaka JP for two years and then I worked as Digital communication planner at Digital Agency in Tokyo JP.

I experienced PR & Marketing Communication work because I'm interested in communication very much.
And also interested in Asian market and global communication.

I lived in Osaka and Kobe(Hyogo-pref).
I went to Doshisha University in Kyoto.

I love meeting new friends
I love knowing different culture.
I love talking about travel.

Germany 2009 (Frankfurt,Munich,Rothenburg)
Spain 2010 (Barcelona,Mallorca)

Singapore 2011 (Singapore)
Of course, Lots of nice places in Japan !!;)

I was a member of Japan Norway Student Forum when I was University student.I hold many cultural exchange events for introducing Japanese culture to Norwegian student both in Norway and Japan.

If you come to Singapore,you can send me message!

Though I don't know so much about Singapore, but I'll be able to talk about lots of topics about Japan and Japanese culture.
And if you want to know about Kansai area (Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto...),you can ask me about it.

I'm looking forward to meeting new CS friends!!

Met many interesting people

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Japanese and Japanese culture,if you want to.
I can speak normal Japanese spoken in Tokyo,also I can speak with Osaka dialect,Kyoto dialect and Kobe dialect.
They are called Kansai dialect.

I also want to know your language!
I'm really interested in foreign culture and language.

My purpose for studying other languages is that I want to communicate with various people and talk about various topics not at surface-level but at fundamental-level.
