About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live with curiosity. Enjoy the life. Be active CSr as my hosts!

ABOUT ME I've been picky about guests these days so please write in your message about what is your favorite to do and what you can share with me. Otherwise maybe I can't find how wonderful to have you at my place!! My favorite is cooking, dancing, language exchange (French/Italian/Spanish) ;)

I usually don't accept stay longer than a week. If you want to stay more than 6 nights, I may ask you to share my room rent for by week. it means ¥5,000/week.

I just started my blog about Couch Surfing. ↓Check it! http://cs-okinawa.blogspot.jp

Most of my foreign friends says I'm not like THE JAPANESE at all.(I hope its means something good ;) I can't say so much about my self... but probably, pretty Easy-going and Open-minded maybe Funny as my references.

I like meet new people, make party, food(cook and eat), dance, sing, go to adventure and discover new things.

I'm interested in own Japanese culture as I interested in othor countly's. So, I love to study about Japanese ideology, especialy "Tea ceremony" "Zen" "Shinto".

I also interested in environmental protection and natural lifestyle.

I'm working as a massage therapist for 7 years. Aroma oil massage, reflexology, SHIATSU massage and Thai style massage I can do.

PHILOSOPHY

"Fortune comes in by a merry gate" Smilling... its the most Peaceful Charming Magical force :) "I'm flexible" Its one of my good JAPANESE sense. I don't change my philosophy but can be "flexible" to suits the culture.
