What do you love most about your hometown in Japan?
My parents and relatives who all still live in Okinawa. And the tropical weather.
What's your favourite summer meal?
My boyfriend's breakfast smoothie.
What has been your favourite costume to wear?
The tutu from Grand Pas Classique which David McAllister designed. It's very simple, but looks and feels gorgeous.
Talk us through your favourite outfit...
My mother gave me her kimono, which was made into a dress by Kerry from the wardrobe department. I love it because it's beautiful and means so much to me.
Do you have obsessions outside of ballet?
I love Sudoku and jigsaw puzzles. I also support Melbourne Storm!
How do you unwind on your day off?
Just relaxing on the couch in front of the big TV, watching Foxtel or doing a puzzle.
How do you keep focus before you go on stage?
It depends on what role I'll be performing that night. Different roles require different kinds of preparation, but I always make sure I have warmed up properly.
Do you have an idol?
My parents for all their support.
