I was born in Otsu City, Shiga Prefecture, and have lived in Osaka, Vancouver, Canada, and Tokyo, and moved to Kyoto when joining Hachise.

I have longed for Kyoto since I was little, and even now I am often impressed by the charm of Kyoto, such as the beautiful scenery of Kamo River and the majestic appearance of shrines and temples that I see in my daily life.

In my previous job, I was in charge of sales and site supervision related to setting up venues for corporate events and exhibitions. Since I was mainly in charge of foreign-affiliated companies, I was inspired a lot by interacting with other countries and working overseas.
As I get more fascinated about creation and fabrication, my desire to make something that last for a long time, not just during the event, gradually became stronger every day,

That’s when I found Hachise.
They were hiring for a new position to support foreign customers that were gradually increasing at that time.

I was very interested in traditional Japanese buildings, because I used to study space design in Kyoto and I had the opportunities to visit the renovation site of Machiyas and worked on some school projects on renovating a Machiya.
So, when I saw Hachise's job recruitment, I felt like I fell in love with it at first glance.

I have always wanted to share about Japan with foreigners, and that has been the core of my job since I was in Canada.
At Hachise, due to the nature of the properties we handle, I have many opportunities to meet customers who understand and value the culture of Japan and Kyoto. Moreover, I often end up learning about Japan from them.

I keep in touch with many customers even after the transaction is completed, and I feel happy to hear from them when they come to Japan.
Meeting such customers and listening to stories about enjoying life in Kyoto at a new home are what make my job worthwhile.
