What I Can Do

Art Workshop

I organize an art cooking workshop using Shiratama, the Japanese traditional sweets made from rice. Through the workshop, I want to create an enjoyable place where people get together, have fun and bring out their creativity.

Photography

I am passionate about taking photographs spotlighting happiness and beauty in our daily life. Capturing the beauty of people's smile, conversation and relaxing moment, I want to show people how we embrace our lovely life.

Writing

I write articles for several online magazines. My article mainly covers environmental & social issues, social startups and sustainable lifestyle. I am enthusiastic about giving readers a new perspective through my articles.

Day19: Lost item of human

This is the first “lost item” of humans that I saw in forests near the residency. There were no other human belongings around it, so it captured my attention. A lost item should return back to the original owner or someone else who can take […]

Day18: Crystal raindrops

When I see crystal raindrops at the edge of a branch or a leaf, I feel beautiful. It is because they shine under the sun. It is because they can be seen only under a certain environmental condition. And it is because they reflect various […]

Day17: Finnish bread made from rice and potatoes

Maitolaituri is an only cafe in Enonkoski. It used to be a supermarket but was renovated last year. They serve daily lunch, patisseries, cakes, coffee and tea. I tried a Finnish bread called Perunarieska made from potatoes, and another national bread called Karjalanpiirakka made from […]

Day16: Closer to forest

Here are some photos that I took while walking in a forest. The first photo looks as if small fir trees are singing and dancing together on a stage. From the second photo, I feel the length of time for which it has lived. It […]

Day15: It’s what’s on the inside that counts

I was blessed with people in Enonkoski. On the way to Enonkoski, the nearest town, I was successful in hitchhiking the elderly couple’car. At an only cafe in the town, the staff served me tasty Finnish bread and coffee during the business meeting. On the […]

It’s in winter. Unfortunately, I can’t pick up berries and edible plants in a forest. So, I tried fermented food that humans invented to survive the off-season from harvest. One of Finnish fermented food is Leipäjuusto (Finnish Squeaky Cheese). Yea, it tastes sweet 🙂 It’s […]

A Little Bit About Me

I’m Nagisa, an artist and creator from Japan. I’d love to make the world a little bit better place through my artworks.

I was born and raised in Nagoya, Japan. When I was a little girl, I was very curious about nature and people. My love for the sea and foreign countries made me think about environmental and social issues in the world. At university, I studied International Development in Tokyo, Japan and Brighton, England, thinking about what I can do to make a peaceful world.

My first career began as an interpreter/translator and a coordinator between てthe Japanese Government and foreign Governments at Ministry of Defense in Japan.

While working there, I couldn’t help but express what I see and feel through photos, writing, and all around creative types. After leaving the job, I studied photography and drawing in Denmark to regain my inspiration. The experience drove me into a creative field.

Now through my writing, photographies, and artworks, I am eager to let people notice the sustainable life is beautiful and enjoyable.
