I could also give a little advice about traveling Japan, and if you hold an interest in things of a culinary nature, I'd be more than pleased to share a meal with you, explore a new cuisine (I actually have quite enjoyed the fried grasshoppers I've eaten.), or just talk about food-Oh how I could go on.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

There was that one time when I took a trip and I met up with that person. And then there was that other time where someone else was traveling and they met up with me. We talked and stuff.
Oh man. Good times.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My journey to Japan has definitely been the highlight of my traveling experiences thus far. I was shown much hospitality + met a lot of great people there!
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of soaking in a second-story hot spring bath on a brisk moonlit night, looking across at Mt. Fuji, shortly before a blanket of clouds tucked it in for the night. =)

Teach, Learn, Share

I suppose I could share a little of my knowledge about film, photography, cooking, and baking- though I don't claim to have any special knowledge on the subjects. I'm an autodidact and consequentially I have developed my own style or rules for almost everything. I'm always happy to add to or improve my abilities in any field as well. :)

What I Can Share With Hosts

A good time.
