I currently reside in Yokohama. I was born in Nagano City and grew up in Tokyo. When I was in high school, I studied abroad for a year at an American high school as an exchange student. After graduating from college, I worked in foreign trade and overseas market development, during which time I was stationed abroad for 10 years. Since 2017, I have been working as an interpreter guide, mainly guiding groups of about 15 international visitors using public transportation.
