¡ I'm a freelance manga/Japanese comic artist. I was born and grew up in downtown Tokyo. Since I was a bit introverted, I became a girl who likes reading books (of course including manga) and drawing pictures.

I like Norse mythology, Edda and Saga. Visiting museums, ruins and castles. Having a stroll in the town, Riding a bicycle. Sometimes I enjoy wearing Kimono, Japanese folk costume. Listening music of E.Grieg, J.Sibelius, R Wagner and Secret Garden. I'm fond of Korean historical dramas and the mystery novel "Brother Cadfael"series...And I'm a cat-lover.(=^E^=)
