About Me

So I realize I joined Couchsurfing back in 2012, but I never used it... It is 2019, and now I am filling out my profile...Though I have not been using the Couchsurfing, I have been traveling for business and took many family vacations.

I’m originally from Tokyo, Japan, and I’ve been in the United States almost 3 decades (makes me feel old...). Raised three kids, became an empty nester this year in 2019, and I am ready to travel and meet people.

Update: It’s 2021. I continue traveling, but I’m not accepting guests due to COVID. I am looking forward to some group activities with wonderful couchfurfers😃 Please be careful and stay healthy everyone🙏

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Now that kids are older, I finally have time for myself, and feeling more adventurous😊 I am ready to meet new people!!!


I like exercising, eating healthy, and enjoy life. Who knows? Maybe you can open my eyes to something new.

Music, Movies, and Books

I do everything but country. I still try to listen to it once in a while. Maybe one day I’ll get it. Prefer instrumental music like techno, house, jazz, classical.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hmmm I don't know. I can take a good care of myself? I wear a big girl pants :)
