Born August 6, 1977 in Tokyo. Completed "Higashi Koganeimura Juku 2", an animation director training course sponsored by Hayao Miyazaki, while attending the Department of Architecture, Tokyo University of the Arts. Due to this connection, she was selected to play the role of Rin in the movie "Spirited Away". After that, she appeared as an actress in theater works and movies once every few years, and sang as a member of "Shibusashirazu" for the past few years. The music and travel project "White Elephant", which has been ongoing since 2011, continues hard even though it is almost forgotten. Every day I live with my dog, wondering what the other person is doing.

"May it continue forever."
[Cast] Miki Kobayashi
[Details] It has been about a year and a half since I became involved in this art festival, and during that time I myself have undergone many major changes. There were many days when I couldn't sleep until morning and thought about it on the balcony because of the amount of stimulation. I am very grateful that I met many people, encouraged each other, and became one of these wonderful bouquets. I hope it will continue forever.
