Tomoko Murai

Around 2010, due to a family illness, Tomoko started to seriously consider what I should do to live a healthy life, and started to read works by Toru Ano, Takaho Watayo, etc.
Through her daily meals, she searched for ways to become healthy both physically and mentally, which led her to encountering macrobiotics. Tomoko studied and graduated from the Lima Cooking School of the Japanese CI Association, where I learned up to the level of a teacher (now the Master Course). While studying at the cooking school, I also started to volunteer at the Yukikazu Sakurazawa Data Room and began organizing activities for Yukikazu Sakurazawa’s works. read more…
