About Me

Open minded for everyone. Interesting in different lifestyle and thinking. Love talking about movie, football and traveling. Cooking Japanese food, not the luxury one like Sushi and Templa, but traditional and basic one like Japanese rice, Miso soup and surly Takoyaki.


To present my lovely, beautiful, wonderful and amazing country, JAPAN


Smile makes you happy and be loved.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS is one of the best site to meet many different, attractive, friendly and real people.
It is so powerful and amazing to share the opinion, policy, idea, religion, culture, just like world's mobile library.

By hosting, exchange culture, tradition and own experience, give good impression of my country, JAPAN.
By surfing, amaze special and local places, activities and people. By all, be a good friend for all the time of life.


I concrete my Hosting concept with the help of many lovely surfers.
