I was invited to attend a study session conducted by the members of Pinterest Japan. I was actually really surprised when I received an invitation – although I do use Pinterest once in a while and have a widget on my blog, I don’t consider myself the most avid user. But since it is a useful tool in social media and blogging, I decided to see what I could learn from this study session. The community managers for Pinterest Japan, Yuka Yamaguchi and Ami Matsuzawa, were so sweet, and I enjoyed the lecture presentation by Yuka. I had recently upgraded my Pinterest account to a business one, but hadn’t really played around with it much since. She carefully explained the benefits of verifying your blog or website on your Pinterest account. Also, there is an analytics section on Pinterest, which might come in handy to check my page views and impressions.
It was a small group of bloggers and Pinners, but I enjoyed meeting every single person there. I was (finally) able to meet fellow blogger & illustrator Akiko Hiramatsu from Kimonosnack. She is on my left in the photo in a DVF dress. She is the sweetest lady! You can follow her on Pinterest here.
Yuka is also a blogger – check out her blog, Blossom Link. She has a wide variety of boards on her Pinterest account. Follow her on Pinterest here.
Pinterest Japan was created just about a year ago, so it’s not as popular in Japan yet. I hope more people in Japan learn about Pinterest – I’ve realized it’s a useful tool for business, and in my case, for blogging. My goal is to learn how to use Pinterest well with what I learned today!

What an amazing opportunity. I currently use Pinterest for personal use (ideas, travel, recipes) but my boyfriend recently converted it to a business one so we'll see how that will work! I'm sure you got valuable information out of it!
