About Me

(Not Tokyo, please read my profile before asking to stay at my place in Tokyo haha)

I'm currently travelling in Europe so sorry I won't have a chance to reply to messages about meeting up in Tokyo!


I've been living in Tokyo about 3 years now, working as an English teacher. I am very open to meeting up with travellers/locals, or possibly hosting depending on the day.


Explore as much of Asia as possible


Friendly, fun, always up for new experiences and meeting new, like-minded people!
