Being on a sail boat and swimming in the sea from an early age, I developed a particular affection for outdoor sports, later developing into surfing, snowboarding and trekking. Having never really believed in gyms and fitness, it’s as I was seeking a way to expand my trekking and mountaineering goals in Japan that Berie heard about SOGO’s Monday bouldering. Tried it once, became an addict!
And with it, the realization that a gym doesn’t have to be claustrophobic and lonely. It can be sunny, fun, and filled with great people. Every Sunday.
Grown up on the Mediterranean Coast, I spent a year in California, and 5 in India to study and work as a designer. Curious about other cultures and people, close to the outdoors, I love what comes out of spontaneous encounters and experiences. In Tokyo, that spontaneity has definitely been filled by the energy and passion in SOGO!
