About Me

I'm originally from Japan, and currently doing master in Washington, DC. Before graduating next year, I will travel around US and enjoy meetings with new friends, places, and culture.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The reason is my curiosity to learn more about the United States. My goal is to interact with as many people in different places as possible, and understand how people in different states have different perspectives toward everything about US (politics, economics, culture, etc). Through this app, I want to deepen and broaden my perspectives toward the US by sharing my experiences with you.

Music, Movies, and Books

Big fun of Billy Joel! Going to his live is my another goal in US!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

After finishing my undergraduate education in the US, I became a government official of Japan and gained a lot of previous opportunities to meet new people. It drove me to study in US as a graduate student.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have learned Japanese and American politics, economics, history, and so on. So, I would be grateful if we can talk about anything we know about the US! It definitely deepen my understanding of the US!!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Since I'm originally from Japan, the far-east island surrounded by sea, I'm excited to share all of my experiences about Asia and Japan. Happy to share Japanese culture including manga, food, festivals, and martial arts. Since I have a black belt of Kendo, Japanese martial art swordsmanship, I'm familiar with Japanese tradition, Bushido and Buddhism.
