Meet The Mizuharas
What makes a family? Traveling together, growing together. On the road with Kiko and Yuka.
Tell me about yourself.
Hi, I'm Kiko Mizuhara, and I'm from Tokyo. I do modeling, acting, and lots of other things. But I love fashion. I'm a cat lover, I also enjoy scuba diving and i love nature.
Can you introduce your sister?
Of course. This my sister, Yuka Mizuhara. We share a passion for travel, music, and dancing. We're both cat lovers.
Where are you currently located?
We're currently in New York, although my sister, Yuka, is leaving for Tokyo tomorrow.
What does family mean to you?
To us, family means girl power. We're extremely close and share everything, from music, love to life experiences. We consider ourselves more like friends than a traditional family.
What values did your parents instil into you?
Our mother gave us a lot of freedom, which we value greatly. She allowed us to learn from our experiences, and she always prayed for our well-being, which we find precious.
Do you have a family motto?
Our family motto could be summed up as "girl's power."
How would you describe your teenage years?
During my teenage years, I was into fashion and dancing, particularly a dance called Parapara with Eurobeat music. I also used to teach my sister some dance moves. She, on the other hand, was heavily into sports, especially basketball.
What do you admire most about each other?
I admire Yuka's creativity, her free spirit, and her ability to live in her own world. She inspires me with her passion and unique approach to life. She always shares special moments with me, and that's really special.
What qualities are important to you when it comes to the next generation of Mizuhara girls?
We want to bring more physical touch and affection into our culture. While it's not very common in Japanese culture, we've started hugging each other more, and we believe physical touch is essential for connection.
