About Me


Gain an understanding of the world and live life


I try to experience as many things as I can while learning and living life in the process


better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times over

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


my participation has been limited but now that I'm in another area that I'm unfamiliar with I'm looking to change that!


I have made many friends all over northern japan and surfed many couches of people I now consider close friends.


All types of music, meeting people from all over the world, all kinds of festivals, having a good time, experiencing new things, and relaxing in the wild, laughing, really anything at all...
