Kyoko is a friend I made in Bangkok in 2004/2005. She was taking a long hiatus from living and working in Sri Lanka, where her family runs a restaurant, Cafe Japan. After living a couple of years in Thailand, Kyoko returned to Colombo, Sri Lanka, and has been living there ever since. I believe these days she's helping her sister run the restaurant. She also is the creator of the Cafe Japan website, which is always updated with interesting photos of fabulous foods and writeups on the art of Japanese eating. In her spare time, Kyoko loves to travel. She takes trips to Laos, back home to Japan and return visits to Bangkok. Kade and I were very lucky to see on her our own return visit to Bangkok this past spring. Here's a video of our surprise moment with Kyoko. Lastly, as you can tell, Kyoko is quite the Sportslady. She golfs regularly and she takes Akido classes.
