About Me

Please kindly note the following:



My parents worry about me because of solo travel. My location is always sharing. My parents check if I survive and safety. They don't use sharing badly so don't worry.

I went to the US and China to study abroad and traveled around them using Couchsurfing. I'm still a university student and I'm busy job hunting. I will travel to Europe next year after I get a job!!

My major is Design. Mainly, I'm learning about movies (films, commercials, TV, and Music videos) and photography. My dream is to make a TV program, Radio program, or film. If you would like to be my model, I want to take your photos :)

I live in Shizuoka City (静岡市) with my family. We have some experience of hosting foreigners. So my family welcomes you. But I need to ask my family. We are busy so it is hard to host but please text me:)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

1:Traveling with someone is more fun than being alone. I travel alone, so I want to meet someone. I want to know about the culture and local food like not on the Internet.

2: I'm interested in lifestyles, so I want to stay at someone's home. And I want to talk to your family. I had experienced homestay in a high school. Living with someone made me happy and my mind warmed. It was a different lifestyle and culture from Japan.

3: I want to talk and learn the language. My English is still not native level, but I like talking and listening to your topic. My Chinese is not good, I can speak only basic things. Listening is the most difficult for me. I will ask you many times, but I will try to understand. I hope I can use the language.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite artist is Gen Hoshino. He is Japanese. I’m interested in foreign music and movies. I can almost understand foreign films with subtitles.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I traveled around the US alone for one month. It was hard to prepare for the trip because I was not good at English. But I could travel alone! And I tried to communicate with someone. I traveled with some people who I have met for the first time. I know how to enjoy solo trips. It was fun to travel with someone who was not my friend but other travelers or local people.

I studied in China. Actually, I would study in English, but all classes were in Chinese. It was very hard and I couldn't understand, but my Chinese became better! Then I could travel alone in China for one month. I lost the last cable car in Mt.Hua(华山) and it was dangerous to spend alone one night on the mountain. However, I met a kind family who we had never met and they accepted me. So I stayed safe with them.

I swam with whole sharks, turtles, and many fish in the Philippines.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I want to go anywhere with you if you are interested in sightseeing and you aren't busy. I want to try conversation. My English and Chinese are not fluent. But I like to talk. And I can make Japanese food if you want to eat and borrow me your kitchen. And I can take your photos. I can't print it, but I can send you pictures on your phone.
