About Me

Hey there! I'm Yuki, a 26-year-old calligraphy artist. I quit my job in June and have been solo-traveling around Europe since July.

I signed up quite a while back, but I actually started using it in the summer of 2023!

Can you believe I had only 50 euros in my bank when I arrived in Europe? I've been supporting myself by selling my calligraphy arts on the streets, which I started doing way back in 8 years old.

I've already been to 29 countries! When I was 21, I even hitchhiked my way through all 47 prefectures in Japan. I might not come across as your typical Japanese person, but I'm totally in love with the vibes and cultures abroad.

And I spent a year interning in Germany and the Netherlands, so I can manage a bit of German! I'm thinking of learning Spanish too because I really want to explore South America someday. Feel free to hit me up, everyone! 🌍👋

My hobbies include traveling, music, art, cooking, making videos, DIY projects, interior design, and lifestyle stuff.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm really curious about different ways of life (lifestyle). I prefer putting myself in the local culture rather than staying in hotels.

I enjoy sharing cultures and exchanging experiences. I'm quite intrigued by lifestyles, so I really love talking about local cuisines and stuff like that!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

・Bungee jumping at the 5st highest in the world.
・Hitchhiking around Japan (I have visited all of prefectures)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can totally chat about Japan and even share stories from my past travels! Plus, I'm down to teach you a thing or two about Japanese calligraphy if you're interested. I've also helped out fellow expats here by giving Japanese lessons!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'd love to send you some of my artwork as a gift! I'll write your name using Japanese kanji on top of a photo you like. And if it works out, I'm up for cooking dinner together and digging into some local eats! Learning local food is something I really enjoy!
