About Me

I feel I am an open-minded person, well I am working at being more open to others view points and cultures.

Attention to future surfers, Here are the principles:

- Please read my profile and references before contacting me so you have an idea about who I am and what I stand for.

- When writing a request to stay with me, please answer the questions indicated in the profile below(Why I’m On Couchsurfing)😃👍🏼

My place is in the north side of Tokyo. By subway, My place is 20 minutes away from the downtown core of Tokyo.( Nearest JR St. is Sugamo)
(The full address will be given after the arrangements are confirmed)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm interested in meeting people who are open minded. Everyone is entitle to their own opinions. At times during a conversation, a person may be tempted to immediately judge someone else based on what is said which may be different then her/his own perspectives/viewpoints.
However, this is sort of assuming or pre-judging someone based on what is heard which may lead to misunderstandings. I aware that to be an open-minded person it requires to listen with empathy and to be non-judgmental. I want to be a open-minded person so I am working on it plus becoming a good listener. Also, I want to talk with a person who self-aware.I think that there is power in knowing who you are and what you stand for.
Lastly, I want to have stimulating conversations with an intellectual person. My definition of smart or intelligent is not a person who has a good memory or great grades in school. As long a person makes good decisions, plans ahead, learns from their mistakes and can reason they are smart. That's why I'm on Couchsurfing.

To potential guests ;
If you're sending a specific Couch Requests rather than an Open Couch Request be sure to make it specific to that host and thought out. Cut-and-paste Couch Requests don't impress many people. There are a lot of ways to personalize your request, but remember that the first step is to read every potential host's profile thoroughly.
I know it takes time but it’s worthy I think. So let your request personal. I’m sure there are some reasons you've chosen me of a future host, so let me know!
When asking to stay with me(if you read this), plz start your letters with “Hello Green Moon!!” plz answer these questions and I will answer your request sincerly.

1. plz tell me what is your favorite food and color. (Mine is beef and green) Add If you have any food allergies or dislikes, let me informed.
2. plz let me know your itinery.( especially the first day and last day) while in Tokyo such as clear and specific informations about it. For example, your length of stay (dates), places you want to visit, activities you want to do. Afterward, we can adjust when & where we shall meet at first and plan hangout together( if you want to ).
If they are (Tokyo trip’s plans) not fixed yet, plz let me informed what dates will you come to Tokyo and leave because If I cannot accept your request, I can suggest another dates. ( That's why sending a message is better than requesting me of stay to adjust dates.)
3. Do you take a shower before going to bed? If not, will you take a shower before sleeping at special situation? ( I refuse to go to sleep without showering first. It doesn’t matter if I already showered in the morning. Cause I don’t like the idea of climbing into bed covered in the dirt and grime of the day. So I want to accept guests who think like me about this question. And standing under the water at night might have valuable sleep benefits also)

Ps)  If you're traveling with friends, plz link to their Couchsurfing profile. If they don’t have it, introduce them to Let them make Couchsurfing members account.

; Thank you so much for reading this.
