Hello, my name is Akane. I'm originally from Osaka, and I've also lived abroad for 22 years. I live in a Machiya (traditional Kyoto-style house) in a quiet part of Kyoto. My family owns a Seaweed wholesale company in Osaka, so they are very adventurous when it comes to food. When I was growing up they fed me all sorts of things, so now I'm a true food-passionate. I also love art, museums, visiting historical places such as temples and shrines, cooking, dining out, going to flea-markets, movies, reading and spending some down time with my family.
