I was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan, spent most of my 20’s in the U.S., and now I live in Budapest, Hungary, with my two sons. I’m a freelance English to Japanese translator, and I enjoy cooking, taking photos, DIYing my flat, and traveling.

“MISTRANSLATION SQUARE”: As a reviewer, I have encountered numerous mistranslations. Many of them will shock you. Even worse, many of them will make you liable for damage. I will list them up in this page with my explanations to give you a glimpse into the consequences of hiring wrong translators. The source text should be translated appropriately or should not be translated at all.
I have been running a multilingual babysitter website, www.sitters.hu, since 2008.
Since my childhood, I always have passion for films, and I practically learned how to speak English by watching films. I was hoping to work for a film one day, and in year 2012, I was offered a chance to take part in the production of a Hungarian film called “Liza, a rókatündér” (Liza, The Fox Fairy), and I gained a range of valuable experiences.
- Translated several dialogues into Japanese
- Oversaw Hungarian actors delivering Japanese dialogues
- Wrote Japanese lyrics for five soundtracks
- Assisted in preparing Japan/Japanese-related props
My IMDb page was created as well.
This is a list of articles in which my name is mentioned as the lyricist.

Also, I have been cast in two films as a background artist. These too were valuable experiences. It’s unthinkable if I were living in Japan. Acting looks like a glamorous occupation, but it must be surprisingly tough.
