The flags of the three countries, Japan, Austria and Peru can be seen in the outer frame. The symbol in the middle means"Heart" in Japanese ("Kokoro"). The"yeah" stands for Joana. That's why my passion is called"Jokokoro".


Joana Toshimi

I was born in Lima, Peru to Japanese parents.


I emigrated to Japan when I was seventeen. I lived in Tokyo for eight years until I fell in love with Austria.


My mother is an excellent cook, from her I got my enthusiasm and passion for cooking. With Jokokoro I turned my hobby as a traveling cook into a job. 


My motto in life: "Never give up, follow your heart and always with a big smile on your face"
