A little about myself:
Hi there! I’m Christine and I’m an on-air host on Japan Top 10, currently based in Toronto, Canada.
I definitely grew up with a lot of Japanese cultural influences and, like many, have read manga and watched anime growing up. I’m particularly interested in the way Japanese seiyuus (voice actors/actresses) portray their character in animes and as a result, follow some Japanese radio shows and podcasts hosted by seiyuus.
I’ve been listening to Japanese music ever since I discovered Utada Hikaru’s album “Heart Station” back in 2008 and from there, my Japanese music playlist gradually expanded. Before I know it, the contents of my music library is filled with almost solely Japanese music. Some of my favourite Japanese artists and composers include: Utada HIkaru, Nakashima Mika, Eve, LiSA, Amazarashi, Ryokuoushoku Shakai, BURNOUT SYNDROMES, Cö Shu Nie, Hayashi Yuki, Sawano Hiroyuki.
I’m very excited to be a part of the J-Top 10 podcast and I look forward to connecting with listeners around the world through Japanese music!
