About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To make more friends all over the world!

ABOUT ME
First I only host ONE WOMAN at a time. Please respect.

Hi! It's very nice to meet you here. I have lived in Kawasaki since 2007. I am originally from Nagoya, central Japan. I am friendly, open minded and want learn different culture. I like to show around Tokyo, Yokohama area and introduce and share a part of Japanese culture.
My life has been international last 15 years. I studied at an international university in Nagoya. I made a lot of international friends and we exchanged language learning. After university, I joined international organization called Up with People, traveled the United States and Scandinavian countries with 150 people from 23 different countries. (I made more friends.) and then I backpacked western Europe for 1.5 months. (it was the year 2000 and 2001)
I like to travel and visit friends all over the world on my holidays and also have them at my place. (So far, I visited about 20 countries to see friends and about 20 people came to my parents' home.)

PHILOSOPHY

The only way to change the future is to change the present, whatever you are doing now is creating your future.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I met very cool people here. It works really well for me so far.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted some people through CS. All the experiences were quite nice and enjoyable. CS also helped me to find nice friends and made my life more international again.
Though without CS, I have visited many friends all over the world and also had guests from all over. (I have my own network.)

Interests

I like to travel aborad(if I have longer vacation).
My hobby is dancing salsa at the moment and try to dance at least twice a week. I do like to meet people and share stories. Food is also my big interest. I love to cook and have a party at my place. I also like to try differnt types of food and find nice good restaurants.

Music, Movies & Books

As I like to dance salsa, I listen to Latin Music but basically enjoy most of music. (except heavy metal)
I love Harry Potter and other fantasy novel. One day I have a chance to visit England again, I would like to see all the sites related with Harry. (too bad the last time I was in England, I did not know Harry.)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

To travel with international group called Up with People for 6 months and staying over 30 different host families!
To visit Uluru (Ayres Rock), Australia.
To attend my Spanish penpal's wedding after 15 years correspodence. (I attended Chinese and German wedding either.)
