My dream home would have:
A big tank for tropical fish or jellyfish. It’d be like an aquarium.
You’re from Japan—what’s your favourite Japanese food?
Something I’d recommend would be sushi. There are many types of sushi and my favourite is the one with the salmon filling. In fact, if I could eat one thing for the rest of my life, I’d choose sushi and rotate the flavours!
If you could live in a book/movie, what would it be and why?
Harry Potter. I want be a witch, and be able to use magic to fly.
My most memorable trip was to:
Canada. It was my first trip. I was impressed with the difference in lifestyles, in comparison with the Japanese way of life. It really opened my mind.
What is the one thing you can’t live without?
Baths. (laughs) It’s the most relaxing time to me. I like listening to music while taking baths.
If you can keep any animal as a pet, what would you want as a pet?
A white lion. It’s a rare animal. I’d like a big fluffy lion, and lie down on him as if he were a pillow.
