About Me

I'm Ken, born in Kobe, living on Earth, Japanese. Fun, Unusual and Cool guy is Ken.
CURRENT MISSION World Odyssey: 23 Laps Round The World My Travel: I am just trying to travel Round The World 23 laps. This is 8th round. Travel with Work, Study, Play & Love is my challenge.

My Job: I found Agent for students and travelers in Toronto since 2003. I am also Blogger, Creator, Designer, Entrepreneur, Filmmaker...etc

My Hobby: I'm Football Junky, love music and party.

My Machine: MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, DJI Mavic, Phantom, Osmo, Go Pro Hero, Fusion, Oculus Go, RX100, EOS 6D...

My Character: I am easy going. I prefer to stay homestay rather than hotels. I like to meet local people and hang out together. I like to introduce my crazy friends all over the world. We often reunion with my hosts, guests and travelers in the small world. CS is just the beginning.

I am sorry I often use my iPhone for my job. You might think l am always busy. You might think I am super fast for moving. However it's normal pace for me. We grow up in difference culture. I work hard, study hard and play hard to keep traveling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to enjoy both surfing and hosting

I love to see again with hosts and guests in other city.


Some friends say I am Master of CS and Travel.
Probably yes or not.
However, I 'm sure I met fantastic CS friends.
I really love CS philosophy.

I can advise both hosts and suffers if you want.
I work as homestay coordinator for my professional jobs.
