I moved from Japan in the Spring of 1986 and have lived in New York ever since. I am a multi talented individual who did not fit in my country 30 years ago. What America has offered me is the opportunity to grow and explore my potential, and further, to live my life fully. I began my hub writings in the wake of the 5th anniversary of the 2011 Great East Japan Catastrophe. I dedicate my writing effort to Japan with my prayer for healing.
