About Me


My name is Makiko.


Since 2005, I have traveled abroad, studied contemporary dance in Europe, and worked as a yoga instructor.


In 2009, I acquired Western Reiki in Rishikesh, India, and was drawn to the depth of energy work. A year later, I came across the Lightarian program and was led to it.


After traveling around the world asking spirits for guidance, I landed on Ishigaki Island in 2013.


With the idea that "spirituality = love," I deliver refined energy while healing myself in the extraordinary nature of Ishigaki Island.
