Famous People in Japan

Mure Yoko

Date of Birth 5 December 1954
Place of Birth Tokyo

Mure Yoko writes a lot of essays and stories.

After she graduated from the College of art in Nihon-University, she changed her job again and again. For example, she was employed in an advertising agency, then an editing production, and then a magazine office.

She made her debut as a writer with "Gozen-Reiji-no-Genmaipan" ("A Midnight Whole-Rice Bun").

Her book, the series of "Mujirushi-Ryohin"("Unbranded-Quality Item") is a long-seller.

She has some wonderful powers of observation and she writes her daily life accidents or events with an attractive point of view. So her essays are quite delightful. She seems to know herself well, so if she has some troubles or problems, I'm sure she can laugh them away.
