About Me

I had a surgery this June and I'd like to take a rest for a while.
Usually, I accept one couple of guest per month for two or three nights. Please refer to the possibility as shown below.



I am a retired old man living alone after my wife passed away. I was a mechanical engineer and a researcher of applied physics.


Do the best.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


After the East Japan disaster on 11th March 2011, I accepted the victims in my house. After that, I decided to use my room for CS.


I have accepted more then 150 surfers. I have been contributing to the victims of Tsunami as well as poor Asian children. I traveled the US in 2015 visiting families, who had stayed in my house. The documentary was televised in Japan. My activity also appeared in the Asahi (news paper) in 2016.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: jazz to classic.
My favorite piano jazz player is Hiromi Uehara. She is great!
Books: historical novels and mysteries.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I had lung cancer, the cancer was detected by PET system, which I had been engaged in the development for long years. I am still alive and I am so happy.

Teach, Learn, Share

My English is intermediate level though I am still studying. I will be happy if you correct any mistakes for me.
I have recorded many TV programs about Japanese culture in English. I will show you these if you like.
