About your host

When I first saw traditional Japanese plays, I became fascinated by Japanese art. I left my busy career in information technology to become a promoter of traditional Japanese culture and a cultural coordinator to introduce our wonderful culture to others—including Bunraku. I’m also a certified teacher of the art of Japanese incense, to share the art of incense and help others relax.
