My name is Arisa and was a veteran cosplayer for 12 years before becoming a mom of 2 beautiful girls and moving to Kyoto, Japan. Been writing since 2012, creating Japan related, beauty & fashion contents monthly on my blog for my readers. Writing has always brought me joy & comfort, the freedom to express my thoughts & emotions while connecting with people around the world. Before this i was an active fashion & costume designer, it was my calling but unfortunately being in this field we never know when will our next meal will be. I would definitely love to revisit this passion again someday once i'm more stable. My dream is to one day create a collection of children clothings dedicated to my late daughter, Mariko Thanks for reading till the end!
