About Me


To see as much of the world during this lifetime!


I'm currently a university student studying in Tokyo. One of my (admittedly many) interests is traveling, and I think couch surfing is quite a stroke of genius.  I believe that couch surfing isn't just about providing a free bed and a hot shower - it's all about the opportunity to meet new people from all over the world.


Enjoy life to the fullest - after all, you only get one chance, isn't it?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I haven't had any opportunities to couch surf, but I have stayed at youth hostels a number of times and loved the experience of meeting new people. I hope to try couch surfing this summer, but till then I'm more than happy to host!


Road cycling, photography, eating good food, traveling.
