About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Protect my tail? This world is not so friendly to hamsters...

ABOUT ME

A Japanese professional Hompire (mixed blood of hamster and vampire) doing the wheel in Tokyo. His mission is to keep his tail civilized, while catering him responsibly so he doesn't run away...

Here goes more general introduction. Born and grew up in Japan, but went to high school and college in the US, and also lived in Russia for several months during my school years.

I currently work at an international accounting firm and due to the fact that Japanese labor law sucks my weekday schedules are very unpredictable. So if you'd like to do something with me I can probably do that only on weekends.

PHILOSOPHY

I go back and forth between the two worlds. When the sun is awake, I'm enjoying a role called 'business man', but in my little house I'm still just a hamster wanting to believe in all the good things in the world.

I like this Chinese saying very much.

"Once Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn't know he was Zhuangzi. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi. But he didn't know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi. Between Zhuangzi and a butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things." - Zhuangzi

Interests

I enjoy arts in general...performing a dance piece, reading and writing stories, and listening to good melodies which do not get old. I also enjoy outdoor activities and backpacking.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Things called Ambient/Neo-classical(Akira Kosemura, Yasushi Yoshida, Max Richter, Dustin O'Halloran, Ryan Teague, etc.), but I'm really open to anything.

Books: That's secret, of course.

Movies: Recently I'm trying to collect old Soviet movies.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I watched sun-rise at the top of Mt. Fuji with a CouchSurfing friend. It was a good journey.
