 After returning from Mexico to Japan, she studied at the art school

 in Tokyo  called 'Bunka Gakuin', where some world famous writers

 such as Yasunari  Kawabata and Shusaku Endo had taught. 

 

 Then, she entered  the renowned Sophia University  in Tokyo, 

 where she graduated  with a  bachelor’s degree in philosophy.

 

  She started singing tango with the Japanese tango orquestra

 'Astrorico' in  1996  and  continued performing with them and

  also with another tango  group 'Machiko Komatsu & Tango Cristal'.

 

 She lived in  Buenos Aires between 2002 and 2008, and  

 studied under  Amelita Baltar, Guillermo Fernandez, Patricia Andrade,

 many different countries. 

 

 Together with Ryota Komatsu Unit, she has participated in

 Piazzolla's one  of the greatest works, 'Maria de Buenos Aires',

 playing  the  role of Maria,  since 2013. 

 

 Currently, Sayaca lives in Tokyo and keeps singing in her own original style
