Okayamato Photo Writer List
Born in 1978 in Miyazaki and currently living in Okayama, Eri used to work as a full-time newspaper journalist. She is now independent and writes for a number of publications across a variety of genres. As her husband’s job requires him to regularly relocate to different regions of Japan, most recently from Ehime to Okayama, Eri has for the last several years enjoyed living in the Setouchi area.
She says that Setouchi has a lot to offer particularly in terms of food and culture, which are both very well-established and can’t be found anywhere else in Japan. Eri says that she will try to reflect her fascination with the Setouchi area with her words and pictures via Setouchi Finder.
