About Me

I am Japanese and am living in Groningen in the Netherlands currently. I am a PhD student doing researches about neurobiology in University of Groningen. I am an open-minded, easy-going person, and I always like to meet new people to share experiences :) I like cooking, and it would be possible to cook Japanese food together.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I travel somewhere, I prefer meeting people who are there and talking/experiencing their lives there to just visiting some touristic places. Nicer and cheaper :)


I do like sports/exercises. I do climbing or bouldering sometimes. In Groningen there is the highest climbing tower in Europe, which is 37 meters high. But still I have never tried climbing outside, so that is on my ToDo list. I like nature, so I sometimes go camping by myself, or just make a small campfire in my neighborhood.

Recently I started to play guitar (still beginner tho, almost two years) so I am more into music now :)
