Mieko Photography

Mieko Horikoshi
(808) 870-1797
I am a bilingual (English – Japanese) professional commercial photographer. I expanded my business to web design, social media account management, and translation services.

My approach is unique compare to traditional web designers’. I use online website builders, such as Wix, to create custom websites. If you prefer to build your website on another online platform, I will learn it and design it for you. My web design service includes a coaching session on how to make updates to your website. In this way, you gain total flexibility and control of your online business appearance in the future. I can do live designing sessions on Zoom. Currently, I am fluent in Wix, Weebly, and Word Press.

I can also manage your social media accounts in Japanese. I have worked closely with Hawaii and the Japanese travel industry since 1995, photographed numerous magazine articles about Hawaii with Japanese publishers, and understand the trends.

In my Translation service, I translate your writing into Japanese in the best way to convey your message to Japanese customers. AI translators are coming close to articulation; however, they are yet to understand emotions. Sales are emotions. Without emotions, it is harder to sell. I am here to translate the emotions.

When you choose to work with me, You will receive a complete PR service. I can photograph or film your business, design your website, sprinkle SEO in Japanese, and manage your Japanese social media accounts.

I look forward to working with you.
