She has also authored two books of chronicles: Okinawa. Un siglo en el Perú (2006) and Crónicas de mujeres nikkei (2019). In 2006, she was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for Okinawa, and for forty years she has dedicated herself to promoting the Asian presence in Peru and Latin America. She is the former cultural director of the Peruvian Book Chamber and currently works at Kimochi Cultural Management, a space for innovation and creativity.
