About Me

43 year old English guy who was living in Kobe, Japan for 8 years. Decided to leave Japan and return to the UK but with a slight detour to Ishigaki. But my accommodation plans have gone wrong so looking for a Couchsurfing here.

I was an English Conversation teacher in Kobe. Friendly and talkative. You can ask me anything.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hi Guys and Gals

I am currently staying in Ishigaki at the moment, but I have to move out of my friends apartment soon. I left Kobe to come to Ishigaki as I wanted to spend a few months here before I return to the UK in the spring.

It isn't a good idea to go back to the UK now because of the Covid 19 situation, but I hope that it will be better by spring next year.

Anyway, I'm hoping to find a new place on this website. Thanks very much and have a good day !
