Imada learnt Japanese traditional art techniques in Japan and has been using them in her own art works. She specializes in teaching Japanese woodblock printmaking, papermaking, folded screen making, and hanging scroll making and established a Japanese woodblock printmaking course at the British Museum in 2001. She has been teaching regularly at their Schools & Young Audiences Education Service.

In 2008, she was invited to teach Japanese Woodblock Printmaking at the Chester Beatty Library, Dublin and goes back to teach there every year.
