    That's about right. She's raising awareness about traffic accident fatalities (it's highest in Aichi Prefecture) and remittance fraud with the Kohoku Police.

    The first English sentence may raise some eyebrows though.
    Go Miki!

    I don't know what this says, but I hope it says that Miki just signed a billion yen contract with Nike.

    Thanks calica!

    She seems really devoted to her daughter
    And I totally agree, the child should be allowed to do what she wants, instead of having the parent's will imposed on her.
    (Although Miki's daughter might have the gene to be a superb jumper)

    I thought this was a very interesting, heartfelt interview.

    Miki is honest about her life and gives some goods insights that go beyond the usual:
