Hey Kate, tell us a bit about yourself, your background, your brief life
story and career so far?
When I was a kid, I moved around a lot due to my parent’s work. I was bullied
because I’m mixed, so I think I was an introverted kid. I was not confident
even when I was modeling at that time. But now, I’m very confident and busting
my ass for modeling while studying economics at my college.
What’s the best thing about your hometown and why?
I’m from Sado Island in Japan. It’s a small island but I love it because it
has very fresh air, clean water, and tasty seafood. Most importantly, my
dearest grandma is living there.
Tell us about this shoot, where, when, and what you enjoyed about it?
We had this shoot in Hakone which is a very famous hot springs town. It was
really fun to work with a team that’s known each other for a while. The air
was fresh and the natural light was beautiful. I wish we had time for bathing
in the hot springs though… lol.
How did you get into modeling?
I’ve been modeling since when I was 3 years old. I was scouted for a kid’s
clothing brand model.
What’s been your career highlight so far?
I’d been working for Japanese fashion magazines and walking some runways since
when I was 3 years old. But I’ve just started my career as a bikini model this
year. So working for Playboy is going to be my career highlight as a bikini
model so far.
What’s the best thing about having Instagram as a tool? It’s easy to
connect and communicate with people from all over the world. If there’s no
Instagram, probably I wouldn’t have had the chance to work with Playboy.

How do you usually deal with negative criticism from followers?
So far I didn’t receive it that much though, I just keep pursuing whatever I
like and I don’t think I’ll ever care about it.
What are the best and worst things about being a model?
I can wear beautiful clothes and makeup and I can meet amazing people through
this work. I keep myself motivated to stay in shape which is sometimes
difficult but it’s totally worthy.
Do you have any guilty pleasures like food or bad comedies?
Anime… Sometimes I just spend the whole day watching it even if I have so many
things to do…
Favorite movie quote? It’s not a movie but anime called “Slam Dunk”,
“If you give up now, the game will be over.” That’s my favorite one.
