Japan Specialist

Augusta 3 Copy

Augusta grew up in her family-owned Cotswold farmhouse with an appreciation for timeless and unspoiled nature. With an architect father and art historian mother, both of whom were brought up abroad, Augusta spent many summers on cultural escapades throughout Europe. From an early age she was instilled with a strong desire to explore new and exciting locations, and had a sense of eagerness to live in different countries.

Between school and university, Augusta volunteered in Kenya, inspired by the stories of family members who once lived there (such as riding a pet zebra to pony club!). The unforgettable trip confirmed her love for travelling, integrating with new people and learning about different cultures. This led her to apply for a year abroad during her degree at Durham, and she was lucky enough to be given the incredible opportunity to study at the renowned and highly prestigious University of Tokyo. She fell completely head over heels for Japan and all its intricacies and idiosyncrasies, and now she can share her enthusiasm for the country, use her insider’s knowledge and continually learn more about the place she adores.
