About Me


I'm from Gifu, it's a small town of Japan, I've studied in Tokyo for 4 years and 1 year in Portugal. Now I live in Nagoya, the 3rd biggest city in Japan.

I've studied portugese language and fine-arts in Portugal in 2010. I love Portugal, the people there and their spirit.
I like talking to new people, visiting places where I've not been. I'm always interested in many things around me. Even if I'm not a good English speaker, I'm fond of communicating with foreign people :) Recently I like trecking, mountaineering, and running. I've already done marathon 5 times..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I feel like every time that I do CS, meet new people and talk to them, my horizons are getting broadening.


I like taking pictures and sometimes drawing, knowing how the people live around the world, learning other languages. Sometimes I also run, it's quite nice way to relax.
