When the promotion soon broke apart, she headed to JWP then made a brief trip to the US to compete for WCW. When she returned in 1991 she changed her ring name to Dynamite Kansai. She stayed in JWP until the mid-1990s, when she left to join GAEA Japan. Along the way she was in 3 5 Star Matches. In 2006, she followed old partner Ozaki to OZ Academy and has competed for them since. She is a former OZ Academy Openweight and Tag Team Champion.
Kansai joined the “Over The Hill Club” in December 2009, becoming one of many wrestlers in Japan who remain active in the ring as they turn 40. She’ll reach the 25-year milestone in August 2011.
