Web and Graphic designer living in Aichi Prefecture for more than 15 years.
Sharing Japanese culture with other travelers is such a powerful experience that gives me the chance to bring them closer to the exciting world of Japan’s art performances. I’m an apprentice of Nihon Buyo with more than 3 years of experience dancing traditional pieces. I know how hard it is to understand some parts of the Japanese culture like the traditional performances so I will be very happy to share with you all the secrets of this amazing art.

I’m looking forward to explaining to you everything I know about Nihon Buyo and Japanese dances!
