Hi, and thank you for stopping by!
If you know me personally, you’re probably imagining me talking through the screen right now, tackling three, four topics a minute. If you don’t — well, that’s me and maybe a bit more, so pleased to have you here!
I’m a Japanese-English bilingual TV host, event emcee, radio personality, writer, pronunciation coach, and public speaking instructor.
Since pre-school, I’ve been raised in an international academic environment, naturally intriguing me to travel the world and eventually making me land in the U.S. as a college student. I’m now based in Tokyo, Japan, taking my career to new heights.
In 2021, I was the English voice behind the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games’ opening and closing ceremonies.
I’ve also been the voice (read ‘main navigator’) for J-wave, one of the leading radio stations in Japan, for six years, interviewing unique people and celebrities from all over the world. Great times! My voice has also been featured in TV programs, radio shows, and commercials. I was also the anchor for NHK World’s “Newsline” weather section for five years.
In 2018, I used my expertise and love for writing to publish my first book, “22 English Pronunciation and Public Speaking Techniques,” which opened a new career path I’ve been investing a lot of my time lately: English pronunciation coach for corporate executives.
I also write in English for various publications, focusing on bringing the latest and best in Japan to foreign readers.
And when I’m not talking, I'm usually singing (have released an EP album in 2004), or finding ways to share the beauty of my native Japanese culture with the world.
