Kaori began to play the piano at very early age. She studied classical music in Osaka and earned her degree at the University of Kobe in 2000. Years later, she went to New York and studied jazz with pianist Mike Leddone. Back to Japan, Kaori was recruited by famous Japanese pop singer as a personal manager and settled in tokyo. In 2011 she discovered tango. She found Hiroshi Iwasaki and learned from him piano and arrangements. She met Pablo Ziegler (who was Astor Piazzolla's pianist) for a master class and kept studying with him when he comes to Japan. In 2013 she went to Buenos Aires, Argentina for 5 months to improve skills with Hernan Possetti and to record the first CD at "ION estudio" under his direction. Kaori was later invited to play a concert for piano solo and duets with Eva Wolff at "Casa de Gardel". Before the departure to Japan, the tango magazine "La Milonga" interviewed her.
