Akiko Yamamoto

Cultural Pavilion

Akiko is the Japan Outreach Inititative Coordinator at Univercity of West Florida.
She worked for a long time in a national university and a local government there. She started practicing Hawaiian hula while working as a university administrator. This sparked her interest in other cultures abroad. She had applied this interest to her work, working on international exchange programs at the university and inbound projects for a local government. She learned firsthand the joys and importance of international exchange for students and community people. With these experiences, she would like many people in Pensacola to know about Japanese culture and real life. She also wants to learn about the lives and values of American people. She is good at calligraphy and hula and likes to wear kimonos, cook Japanese foods, watch sports and immerse herself in nature.
