Served at Buckingham Palace
I was always fascinated by the country's imperial monarchy. Today, Japan is home to the only remaining emperor on Earth - a source of immense pride for me and many others! Although removed from us, we still feel connected through their gracious presence and deep-rooted cultural customs such as sushi. In 2007, it became my honourable privilege to serve at Buckingham Palace; something that will stay with me forevermore.
With much trepidation and opposition from friends and family, I married a foreigner in Japan. Only my grandmother gave me her blessing - she was overjoyed that we had chosen to make England our home due to Queen Elizabeth's reign. Even at the age of 80, my grandma travelled all the way to London for our wedding day where upon seeing Buckingham Palace she bowed deeply with heartfelt gratitude towards Her Majesty on behalf of myself; truly one of life’s sweetest moments! Although my marriage did not last, I remain profoundly grateful for this incredible country which has given me both business opportunities as well as wonderful friendships throughout many memorable experiences.
This month marks a momentous occasion - the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. The joyous event will undoubtedly be felt by all, especially Her Majesty the Queen who can look forward to her son taking up his royal mantle as ruler of this fair nation! It is our hope that His Highness Charles will serve faithfully in reign for many years ahead.
Ihave been blessed to work with many clients in the past. Here are some of my style of servings.
