About Me


To put Fukui on the map


Living in Kyoto and working in travel, I'm looking forward to learning more and more about the world, and I especially enjoy finding the interesting stories hidden in any area (This American Life style!) If you're ever up for exploring the vast array of places and spaces Kyoto has to offer, give me a shout!


Always have a plan. Make intentions clear. Avoid confusion and misunderstandings.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to use my love of wandering and alright Japanese skills to really introduce new friends to all the neat stuff you can find within a stone's thrown anywhere in Japan. When I'm free, I like to take/join friends on day excursions to anywhere, try all the tasty things, and grab a cup of tea, coffee, or if you're talking about the evening, maybe a drink or two while listening to live music or watching whatever sport is most exciting at the time.


I've not couch surfed myself, but I do like to host when I can.
