Kasumi Abe is a Japanese N.Y. based journalist, author, photographer, especially known as a Yahoo! Japan News and Newsweek ‘s columnist, cross FM reporter, and magazine and newspaper editor with 20+ years of experience in both Japan and the U.S.
In the late ’90s in Japan, my career started as a staff editor on the music and entertainment contents for the magazine. My role was interviewing with major professional musicians day by day. Later on, I was offered an editor-in-chief position for several guidebooks. After the mission completed, I moved to N.Y. in 2002 to pursue my dream. I engaged myself as a senior editor and a writer for the local newspaper between 2007-14, and everything got ready, then – I decided to be independent in October 2014.
2018 was my special year. One of my long life dreams came true, I published as an author and photographer – Tabi no Hint Book . It has gotten 5 stars on Amazon 🙂

What I Like
Exploring the city to find nice cheap eats. Love Jazz, salsa, chilling at the beach (dreaming of Varadero), snowboarding, learning new languages (to become a polyglot is my next challenge), traveling, cheering up the soccer teams over a local pale ale or pilsner and meet interesting people;)
Let’s make something together.
