Cherish living as you are.

During our five years of study abroad, we were exposed to the amazing communication skills, resourcefulness, and creativity of actors who are active in the United States.

The one thing they put the most emphasis on was improvisation, one of the expressive arts.

Through my exposure to improvisation, I myself was freed from the social pressures of my childhood, and it helped me to change into the person I wanted to be.

I would like to spread improvisation in Japan and help people realize a world where they can live their own lives.

It doesn’t have to be perfect.

When I was battling overeating and vomiting, my mentor said something that changed my life.

“I’m enough, I don’t need to be perfect.”
“I’m enough, I don’t need to be perfect.”

I just couldn’t say these words.
And I was shocked to realize that I had come this far without ever once admitting it to myself.

From that experience, I started the business with the hope that people would make time to face themselves, not for someone else, but for themselves.

Through Improv, I hope to provide an environment where you can face yourself and grow as a person.
