About Me


Do, or do not. There is no try.


I was born and raised in Tokyo.

After working for ten years, I just thought, "I wanna go surfing!". Then, I quit my job, went to San Diego in California, then stayed there for one year just for surfing. Now, I came back to Tokyo.

Travel is my life. Because I love to travel so much, I started my travel project, "Meetrip"!


At Meetrip, anyone who is willing to share their favorite local places and activities has opportunity to become a tour guide. You can explore “local usual” as well as “local secret” with them.

I believe that we can make the world a better place if more travelers meet and learn from local people, like CouchSurfing does. I respect how CouchSurfing is changing the world!
