I was born and raised in Tokyo. I lived in S.E. Asia for 8 years before moving to California in 2008. My dream to become a florist started when I was 5 years old. My mother used to take me to flower shops if we ever needed something for a special occasion. I loved picking up the flowers and smelling them as I watched the florist arrange and wrap beautiful bouquets. I finally pursued my dream in 2012 as I started working in shops. I eventually became a freelance designer and was even able to travel the world doing what I love. After having our first child, my husband and I decided to open this flower shop in larkspur.
