Last Updated: July 3, 2019 11:30AM

Name: Rei Morikawa


Hometown/Lionbridge Office:

Tokyo, Japan


Job Title:

Marketing Associate


How long have you been at Lionbridge?

10 months


What does a typical work day look like for you?

Copywriting for Lionbridge AI and Gengo.com websites, managing social media accounts for Lionbridge AI and Gengo, and Japanese PR and online ads.


What is your favorite place in your office?

It might be an unpopular opinion, but I like working at my desk—it has everything I need and I enjoy the open office.


What is the best part of your job?

When I can meet interesting people, and when our blog and social media posts go viral.


Fill in the blanks:


I speak 2 languages (list them!)

English and Japanese.


My favorite local saying is ______, [and it means ______, if not English].

嘘つきは泥棒のはじまり which means, “telling a lie is the beginning of being a thief.” The underlying meaning is because you’d start to lose your conscience.


A tourist visiting my city shouldn’t miss…

If you’re visiting Tokyo, you should also take a half-day or day trip to Yokohama—it’s my hometown, less than an hour away on the train.


My coworkers would say my weirdest habit is…

Hmmm I’m not sure, maybe that I’m always cold and I use blankets in the office. Someone gave me a cute blanket for a Secret Santa present last year, but I still don’t know who. 🙂


Outside of work, I always make time for…

My friends and family, and recently I’ve been visiting a lot of art galleries in Tokyo.


The best piece of career advice I’ve ever received is…

Continue learning and developing new skills.


My hidden talent is…

I can play the koto, a traditional Japanese string instrument.

Rei playing the koto
Rei playing the koto

A good cup of bubble tea makes me roar.
