About Me

I grew up in Japan (the south in Kyushu and also near Tokyo), then I moved to the US (I'm Japanese and American btw). I lived in Missouri, USA for a few years, and have been living in Brussels for a while. I have traveled quite a bit over the past three years, but I am looking to travel even more in the coming years because you can never travel enough. I am not looking to hit tourist sites or major places, but to experience daily life with the locals in places I travel. I can confidently say that I am a truly spontaneous person addicted to adrenaline and is willing to do anything crazy/risky on the spot!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am very interested in travelling around various parts of the world, and I think it would be much better to explore an area or country with a person from that place. With the opportunity couchsurfacing gives, I think I can get an authentic experience of the place I am visiting and experience life as it is in the country instead of being a tourist. I am also interested in meeting new people from places I travel, and being with people with an open mind to creating new experiences. Looking forward to going on walks, exploring random places, and having some conversations over a cup of coffee!
