Sachiaki Takamiya is the founder of the Ikigai Diet and Ikigai Bio-Hacking. He developed these two health methods based on centenarians in Japanese blue zones and Shizenha people, Japanese naturalists who live in the countryside leading organic lifestyles. He won the outstanding performance award of the Next Publishing Award in March 2022 with the book, The Ikigai Diet.

In his early 20s, he lived in England, where he studied Shiatsu and macrobiotics at the British School of Shiatsu, studied different kinds of psychotherapies at the Center for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, and at the School of Hypnosis and Advanced Psychotherapy.

After returning to Japan, he gave workshops on holistic transformation based on his studies of both physical and psychological approaches.

He now lives in a small rural town called Hino town in Shiga Prefecture, one of Japan's longest-lived prefectures. He practices a Satoyama lifestyle there, growing vegetables and making fermented foods. Although he is 60 years old, he has had no problems at medical check-ups so far, and he was diagnosed that his vascular age was 21 years younger.
