Over the years, she has taken lessons in Japanese papermaking, flower arranging, pottery, noren-making, calligraphy, the tea ceremony and weaving. Collectively, these experiences have led to a deep love of the country and a rare understanding of cultural, aesthetic and linguistic nuances. She brings a rare blend of Japan scholarship, life coaching and business savvy.

Beth describes herself as a wanderer, an adventurer and a seeker of beauty, with a slight obsession with chocolate and Japanese stationery. Mother of two adorable girls, she lives a slow-ish life on the South Coast of England, and loves nothing more than a dose of shinrin-yoku(forest bathing) and a picnic with her young family.
