About Me
I have a Ph.D in Japanese studies from the Graduate University for Advanced Studies in Kyoto located in the International Research Center for Japanese Studies (Nichibunken) in Kyoto. I relocated to the US in 2004 upon marrying my husband who is a professor/neurologist at the School of Medicine, University of Louisville in Kentucky. We both travel extensively all over the world and to Japan at least once every two years. I am fluent in Japanese and am a professional translator/interpreter in Japanese as well interested in aging and social policies related to Dementia in Japan. My husband will be doing a sabbatical in Kyoto for 11 months and hence we are looking for our dream house in Kyoto, as well as hoping to rent our beautiful home for that period in Louisville, Kentucky
