President & Representative Director’s Profile Manami TominagaSWITCH T K.K.

As a writer and translator, I work on a wide range of topics from social issues, wine, lifestyle, culture, travel, and design. My interviews and news gathering activities are in both English and Japanese.

In recent years, I have developed a passion and deep interest in wine. Words and wine are very similar in that they reflect and are strongly colored by the geography, topography, culture, and historical background of a region. This passion for wine led me to earn certification as a wine expert. As a lecturer, I conduct wine seminars and am expanding my activities to contribute to the popularization of wine culture in Japan.

I want to continue exploring the wonderful fruits of “words and wine,” which are born of and find shape through human culture and society.
