スペシャリティはhand balance。

 

Was born in Japan in 1997 and currently studies contemporary circus in Portugal. She began circus at Musik og Teaterhøjskolen in January 2020.

After graduating from elementary school, she decided to become a farmer as it had been her dream since she was a child.  She moved to the countryside without her family and started living with 5 other adults who lived self sufficiently.

When she reached the age of 18, she then began living COMPLETELY off-grid by herself. In 2018, She got the third prize in a Japanese art competition https://www.designstoriesinc.com/worldfood/art_and_design2-3/ writing about that story "The sky of mine".

Now, she finds her passion and love in circus especially hand balancing; she wants to combine circus with self-sufficient life in the near future.
