Specialties and Hobbies

  • Public bath hopper (been to more than one hundred public bathes around Japan)

  • Like listening to pop music. Currently a big fan of Bruno Mars.


I love learning about different cultures and sharing the culture we have in Japan. Tokyo can have two faces.  For the newbies, it is very sophisticated, modern and more on the high-end scale.  On the other hand, from the view of locals, we have many traditional places and shops to go to which are very affordable for everybody and speaks about the real Tokyo. It will be my great pleasure to show you around my homeland.
