About me

I am an illustrator / designer based in Tamba, a beautiful town in the countryside of Hyogo. I live in a shared house, in a traditional folk house and enjoy my life surrounded by rice fields, beautiful creeks and mountains. I’m looking forward to showing you my inspiring life here in a very local area!

What does traveling mean to me

Travel is the best teacher. It broadens our mind, develops cultural empathy and gives us a better understanding of the world

        Saica san was a really helpful and heart warming guide. She also speaks various languages and that was really useful. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to discover Kyoto.
