About Me




After the goal of my long journey on foot from Tokyo to Saga, where my grandparents live in, I decided to continue this trip.
Now I’m on the way to Kagoshima.

I'm interested in the local culture, history and the people who lives in their place.
I prefere staying someone's house than a hotel, or rather, I like to know how they live in their house. It’s always different, and shows me a part of their story of life. That’s why I’m on CS.
I never forget anyone who I meet in a journey.

To explain about myself, I’m a quiet but curious person.
I like helping someone, but I’m always helped by someone. The people around me are always kind.
Although I have a few experience on CS, I used to stay with locals on Airbnb.

Though I am traveling only on foot, if you want to hang out with me, I’ll take a train. Please don’t hasitate to contact me even if you are bit far from me.

Hoping to see see you. Cheers ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A boy who I've taken care as my part time job at a nursery school since he was 1, is now in the first grade of an elementary school.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn : Language. I'm keen to lerning foreign languages, especially chinese, korean and arabic. If there's someone who speak those languages, I really want to meet. Of course, I'm also interested in any languages.
Learn : Coffee. Since I started to working at a coffee shop, I’ve been interested in coffee. If you can make a good coffee, I’ll be really interested in you.

Teach : Language. When I have a chance, I willing to teach Japanese. Though I am a quiet person, I can tell some language system of japanese by comparing other languages. I can tell some of my points of view.
Teach : Origami. Well, it’s a very typic skill to share with non japanese CSers, but me, I’m extremely skilled. That is to say, It’s not like just making cranes (the most typic origami). It needs some time (may be one hour or more), but I can show you my high skilled work of origami if you want.


What I Can Share with Hosts

If I have a chance, I’ll make some pancakes for you.
