Yoko is a Cardiff-based writer and cultural historian specialising in Japanese gardens and the relationship between Japan and the West. Her publications include Sisters: The Geisha in Western Culture and Japanese Zen Gardens. She is an expert in Japanese gardens, and the relationship between Japan and the West.
