I'm a Japan-based translator/writer specializing in English to Japanese and Japanese to English translation and localization.
After earning an English Literature degree from Kyoto Women's University, I became a Japanese tour leader.
As a tour leader, I visited more than 20 countries. I led large tours of up to 50 Japanese tourists and translated and interpreted for them. This job gave me my first chance to translate English-Japanese, and I was hooked.
