DIGITAL MARKETER SPEAKER
Japanese-born American, currently based in Tokyo.
I wear multiple hats as Scent Communicator/Digital Marketer/Speaker, in addition to a full-time work at IT company. Fluent in Japanese and English, conversational in French and ice-breaking level of Spanish and Chinese.
I am passionate to create "A Scent World, that creates A Better Society" under the mission "Bridge and Blend", pursuing the possibility of "scent" every single day.
I have been curious about cross-cultural/intercultural issues in diverse contexts since my youth, and ended up going to a graduate school in this field.
I love traveling, and lived in Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, New York, and Singapore before relocating back to Tokyo in 2017
I advocate "KOIKU" (Scent Education) through
event, marketing and product development, and strive to share the world of scent in an easy-to-understand manner.
One of activities is my signature scent event "Creative Incense Workshop" that was held in Singapore, New York and Tokyo.
