Upon returning to Japan, she joined SHINKA with the aim of more fully utilizing the skills she had honed, as well as her language ability.

She returned to Japan after moving her life base to America in her teens and gaining proficiency in languages and the many areas of the hospitality field. It is not going too far to say that it is because her broad-minded sensitivity was able to go out and become exposed to the world at an early stage. She is studying hard every day, learning Japanese technology from the basics, and aiming to become a beautician who is active internationally. Using her linguistic ability to instantly create an atmosphere that causes customers from a wide range of countries to feel relaxed, she is an important resource underlying the values of SHINKA as a global salon.

She has qualifications in make-up, hair arrangement, dress and eyelashes, she demonstrates potential in the field of total beauty.
