What do you do?
designer/fashion model.

Where are you from?
Kyoto



What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Massive Attack and Young Fathers at Toyosu PIT in Tokyo in 2017. Actually, the members of Young Fathers are my friends and I got a chance to go to the gig, but Massive Attack was so shocking to me - the images had such strong messages. The music and the artist had a great impact on me, so I could not focus on the other gigs after that.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Maybe the punk scene from the UK. My mother loved rock music and so that’s what I listened to growing up, but punk rock was what I chose first. Including the fashion, like Vivienne Westwood, I became to love the style.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
As a DJ, I’d say CLUB METRO in Kyoto. I used to go there as a guest so I feel something special to it. I played mainly '90s rock music.

If you could be on the line up with any band in history?
Young Fathers. I would love to get on stage with them as a dancer.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
I would love to be crazy with Sid Vicious at the clubs in London. It would definitely be fun. I just cannot stop thinking about how it would be!

Your greatest unsung hero (or heroine) in music?
Young Fathers. They have already been active for about 20 years, and they are like legends in my mind but I believe that more people should know them.
