Kayoko Hirata Paku Articles
Kayoko is a food writer, translator, and amateur sake enthusiast. After spending her high school and college years in the U.S. with a brief stint in Italy, she returned to Japan to work at a Japanese IT company until she followed her passion to enter the culinary world. Aside from her role as a writer for SAKETIMES, she writes for other publications and media and enjoys exploring sake at her neighborhood kakuuchi during her free time. She resides in Tokyo with her peanut butter-addicted husband, a very hungry toddler, and many half-dead plants.
