Join Couchsurfing to see Mihoko’s full profile.
I love to meet people from all over the globe. I love traveling, hiking, camping, watching good movies, listening to good music, and enjoying good conversations with interesting people :)
I also love wine and sake. A good bottle of wine/sake and a good conversation; what could be better in life? I also regularly pracetice yoga and meditation for self-development.
I am working as a project formulation agent at an international aid agency in Burundi from June 2022 and will be here until 2024.
Looking forward to new adventures in a new chapter of my life and hosting world travellers there :) Looking forward to meeting you!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because I love meeting nice, open-minded people who love traveling :)
Traveling around the world, meeting interesting people and making the best out of this short life that I only live once :) I also love yoga and meditation to have some inner peace, calmness and universal love in my life. Cats are also my weak spot ;)
Music, Movies, and Books
Favorite Music: Hatoa by Bonobo, Peacock Tail by Boards of Canada, JLTF by Moby, Relaxin' with Cherry by Kid Loco, Jose Gonzales/Junip, Chat Faker, jazz, Mozart, etc., but I listen to so many other types of music too :)
Favorite Movie: Motorcycle Diaries, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Lord of the Ring Trilogy, Ghibli films and many more!
Favorite Books: Kilomètre Zéro by Maud Ankaoua, Works by Toni Morrison, Haruki Murakami, Khaled Hosseini, etc. Love great books! I also read manga :)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Traveled almost 1,000km in the sub-Saharan desert in Senegal with a compass on a small motorcycle (Yamaha AG125) when I lived there as a community development agent for two years in a small town among Peul/Fulani nomads and semi-nomads.
Walked about 1,300km on the 88-Temple Buddhist pilgrimage path with a tent in Shikoku, Japan.
2,000-km motorcycle tour in France and another motorcycle tour in Turkey and the Balkan Peninsula all the way to back to France :)
Teach, Learn, Share
When I have a guest in my home country, I usually like to take them around to sites off-the-beaten paths and enjoy some time with them when I have time.
I can also teach some Japanese, and if the guests are interested in learning Japanese vegetarian/vegan (Sho-jin) cooking, I can teach them that, too :)
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can teach any language I can speak or Japanese/French cuisine if they are intersted. I can teach them how wo prepare shojin (Japanese Buddhist vegan cuisine), too!
