About Me


Make new friends


I'm Japanese and had lived in Tokyo for more than 10 years. I know a lot of things about Tokyo.
I had studied in San Diego in California for one year and three months and worked in Amsterdam for a year.
I came back to Japan at the end of last year.
I enjoyed life in the US and Europe and travelled a lot.


Never repeat the same mistakes.


I have visited more than 25 countries.
I'm interested in everything; culture, nature, heritage, art , history , people, food, and so on,

I have been to stadium to see Baseball, American football, and Basket ball in the US.
I like Chargers and Padres because I used to live in San Diego.

I have been to stadium to see soccer football in Europe.
My favorite team is Arsenal because the manager Wenger used to the manager of the team in my hometown in Japan.

I went to Paris to see the final stage of Tour de France and went to LA to see Lakers game, and so on.

-Musical & Opera
I have seen a lot of musical in NY and London and opera in Vienna.
My favorites are Evita and Phantom of the Opera. Mamma Mia is also good.

-Eating & Drinking
When I travel, I always try local foods and drinks.
I like meat, fish, vegetable fruit..., everything!
I love sweets, too; chocolate, cake, ice cream...
I'm always looking for delicious foods!
