About Me

Hello ^^. Thanks for stopping by! I'll reply as soon as I can.

I'm Jin or you can also call me Jay^^
It is a great pleasure to meet you (´• ω •`)ノ

I am born in Japan but learned English in USA. I'm Filipino and Japanese. I love all three sides of my culture! I have traveled all over the place. I used to work in medicine, but now I own an organic farm, some restaurants, and a few other kinds of things.

In this covid time I own a face mask factory; and also sell gloves, thermometers, ventilator machines, and every other product related to helping all people in the world for this deadly problem. If anyone needs supplies; I can see what I can do^^

Additionally I breakdance and have been working as a corporate model for about 10 years. I also love to do professional racing and stunt driving for the entertainment industry whenever possible.

20 things about me:

Most people who meet me for the first time say that they feel like they've known me for a long time.

I've actually never met a stranger

I'm an honest, respectful, and great listener ...but also amazing at conversation.

Been traveling for awhile and still have much to absorb and share in the world. I am like a sponge!

I'm definitely a person who dreams out loud.
I've had a tough and also fortunate life thus far.
I am currently trying to rediscover my original laughter.

A great philosopher ...when intoxicated.

Most of the time I'm a genuine and experienced traveler NOT a tourist or foodie.

I am EXTREMELY lucky when it comes to winning items, challenges, or dodging death.

Due to above^ I am an EXTREMELY generous person.

A dreamer who has a reality that is just as good.

I like meeting new people. Everyday I try to have a full conversation with a stranger.

I make it a point to ALWAYS do something NEW every single day! Meeting people definitely fills that requirement.

I'm in a constant search for smiles

I have a lot of energy and can eat more than an elephant. ( ´ ▽ ` )

I don't follow the rules of life. I rewrite them. The career as a culture phenomenon is not for me.

I'm pretty laid back but work hard as well.

I am blessed to have experienced what life is like to be on both the bottom and top echelons of society.

I am organic, natural, sustainable, fresh, and all the other trendy words people seem to like these days.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is a great way to bring people out of their comfort zone. You can meet so many people that you wouldn't be able to regularly.

I'm on here to view the world from different perspectives.
Also I think that staying in a regular hotel is OK, but where's the fun in that?

You can always gain something by sharing moments and ideas with others while traveling so why not do it!?


Talking to strangers o( ❛ᴗ❛ )o and also animals

Traveling aimlessly
at anytime

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Can you really pick just one!?!? The adventure ALWAYS continues...

Spent 1 month in complete silence with monks at a mountain temple

I have saved a human life more than once

I have planted a tree for every year I've been born

Swam with whale sharks off the west coast of Australia

Skydived on 6 continents and have visited all 7 on this beautiful Earth we share.

I've traveled on foot from one side of USA to the other and also from the West side of Europe to the East.

Teach, Learn, Share

Besides the standard "cooking food" or "teach a language" I can offer:

Crazy times and Laughter. One of the best calorie burners (^_ ^)

I can show you how to make the greatest cocktails.

I can teach you how to expertly drive a car or most things with wheels.

I can also share with you how to run a wide variety of businesses successfully while still being happy. I own quite a few different kinds.

If you care about things like this; I can teach you how to make enough money to pay for most things in this world. (Hopefully you will use that skill for good)

Also I can show you how to dance!

What I Can Share with Hosts

An amazing conversation and my unique energy!!

I have many stories to share. ^_^

I have traveled and worked in so many different areas that I can usually have an intuitive conversation with almost anyone.

I can show you how to have a great amount of financial, mental, and physical success in life.

Also if you're ever in the States let me know! You will have the best home and adventure with me. ^_^
