About Me

Sorry for not responding properly recently, university has been overwhelming these days but spring holiday will start in February so I'm back!

Hi everyone, my name is Ricky, I grew up in Russia but I've been living in Japan for three years now. I love hitchhiking, adventures, and also skateboarding and street art. I practice tattoos when I have a partner for practice. Other than that, I really like hitchhiking and that's basically why I'm here! I hope to get along with many many people from many many different places.
PLEASE NOTICE! If you're thinking about staying at my house, I live in Kitakyushu city, NOT Fukuoka city!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a student who likes travelling. Of course it's a little bit tough for me to travel financially, but aside from that, I'm drawn to the idea of CS because I think people all over the world should help each other more. I'd like to make the connections in the community of travellers stronger and to exchange cultures.


Skateboard is a big part of my life - I take it with me on almost every journey (yet I still managed to not get good at it lol). I started it 1 year ago, so back in Russia I didn't skate and I regret it.
I practice tattoos - I've been enjoying drawing my whole life and tattoos turned out to be a great way for me to bring joy to people with my art.
Also I like hitchhiking a lot - for me, it is much more than getting from point A to point B. I could go on about the unpredictability, adventures, but I'll make it up to you to ask if you're curious 🌈

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
