About Me

MADE IN JAPAN quality host who keeps
Refer to my surfers comments, some of them wrote descriptive sentences.

Also up for "want to meet up"

Live alone in my very COMFORTABLE condominium in Tokyo, located near center of the city such as 15 min to Shibuya, Harajuku, 20 min to Shinjuku, Tokyo tower by trains.
Some of my surfers' comments are as follows;
"house is really comfortable. 100% recommended", "very clean house", "nice and clean home", "perfect to explore this huge metropolis"

* Actually, I moved to brand new higher grade condominium which was built in 2020, and better convenient access (JUST in front of a train station, ZERO min walk) in the same town, look at new photos while trusting my surfers' comments.
* References from my surfers regarding my home before 2020 are to my former home.

Work for global brand MULTI-NATIONAL company (you can see my photos with a lot of colleagues from many countries).
Familiar with DIVERSE culture and like CROSS-CULTURAL communication.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Coincidentally hosted an European girl before I joined Counchsurfing.
She said,

"You have been an amazing host, I will never forget your kindness and here are no words to express how grateful I am for everything you have done for me!"

in a letter she gave me after my hosting (you can see it on my profile photos) because I not only provided enough space, local information and food with her but also took her to nice restaurants and sightseeing places.
She let me know Couchsurfing.
