Yukari has lived in Tokyo, Hong Kong, London and Scotland. She draws ideas from the varied societies she has experienced and observed: from working and living in Shinjuku – the biggest entertainment & red-light district in Tokyo – to serving high-end travellers as a cabin attendant for an international airline. Based on her own experiences and stories she has collected, Yukari weaves fictional worlds with a truly cinematic vision.
