Sayo grew up in north west Japan surrounded by beautiful mountains. Her dad, a Buddhist priest, always taught her to appreciate people and things around her. She grew up living in her father's temple in a traditional family. She learned that even Japan had very unique and different cultures, lifestyles and languages when she moved to Osaka. It made her more interested in understanding another world by meeting people and seeing environment.
She experienced living in North Finland as a intern when she was 22 before moving back to Japan to become special education teacher. While she was in Finland she noticed how naturally brands like Marimekko and Aarikka fit into people’s lifestyle in their home, school and work. She saw that Finnish women were independent and had good balance in their life and shined with a positive confidence. It was very natural for them to have free time after work or even when taking care of their family. They were active,expressing their individuality riding horses through snowy fields, fishing on a frozen lake, taking a sauna in the snow or just relaxing in front of fire after work. The lifestyle of Finnish women inspired Sayo with an image of natural beauty, balance in life and being true to yourself.
Sayo is enjoying her life in Bend and its beautiful natural surroundings, appreciates her active life and being herself thanks to wonderful the people and environment. She hopes share some of her experiences with guests at moro moro and inspire them to live their life with their own natural beauty.

Story of Marimekko
Marimekko is a Finnish design house founded in 1951. For seventy years, the unmistakable Marimekko prints have been worn as bold badges of positivity and personal empowerment. The lifelong mission of Marimekko is to bring color and joy into lives and homes everywhere and encourage people to be happy as they are. Striped, checked, and floral prints in bold colors make up a rich artistic legacy. Over the years, designers of Marimekko have created some 3,500 print designs, which have graced everything from dresses and bags to ceramics, fabrics, and more. Proving their timeless appeal, the iconic prints have been reborn time and again in thousands of imaginative color palettes. And each year, new pieces of printed artworks are introduced to an ever-evolving collection.
Story of Onitsuka Tiger
Onitsuka Tiger set out to help the youth of Japan and rebuild a better future in 1949. Mr Kihachiro Onitsuka believed playing sport was the best way to unite people and connect communities.
A history that prided itself on a Japanese craftsmanship combined with a timeless aesthetic that was discovered on the track, and later worn on the street.
Seventy years on, this same philosophy remains.
