About Me


Leading happy life (^^)b


Optimistic and happy, vegitalian with a little bit of drinking.

Studied at State University of NY at StonyBrook so a kind of Americanized, free and open to new things, like to hang around with English speaking people for chat or knowledge exchange.

Easy going and open-minded business person who love to hang around with people who have different idea, thought and view points.


Feel the peace, see the beauty.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Free bilingual Tokyo Otaku tour guide, or chat in cafe for some Japanese knowledge of tradition, latest, history, otaku, anime, manga and so.

For Tokyo sightseeing, my recommendation to visit is as follows:

“Asakusa Sensoji“ old Buddhism temple village,
“Meiji shrine” the biggest Shinto shrine in central Tokyo (my neighber),
“Harajuku” youngsters fashion hub,
“Imperial palace” at the center of Tokyo,
“Ginza” brand shop street like 5th ave NY,
“Akihabara” sacred place for Anime and Otaku,
“Tsukiji fish market” opens only AM (better to go early morning weekday),
“Tokyo tower” old tower to broadcast raidowave 333m height,
"Skytree" new tower for broad casting 634m world highest (we can go upto 450m with lift, may wait 2hours in line) with shopping mall contains more than 300shops and restaurant,
“Hama rikyu” old tea ceremony Garden by Tokugawa in Edo era,
“Odaiba” beautiful seaside town like Sidney,
“Ueno American street” built immediately after WW2 with very Asian narrow and messy mixedup atomospher and lots of museum around there etc.

There are some good and reasonable Sushi (near to Tsukiji) and Sake (Japanese old style drinking bar), if you want I can introduce some.

Other than these, there are something like boat cruse or one day trip to Nikko (120km northern from Tokyo) for Ninja village amusement park.
