Born in Japan, adopted the U.S. as my home, somehow ended up living in Switzerland for years, now in France. I mostly write about Japanese food and Japanese culture, with a bit of France thrown in.

All of my photographs are marked All Rights Reserved. That means, ask before using them, and don't be surprised or upset if I say no. To be honest, I say no most of the time. If you are representing a for-profit publication or company, do not expect to use the photos for free. No I won't be thrilled by the 'exposure' you'll give me. I'm exposed enough, thanks.

    "Maki is a cool Foodie in Europe who understands the world, and how funny it can be. I am thrilled that she sometimes is willing to take us on Flickr expeditions to someplace or other for the best baguette... or just to see what is growing in the garden. Her photo stream is art that sometimes makes me laugh, and sometimes makes me hungry. Keep it up."
