Born in Yokohama. She spent her childhood in India with her father who was a broadcast journalist. She majored in history at university with the aim of becoming an archaeologist, but after graduation while working in design industry, thought, “I’d rather make a new one than dig out the old one.” Her travels to America and Europe, struck her with their quality of the design, art, and museums. She studied at an art college in the UK subsequently completing MA in museum studies at University of London.
During that time, she met her husband, who loves architecture, and as she went around looking at architecture, a new passion came into bloom. She took root in London, and around that time, began writing about the latest architecture and design in Europe, including England, at Japanese lifestyle magazine called 'Casabrutas'.
Since then, she has contributed articles to numerous Japanese magazines for more than 20 years.
