1980, Fukoka

Deeply influenced by her mother at a young age, she was trained in Ikebana, Calligraphy, Tea Ceremony, traditional Japanese dance and many other types of Japanese culture.

After graduating highschool, she went to Kwassui Girls Short Form School in Nagasaki (now known as Kwassui Women’s University), went through as an English Literature Major and started to learn not only about English literature but the culture that was behind it.

She then went to work for a large insurance company. During this time, she continued to be a manner’s instructor and worked with the new recruits at that company to be the most gracious they could be.
