About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy own life. Meet the world. Share my experience.

ABOUT ME

I am Japanese, house-husband, an individual investor and a host in Tokyo. I worked as a mechanical engineer in Japanese, American and Belgian companies by my age of 50. http://jp.linkedin.com/in/yoshinorisaito I already retired and enjoy my new life such as cycling, traveling, volunteer work in wiped out cities by Tsunami mainly in Fukushima. I love exploring new places and meeting new people. So I would like travel in all over the world! Someday I will go out for a big tour with my bicycle.

PHILOSOPHY

"Enjoy your life!" given by my friend in Belgium. "It's not important what you earn, it's what you spend that is important." given by my friend in Australia. "You raise me up to more than I can be." by a song. "Those who come are welcome, those who leave are not regretted." as I do everyday.

The disparity between wealth and poverty goes on widening. Rich man becomes richer, poor man becomes poorer. But a movement of 'Share You Own' is one of counter solution I think. The share means not only money and property, also knowledge, education, experience and peace mind among people with good sense. It's very fun if you join.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

World is full of differences. When I come back from abroad, I everytime realize Japan is a kind of miracle country which is clean, safety, organized, gentle, kind, polite, full of piece, beautiful four seasons, free water ....

When you travel in Japan, you may sometimes feel strange. Your Japanese host or Japanese friend in Japan will provide you something what you want before you ask. It's like magic, it's call OMOTENASHI. Japanese have the spirit that they treat you more than their family. And they guess what you want and what you are you going to do. Then they make action before you ask something.

Teach, Learn, Share

I keen on riding bicycle. Also I participate bicycle races. I can share about bicycle experience, mechanical tips and traveling information in Japan. Of course I will share my bicycle, mini velo and MTB for couchsurfers. And I can tell you the preferable road not only in Tokyo also all over Japan where you want to go by bicycle.
