About Me


Getting to know people from all over the world!


I think the idea is very cool, and although I am a quite busy person, I would love to host and get to know people from different parts of the world. Born in Japan, I lived and travelled to many places in the world since I was a teenager, and I still love it! I am very open, international, laid-back, and creative person:)


Open-mindedness and always be grateful with what you get in your life. Opportunities are something to pursue for, and I never give up on anything I find difficult or troublesome.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm usually a host than a surfer.


It's not really a couch surfing experience, but I home-stayed in Australia and Canada, and it was such a fantastic experience. I had very nice host families who not only showed me around the places but taught me so many things about life and different societies. I want to experience this again by joining the CS and meet wonderful people all around the world!


I am interested in talking about life, society, politics, media, music, games (and other geeky stuff), world, human being, environment etc.

I am a disaster communication expert wanna-be. So if you are into GIS, crowdsourced data and mapping, please do contact me. I am REALLY interested in this topic right now.

Also passionate in photography, piano/ukulele/guitar, painting, tennis, reading books etc

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Winter camping (and avalanche training!) when I was living in BC, Canada. We had to make fire and shelter out of nothing. Also I now know what to do when I confront grizzly/black bear. It's different method you need to use. And the most dangerous animal is not bear but moose. That's what Canadians say!

Teach, Learn, Share

It would be lovely to meet laid-back, open and warm-hearted people who are looking ahead and enjoying their life with passion. It's always nice to meet like-minded internationals who are interested in finding similarities and differences among societies, cultures, and individuals.
