In 1989 she realized her dream and opened up an Export-Import business based in the USA, making good use of her family's network in Japan. As the influence of the internet grew, she knew she had to 'get on board', so in 1998 the website was created and she brought her brother on board to run the Japan office. That was the year that "Yoko Trading" became www.yokodana.com ( now also known as, YokoDana Kimono) . Having staff in Japan and the USA --family at that -- most often eliminates the usual 'middle-men', so thus she can offer many unique & high-quality items at most reasonable prices.
In addition to the website devoted to the sale of bulk kimono by the pound and special Japanese vintage kimono fabric, over the years Yoko had shown at a variety of trade shows, festivals, and conventions; unfortunately she no longer does them since COVID arrived in 2020; for years we had venues at cultural fairs such as the Cherry Blossom Festivals in Washington DC, Philadelphia & Brooklyn, New York.
