About Me

I am a little bit shy man, but my wife is very outgoing woman. Our common point is we love people who travel with backpacks!
Could you make friends with us?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have traveled in India, Nepal, Thailand, Tibet and China as backpacker.
In these countries many people have given me lots of kindness.
So I thought NOW is my turn to give kindness to backpackers who visit Japan, Hokkaido and Sapporo.

And I want to open a guesthouse in the future. Couchsurfing is also a trial for that.
