I was born and grew up in Tokyo. After graduating from Waseda University with a degree in theatre studies, I worked as an actor for a decade in Japan (I know I look younger than that!). Wanting to challenge myself and work internationally, I came to the UK in 2013, and retrained at the East 15 Acting School. Since then, I have worked in various countries including Egypt, India and Poland. Receiving the Best Actress Award at Russia’s Art Okraina International Theatre Festival for my role in Hamlet, I am now seeking roles in the UK.
