Through her years studying abroad in Australia and the United States, Shoran found herself drawn to Japanese calligraphy. “I had a desire to spread Japanese traditional culture overseas and pass it on to the next generation.”
Upon returning to Japan, she worked as a Cabin Attendant for ANA and had the chance to travel further around Japan and the world.
After retiring from her job at ANA, she currently holds calligraphy classes and workshops in Tokyo, Shizuoka, and virtually. In addition, she creates Shodo art, commissioned works, and performs across Japan and the world.
