The Accomplishments
Of Today's
Married Women®

Mrs. Pan Pacific International®

1.Tell us why anyone would want come to your hometown?
My hometown is Saitama Prefecture, close to Tokyo. You can enjoy the beautiful countryside in my hometown, such as the fields where vegetables are growing. However, not only the suburban life with nature, but you can also appreciate a convenient city life. For example, only within 30 minutes by train, you can visit Akihabara, an iconic town for subculture, and Asakusa, a city with traditional Japanese culture.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your closet and why?
Two important things in my closet are "a long shirt dress" and "a kimono." First, I frequently wear a long shirt dress because of its flexibility; I can wear it elegantly with a waist belt and high heels or casually with denim. Secondly, I bought a light purple kimono in my 20s, spending my first salary. Since I bought it, I have worn it on special occasions, including my children's entrance and graduation ceremonies.

3.What do you love to cook and why?
I love cooking, especially "bento" (Japanese packed lunch). I have made a bento for my children almost every day for eight years. When preparing a bento, I always consider a balance of nutrition. I also consider color coordination important; red, green, and yellow make my bento brilliant. In addition, I also like seeing the empty bento box my children brought back home. I feel relieved to know, "My children are mentally and physically healthy!"

4.If you had an extra hour each day, what would you do?
I have loved drawing pictures since I was a child. In my 40s, after my children entered junior high school, I started attending a painting class and learning oil painting. Using the drawing technique I have learned, I want to make a picture book full of heartfelt words and cute pictures. Through this picture book, I want to encourage many people to understand how people with ADHD perceive the world and sometimes get confused.

5.Describe the dirtiest job you have ever had to do?
The dirtiest job is washing my son's baseball uniform. My son belongs to a high school baseball club and practices almost every day. His uniform always becomes too muddy to wash in a laundry machine, so I must wash it by hand with full power. His uniform is literally "dirty"; however, I found his effort and growth every time I watched his game. That's why I want to support him by washing his uniform.
