About Me


Visit the world!


Currently an Assistant English Teacher in a Junior High in Gifu city, i also help with music and various other tasks at school.

I am a photographer and very interested in Music and Theater specifically Japanese Noh and Kyogen theater,

I drink and smoke, and i enjoy traveling.

My apartment is a bit far from the city center but if you enjoy the countryside then my apartment is perfect for you.


Live life to the fullest, dont hold back. Do what you go to do in life, but always have time to sit and watch the crowds roll by.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to show temples and shrines to tourists. As a Japanese Culture Scholar I can teach alot about the places and give alot of cultural lessons, but it depends on the day. Also i can host a person.
