I am a simultaneous interpreter and have worked with several celebrities and VIPS around the world.
Originally from Tokyo, but have lived in Kanazawa for over 25 years and love this city! Received my education abroad (India, Singapore, California, Paris) since the age of 8 to 22 and have a non-Japanese like outgoing character--but a good listener at the same time! I shall be very honoured to getting to know you and taking you around to the best of my ability.
