About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Hi, everyone!! thank you for reading my profile.
My name is Kento. What is about me?? I live in US as exchange student now. I'm from japan. small country but we have big heart. I know you know Sushi, the most famous food about my country. But i wanna say, "We do not eat Sushi EVERYDAY!!" How many foreigners asked me about it before,
"Do you eat sushi everyday??"
"haha,,,,NOOOO!!"
so the best description of what about me is I AM NOT EVERYDAY-SUSHI-EATER.
And, of course, I love travel. I love people, culture, nature and every new things for me. and I love my super cute puppy, you should see the pictures!!
And these days, I started to practice cooking Japanese food. So I'm going to upload some food pictures which my host family in us like and I can make in foreign countries. So if you want, I would like to cook it for you.
If i meet you, I wanna share my story and yours. it must be helpful for my life. im gonna try to know how people love their place. i wanna feel what people feel there.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

After 45 days travel around South East Asia, I decided to go study abroad.
And I had studied in us for 9 months. It was really hard to live in the different culture and have to speak different language. When I’m in other culture, everyday is challenge. need hard work but also need to enjoy my life there. and I'm always preparing for my next travel. I'm sure I'm gonna see many amazing things during my travel.

Teach, Learn, Share

Now I'm 27. I have to learn many things. so I'm always learning many things from my life. I think one of the best ways to learn is to talk with people as long as possible. every person has different idea, interest, knowledge. Who knows the state well?? the people live or lived there. I know my country well. Even though my major is administration-engineering, I know my country's culture, history and the way to think because I love my country. We, my country, have long own history. the new common one, all people know, is earthquake. I know how we felt about it at that time and now.
I believe we can share that individual idea and knowledge through the couch surfing.
and I also want to know the traditional food in every culture.
