Hailing from Tokyo, Erochica Bamboo began her career as a teenager in 1984 performing at nightclubs and cabaret shows in Japan. She danced in small villages to big cities for audiences including the Japanese Royal family.

In 2001 Erochica Bamboo became an international burlesque performer and by 2003 she was crowned Miss Exotic World. The Burlesque Hall of Fame creator Dixie Evans then gave her the tagline, ‘Tokyo Tornado’.
