She also appeared as Miyagi's love interest in\n  <i>\n   The Karate Kid, Part II\n  </i>\n  in 1986 and in the 1988 film version of\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Philip_Kan_Gotanda/\" title=\"Philip Kan Gotanda\">\n   Philip Kan Gotanda\n  </a>\n  's\n  <i>\n   The Wash\n  </i>\n  .\n </p>\n <p>\n  In 1989, she took over as artistic director of East West Players after founding artistic director\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Mako/\" title=\"Mako\">\n   Mako\n  </a>\n  's resignation, serving in that capacity until 1993. She remained active in the Japanese American community and continued with her acting career, while also teaching drama at California State University, Los Angeles and UCLA.
