I am a Japanese to English translator based in Bangkok and active long-distance in SCBWI Tokyo. I co-moderate the SCBWI Tokyo Translation Group Listserv, which focuses on translation of Japanese children's literature into English, and contribute to the SCBWI Tokyo Translation Group Blog (http://ihatov.wordpress.com).
My translations include the middle grade historical novel J-Boys: Kazuo's World, Tokyo, 1965 by Shogo Oketani (Stone Bridge Press) and the story "House of Trust" by Sachiko Kashiwaba in Tomo: Friendship Through Fiction-An Anthology of Japan Teen Stories, edited by Holly Thompson.
