Thank you for visiting this website.
I am Rika Matsuoka.
Nice to meet you.
So, first of all,
I would like to introduce myself. Let’s go!
I was born in Ise City, Mie Prefecture, Japan.
We moved to Nara Prefecture when I was around 3 or 4 years old due to my family circumstances. Currently, I am active in music biz in Tokyo.
However, I still go back to Mie every now and then.
My most favorite place is Ise-Jingu Shrine.
My birthday is actually same as Leonardo da Vinci’s.
It’s April 15 ! Haha.
I can’t say I’m so smart.
And my memory is poor, I’m afraid.
But I have survived with the help of my family, friends, and everyone.
I have a keen sense of catching happiness. I always feel great appreciation.
Singing songs, playing the flute, etc…
I usually put something out with music.
That’s what I live by.
Kiki Kirin is my favorite actress.
Impressionist painters are especially my favorite.
I also include some painters in my lyrics, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Pablo Picasso.
I admire their way of life. I used to have three cats.
■Taking a walk
I like watching clouds in the sky while I take a walk.
It makes me feel beautiful four seasons in Japan.
Well, it’s better to stop telling my favorite things because I still have many.
You will find out what I love through this website or my YouTube program, anyway. LOL.
The reason why I launched this website
My music career will reach its 20 anniversary in April, 2022.
At the same time, I will be 40 years old!
I started to look back on my life with making a chronology in 2019.
Oh, I’m still 38 now, by the way!
Anyway, I started to make my bucket list.
Listing up things what I want to do by the end of my life.
Now, the world is suffered by Covid-19.
We are struggling under the threat of losing not only our mind but also our life without any prospect of being settled.
Now is the time to rethink how mankind can coexist with the earth under the circumstance.
Human is really mysterious.
I find it’s true even in myself.
Good day or bad day,
Those days make me realize various feelings deep in my mind.
Sometimes, I almost fall into despair.
One of my neighbor tried to commit a suicide quite recently.
Ambulance, fire truck, and police car came together. It made me so nervous.
Someone who I care a lot was about to lose his/her meaning of life.
Another one was crying.
These incidents were really shocking. And my feelings were beyond description. But I don’t want to forget them all.
However, aside from corona virus,
we can find miracles of “being alive” every single day.
I found my word “To die with smile” in the bucket list.
And it statled me.
So I made up my mind
to live with all my strength to fulfill my wish
rather than struggling to pay rent
or being dissatisfied with current situation.
“I enjoy full of my life as a human being.“
I will enjoy my true emotions,
eat delicious foods,
see beautiful sceneries,
and find loved one.
I will collect feelings of “I like”.
In the great nature,
people feel the earth
and live their life seriously,
and I want to touch their hearts.
And first of all, I want to know and love Mie
where is my birth place.
I’ve been making my life chronicle
and then I realized that I was born in such a wonderful place.
It made me excited.
I’d like to learn more about Mie
like you try to discover good points of your significant other.
That is why I decided to start this project.
How to paint a picture for the future
Something I like will be definitely connected to someone else’s likes.
So, it is much appreciated if my emotions of excitement or love
make you also excited especially through our program “Exploring Deep Mie with Rika!”.
it is appreciated if it motivates you to live to see another day.
And it is also appreciated if it is a trigger for you to love your life.
How do you live your future?
but other gods had a cheerful party with dances and songs to draw Her from the cave,
so She emerged from there and the light was back in the world.
It’s the same way, I’d like to pursue and send out pleasant things.
But it’s not possible for me alone to make things fun.
So, I need your help.
Round Sun. Connection between people. Ripple.
“Keep on connecting eternally = Circle”
Our logo mark implies this theme.
I will be happy if
we can shine light into this website,
and your life.
April, The Year 2022.
My music career will have 20 year anniversary.
If I continue my activity until then, I want to have my solo concert with orchestra in Tokyo.
It will be honored for me to express our joy of life through my music in my birth place Mie, or Nara where I grew up, or your hometown.
If you are
crying and hiding from the light,
I would like to bring you out from the darkness.
Let’s start collecting lovable things!
Lovable “Exploring Deep Mie with Rika!”.
