Biography:
Through a desire to help people understand the traditional culture behind many of the modern aspects of Japanese art and lifestyle, Akemi has worked closely with the Anime and Manga community, speaking at many conventions and founding AJAMCA, the Anglo-Japanese Anime and Manga Cultural Association. She also has a lot of time and appreciation for people involved in cosplay. Indeed, she has described her own use of western clothing in her free time as a form of reverse cosplay, as she spends most of her life dressed in kimonos.
She started charity for orphans after Tsunami in 2011, www.aidforjapan.org.uk
