Educator x Mother
Yasuka Inoue is the founder of Awaji Kids Garden, an international forest preschool that fosters exploration of nature and English. The forest and farmland of Awaji Island are an ideal natural environment for child development, and coupled with her own background in multicultural upbringing, Yasuka created a place where children can nurture healthy growth, creativity, independence, and respect for diversity. In all seasons and weathers, children, parents and staff spend all day outdoors at Awaji Kids Garden, exploring the wonders of nature, connecting heart-to-heart in the bilingual environment, and creating happiness for themselves and others.
A former solo flutist who has performed worldwide, Yasuka is now living on Awaji Island with her husband and two children.
