I am passionate about learning, travelling and cooking. I am
fascinated by the way ancient people conceived about the world and
how early moderns interpreted the nature. I am studying history and
philosophy of science. I love travelling but haven't been
travelling lately. I would love to go to Europe and Scandinavian
countries but also enjoy travelling inside Japan (where I'm from).
There is so much to see. Also I LOVE cooking, again especially
Japanese food. I recently made sushi to raise money for the
earthquake victims in Japan at school. I also write essays and
What I’m doing with my life
I have just graduated from studying philosophy and history at
Concordia University, Montreal, last summer. Just got accepted into
the grad program at History of Philosophy Department at University
of Western Ontario, so I am moving to London in July. I left for
California in the US to study film writing right after graduating
from high school. But I did not like the program there. So I went
back to Japan for a while to reformulate my life plan, and worked
as an English teacher at a cram school. I also worked at a rather
large bookstore in Japan as a clerk, also in charge of magazines,
where I collected a lot of cuisine magazines. I cook Japanese
dishes, and bake some bread. After 3 years, I finally left Japan
for university in Montreal, Canada to study philosophy and history
- I want to be a professor of philosophy - this is why I am head
over heels on philosophy books and history of ideas. My primary
interest is on early modern philosophy, 16th & 17th century
science, philosophy and medicine. I am also interested in the
ancient Greek philosophy, and would like to specialize in both
areas. I am learning Latin and ancient Greek for the moment as well
as French. I love school, and this is why I want to do my MA, and
I have written about on (d)evolution of pop-culture in Japan,
Haitian zombies, and Ninja science.
My current undertakings -
- Alchemy and matter theory
- History and Philosophy of Witchcraft
- Medical Philosophy in Japan in the 17th century and before
- Philosophy of Japanese Folklore
- Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz and history and philosophy of
science in Europe.
I’m really good at
cooking, writing, making people laugh, having good conversations,
drinking coffee and eating chocolate, socializing, and playing
I'm also now growing plants. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
that I am funny and cheerful, friendly in nature. My jokes are
witty and can be sarcastic. - Okay I just realized those are
probably after the first few meetings people would normally notice
about me when meeting people from online, rather than meeting
people 'naturally' or more passively at school or somewhere, but
basically, I am kind, smart, and caring. Though, it's rather you
who is to be the judge of that.

The six things I could never do without
2. Good humour
5. My cat, Charlie
I spend a lot of time thinking about
books, philosophy, history, academics issues, friends, food,
cooking, coffee, penguins, and stars.
On a typical Friday night I am
cooking at home, or reading, or watching movies with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I believe in Santa Claus.
