A little about myself:

It might sound boring, but I initially became fascinated with Japanese culture through researching Japan’s history. As a child, I was also strongly impacted by the Studio Ghibli movie “Spirited Away” and I have been a fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s animation ever since. I chose Music as my career path so it was quite natural for me to get into Japanese music, and my favourite artists include Ryuichi Sakamoto, Joe Hisaishi and YMO. I also really admire Japanese Jazz. Those guys are crazy!
