Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Have hosted with CS on and off for six years. Sometimes host, sometimes travel.

We have been wwoofing and helpx and workaway hosts as well (currently helpx and often our beds are taken up by helpers. We can take couchsurfers who want to be helpers for a short time (2 hours work a day for accom)...we are currently looking especially for:
Cleaning help/cooking help (especially someone who can cook healthy veg food)
Long termers moving to Japan are especially welcome to stay for a long time, on working holiday visas, even up to a year.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life is one amazing moment after another.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach about Japanese kimono.

Can tell you about the best way to meet real geisha (not cheap but probably for less than you could anywhere else, and it is one of the most amazing experiences you can have in Japan).

Can go hiking out of Tokyo on weekends.
