"From the moment I first tried my hand in the kitchen, at 5 or 6 years old, I knew that cooking would become my life. Combining my passion for food and wine with my experiences cooking abroad, I aim to bring pleasure to our diners through well-matched pairings of cuisine
and wine."

"I get to organize a diverse range of events, from trips to a traditional sake brewery to Halloween activities for kids to a lecture by one of the few women to have climbed Mount Everest. Every day is different and exciting, and I'm never stuck at my desk all day long. I like that I can interact with so many people, both Members and staff, plus it's great to see my hard work pay off as Members enjoy themselves at the events."

"It's fascinating to meet famed winemakers from all over the world on the job and learn about their wine's history and culture. With every winemaker I meet, I'm always surprised and inspired by how much passion, how much love, they put into the grape. Through their experiences, I'm lucky to be able to deepen my own understanding of wine."

My current position was the perfect opportunity for meI can grow and learn in a diverse environment, surrounded by fascinating people of all ages and nationalities. It's hard to find a place like this, especially in Japan, and I'm proud to be a part of it."
