Meet The Editors: Emi Kameoka
July 11, 2011
Introducing our Tokyo team
- Text by Satellite Voices
Emi Kameoka is Tokyo born-and-bred. She studied for a law degree at Sophia University but decided to throw herself into her all time love, magazines. After exploring London for three years, she moved back to Tokyo and is currently working as a fashion assistant at Vogue Hommes Japan, where she has been since 2008. Emi is always keen to meet new, creative and friendly characters; she loves staring at beautiful people and has an eyelash fetish. Her dream is to enter the world of Haruki Murakami, wishing she could live in Yayoi Kusama’s polka dot house. My Little Pony is her one true vice and weakness.
Satellite Voices: What’s your occupation?
Emi Kameoka: I am an editor.
SV: What inspires you about the area that you live and work in?
Emi Kameoka: It is not limited in one area. I like my neighbourhood because it is cozy and quite and within 15 minutes walk I can go to crazy central. This balance is very important for me.
SV: What is your favourite hidden city spot and why?
Emi Kameoka: A pond in my garden.
SV: What can you find in your city that you cant get anywhere else?
Emi Kameoka: Minty eye drops, crazy glittery stickers, wasabi flavour Kitkats, Pikachu costume suits, more and more... Tokyo is a big city, urban and local at the same time. If you go to a certain spot, most of the time you will see and meet a certain type of person with a certain interest. But most of all, it is filled with amazing people living full of ‘omoiyari’ (kindheartedness in Japanese). Tokyo is my sweet home town.
SV: What projects are you working on at the moment and what’s next?
Emi Kameoka: I am figuring out what I can do confronting this natural disaster. I am finding my way how I can assist to recover from the devastating effects of the worst earthquake...
SV: How would you describe your personal style with your work?
Emi Kameoka: I do my best no matter what. I always try to set a high value on human relationships.
