I grew up in Tendo City, Yamagata Prefecture, and studied abroad in Seattle, USA after graduating from high school. I learned English while experiencing the Seattle music scene in the mid-'90s. I discovered black and white photography at Evergreen College in Washington State, and have continued my artistic activities since returning to Japan. This is my 18th year living in Kyoto. I also had a base in Beijing, China, and traveled back and forth for several years. I have about 4.5 years of experience as a manager in a cafe bar attached to a guesthouse with many foreign guests in Kyoto, and about 2 years of experience as a local attendant and long-time guide around the local Yamagata area. I can guide you through a wide range of activities from photography art, local music, Japanese culture, food, and drink.
