About Me


Teach and share Japanese food and learn local mother's food
I would like to travel around South America by camper-van with my bf.


Hi everyone, my name is Naoko from Japan.
Japan has 4 seasons and you will find its beauty in each seasons. I did a road trip across Japan and also went trekking all over. I highly recommend you to travel the countryside of Japan!

I feel like I find the small world in this small island, but also I want to see the world with my eyes.

I am always keen to know each one of country's history, culture, art, myth, food, tradition, the way of living, belief and respect it.
It must be hard to understand everything, but I believe
it is important to understand our difference and accept
it and learn from it.


Any experience have a meaning, nothing is waste.
Live as if you are born in the morning and die at night.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently, I live in Japan and planning to travel around the world to visit my friends in my past and making new friends all over the world...

It is my dream to share the happiness of the time when we have a meal together.... I am willing to cook and teach any types of Japanese and Asian food.

I am very keen to learn each country's cuisine. It would be great if you can teach me your home made food, we can cook together!


no, I reaaly wish but I have not done it before!


cooking, reading, living in nature, cultivate my animal instinct (lol), farming , chilling out on the beach, reading watching movies, beach volleyball, ping pong, trekking, swimming and eating!
