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.

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

Why I study aboard
1: To increase my English and Chinese skill.
English is used around the world. I can communicate with more people if I can use English. This makes my life more fun!! Then, I'm learning Chinese. the possibilities for my job and my life expand!!

2: To meet new people and know various opinions.
I studied in China and Australia when I was a high school student. This term is very short. But I could know the difference opinion. It changed my view and inspired me. America is diverse (race, religion, age, and gender). It is very different to Japan.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I came to the US to study English in August. I will stay only 1 semester. It’s too short for me. I want to use English more, and I want to know American culture. So, I’m going to travel around the US after this semester. Term is 12/15/2022 ~ 1/31/2022. And then, I will go to study abroad in China from February. I need to pay tuition fee by myself. So, I need to saved money. Before starting university, I traveled alone in Los Angels. I knew hotel was expensive. And My friend who I meet in same American university told me Couchsurfing. I thought I may save money!

Also, I want to take communication with many people. I live in on campus. So, I want to experience the home stay. And I want to know American life style!!

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite artist is Gen Hoshino. He is Japanese. I’m also interested in foreign music and movies. I can almost understand foreign movie with sub titles.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I traveled in Los Angeles alone. It was hard to prepare 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 trip. It is fun travel with someone who is not my friend but other travelers or local people.
