I am an art and culture expert with the national qualification for art curator in Japan and have over 10 years of experience in writing and translation. I worked for a global company making audio guides for museums, sightseeing spots and historical sites for six years, and have worked as a freelance writer and translator for five years now. Last year, I translated an artist biography (Van Gogh Atlas at Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Kodansha Publishing) and museum catalogues.


My work experience covers a wide range of areas such as Japanese Traditional Arts and Cultures (Nihonga, Sumie, Ukiyoe and more), Buddhism and Shintoism Arts, Calligraphy, Archaic Civilizations, Western Classical and Modern Arts, Contemporary Arts, Ceramics and Photography.
