About Us

Takagi Kumiko
Communicator, President of Goisshoshimasho
I have been working as a foreign language interpreter, translator, tutor for about 40 years.
An experience of encouraging people who suffered from the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 made me turn to be a communicator for people in locked-in states because of severe disease or injury. Member on board of non-profit organization by and for stroke survivors. ICT support. I am in a dilemma about what to do with beautiful empty chocolate boxes and gift wrapping paper I can’t throw overwhelming my space at home.

Blog Buddy
