When did you start modeling? What kind of jobs do you usually do?
I started modeling when I was 18 years old, I entered " Miss Japan " and got selected as one of candidates.
Since I've just entered an university, my parents didn't allow me to participate and I had to give up the dream for the prize.
Lucky for me, a model agency asked me to work as a model, this was the start of modeling work.
I worked for a few advertising jobs, private modeling, short films, magazine work, and website work. But I decided to take a few years to change the fields, to find some other possibilities for my future.
Since I've started modeling again, artistic photography/modeling are my fields I would like to build onto the experience I have already obtained.
Is your 'book' online? Can you provide a link to it?
Regarding reall "Books" I'm afraid but I hesitate to show you them.
Because they are all gravure magazines which I've worked for long time ago, and I've completely change my style/fields to work onto.
I've gotten an offer to publish a photograph collection, hopefully by next year and provide a link here soon...
I've put a link of online article instead. I hope it will be reminder that Japan is still suffering... Icon-Americana by Rick Weaver;
My profile on Model Mayhem;
My page on Facebook ( You can see more photos of me ;) xox )
What method did you follow to get the expression or the attitude that they were seeking?
Not to think about person who has the camera. Working with personal feelings/thoughts towards the photographer shouldn't be had, it works very badly to the results.
What I have to see is not the photographer, people who will see the photos later, so just enjoy the theme and concept.
Do you pose nude? Yes, no, it depends?
Officially " NO "
At that time I barely do it.
But when I found a photographer whom I really would love to work with and he/she wanted it, I would.
Would you like to work behind the camera? Have you ever tried?
YES, but every time I try, I have to know it's better to be in front of the camera more than being behind of it.
I really love both of them, but the photos I take will be hard to say " Nice! ", just taking pictures what caught my eyes in my daily life is good enough, not for work.
When you see the result, is it usually as you imagined?
" No, never ever "
They are always beyond my expectation.
I appreciate all of photographers, MUA, hair stylists, everyone whom I have worked with.
Name three male and female models whose work you admire.
Actually " No one "...It may be " too many to name "...
I saw many models' works and admire them and adore the works, but in reality, no one has influenced on me to work as a model.
It might sound like I'm very arrogant but I don't want to copy or follow anyone's style.
Hope this is the answer for it.

I love traveling!! :)
