I am from Tokyo.
I have lived in Australia for 22 years, married for 15, been a celebrant for 12 years.
I used to design and sell clothes, then had a vintage Scandinavian homeware shop online. Both didn’t sell too much haha.
Before that, I was a Uni student studying interpreting and translation.
Before that, I was a backpacker for a little while.
I missed the boat to Santorini and spent the night at the port, did a henna tattoo on the street in London and almost got arrested, jumped off a train in Rajasthan and broke my front teeth (and got them fixed), lost all my money, got my passport stolen, went the wrong way, made my way back to Japan then arrived in Australia.
I also work as an interpreter and translator (NAATI accredited)
I love fashion and art.
I love Indian food as much as Japanese food.
I drink sake but if you offer me a glass of champagne after the ceremony I would be delighted too.
Flat white regular milk no sugar at a cafe, but green tea all day at home.
I do love Hello Kitty as well if you are wondering.
We were actually born in the same year!
