-Voiceover Studio and Localization Company, CEO, Hungary

Very clear and soothing voice with high skills are at the top of performance-rating skill.
Reiko welcomes new ideas and puts high value on doing a good job.
Always cheerful about upcoming projects and very reliable when it comes to time management.

-Sleep and Meditation App Development Studio, Japanese Content Manager, Canada

Reiko is frequently chosen as our PR person for local-government-sponsored public awareness campaigns. Messages aimed at the public, such as 'cancer screening awareness' and 'preventative measures for marine debris,' often tend to be overly formal. However, Reiko’s performance is perfect for crafting emotionally engaging and relatable expressions. It might be her exceptional understanding of project goals, or perhaps it's how she applies her own background and knowledge to amplify the audience's sympathy. She's impeccable and flawless, but personally, I adore her bubbly laughter that can liven up any room. Let's all become captivated by the intelligence and humor of Reiko Narao.

– Video Production, Company Editor, Japan

Reiko is not only tall and beautiful but also possesses great vocal qualities.

Reiko's Story

"Texture and nuance embedded in the voice —
I aspire to convey the essence of words with heartfelt emotions."
Living in America played a pivotal role in shaping her voice as it is today; it is influenced by the intriguing aspects of the Japanese language, its cultural background, and folk traditions.

Her senses developed in a village nestled amidst mountains in Tottori, Japan, where shrines and nature are central to daily life. Simultaneously, her childhood fascination with drawing beautiful Western dresses fueled her creativity and led her to embark on a journey to study special effects makeup in the US at the age of 19.

The process of "crafting creations" demanded realism from every angle for convincing effects. While living in the US, encounters with individuals from diverse backgrounds awakened her awareness of her own origins and authenticity.

Upon returning to Japan, a fortuitous opportunity led her to appear on a local TV program, prompting a re-entry into the entertainment industry from a different angle. Now, as the main presenter on the same program, she shares the allure of her local region through her words.

This journey of conveying the charm of a region she once observed from afar kindled her interest in the "details embedded in the voice," leading her into the world of voiceovers. With professional trainings, she now offers her voice in both Japanese and English globally. She is also affiliated with Psychoro Inc., a company engaged in mental health care initiatives, where she utilizes her skills to foster community connections.

Just as she used texture and shading in clay sculptures to create realism, she uses the texture and nuance of her voice to bring written words to life. This commitment translates into a profound comprehension of projects and an unwavering dedication to conveying words with the utmost care.
