I have traveled to over fifteen countries, Australia, Fiji, US, NZ, Thailand, Singapore, Greece, The Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, and Canada. I enjoy meeting people and seeing beautiful landscapes.

For over two years, I've worked in Canada, and in January 2015, I came back to Japan.

I've worked in the tourism industry, so I'm good at making trip plan. I used to live in Tokyo and Kyoto, so I can advise you where to go in Japan, too.
