Destination Specialist, Vancouver
My love of travel started very young.  I travelled regularly with my family and this included visiting European relatives and being exposed to very rich cultures.  Eventually, my love of travel brought me to discover other cultures and beautiful landscapes that are found in regions like Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. I am proud to now say that I have worked over 30 years in the travel industry (certified and ‘fluent’ in the South Pacific regions)!  Hey, it was and is still my first and only ‘grown-up job’!

Where I’ve visited: New Zealand, Australia, Kenya, Malaysia, Thailand, Cook Islands, Samoa, Tahiti, Fiji

I first became acquainted with the South Pacific during a 4-month backpacking trip many years ago. I later spent six years living in New Zealand and have now made more than two dozen trips to Australia, New Zealand as well as French Polynesia, Fiji and the Cook Islands. This corner of the world holds special interest for me due to the fabulous variety of landscapes, the uncrowded and unspoiled rural areas, the vibrant cities, the amazing wildlife, and the coastal zones complete with reefs, islands, beaches and dramatic shorelines!

I was born and raised in Japan and I have lived in Hawaii and Gold Coast, Australia. Living near the ocean and in breathtaking natural surrounds has afforded me with a culturally-rich lifestyle. Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific are regions you could relax and escape to from the daily grind of life just by immersing yourself in unforgettable natural wonders all around! Asia offers more unique destinations to explore; you’ll experience something very unique in each Asian country, from the origins to the history, architecture, cuisine and so on.

Where I’ve Visited: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China and Australia
