About Me


To live on my own without hiring company.


I`m Japanese and live in Saitama prefecture.
It's 30 minutes from Tokyo.
I like talking with people from all over the world.
And I like many things such as, travel, outdoor, festival, motorcycle, cooking, organic things, etc.
Feel free to contact me when you need help for Japanese things
I also have blog and YouTube about Japan that have a look if you have time.


My personal philosophy is to enjoy my life itself.
That makes not only you but also everything around you better and happier.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Many people helped me a lot when I traveled abroad.
And I thought this time it maybe my turn to be of other's help.
More than that understand other culture and talk with many people is fun to me.
And I thought CS is useful to understand those kind of things.


I have some CourchSurfing experience.
Gathering in Shibuya, Otuka, Takadanobaba and night cruise.
They were all fun.
I also hosted some people at my flat though my flat is small and no private room.


travel, reading, music, mortorcycle, outdoor, festival, talking, organic farming, wwoofing and so on.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I traveled abroad as a backpacker, every day was surprising and amazing.
One of the bests during travel was Mountain in Nepal.
I went trecking in the Himalaya Monutains
I climbed up to 4130 high on ABC route in Annapuruna.
The scene was just amazing when I got to the top of the last base camp.
Although it was really a hard trecking to me, I could get more than that.
I also have to add most beautiful meeting with a dog in this trecking.
In the middle of the route I came into small village.
And this black dog suddenly appeared out of nowhere.
Mountain route is sometimes confusing and every year there were people who got lost and never come back home.
I'm worried about that as I didn't hire guide so I also might be one of those.
But this dog always walking ahead of me guide me.
I sometimes stopped as I tired and the he looked back on me and waited until I walk again.
At last it was almost exit of village and he dissapered suddenly.
Anyway I was also hungry so I dropped off village's cafe to have lunch at terrace.
When I'm having lunch the dog came back to me again.
I really wanted to say him thank you.
I thought he he might did all those good things to me because he want food in return.
It makes sense!
I put some bread in front of him.
But he never eat or showed any interests in bread.
He was just sitting next to me.
He did all these things just for me without expecting anything in return.
I never forget him in my life thank you so much!!
