I graduated from the University of Tokyo, where I earned my master's degree in cultural anthropology with a major in tourism. I became a Ph.D. candidate after I completed the Ph.D. course with the same major in master. I have both a Japanese tour guide and tour manager’s license and have years of experience hosting tour groups and private tours. In 2016, I taught Japanese for one year at Fu Jen Catholic University in Taiwan. I got the license of teaching foreigners Chinese in 2010 and started to teach Chinese since 2018. I have taught Elementary, intermediate, and advanced Chinese.
