Is a Japanese woman living in Tokyo and Sydney. She visited 193 UN countries, but her travels also include Mogadishu in Somalia, Kurdistan in Iraq, North Pole, South Pole, Titanic wreck (4000 meters below the sea level), East Germany and many other islands and territories, and a Zero gravity flight.
My motto is: The road goes on forever and the journey never ends. I always had an urge to travel, but for two decades the focus was on the upbringing of three children and a professional career as a CEO, CFO and management consultant. When I turned 60 and had reached the score of 100 countries, I decided to reach the goal of all 193 UN countries before I turned 70. I hope I will never lose the drive and the curiosity to get to know new places and meet people.

This time I didn’t return and continued to Japan, where I’ve lived for nearly 50 years. In 2016, I visited Equatorial Guinea, my final UN country. Very pleased to have achieved my childhood goal and happy to have had such a great life!
