I'm a 32 year old Japanese woman living in Tokyo, Japan. I am from Tokyo, but grew up in the US and Osaka, so I feel like I have a little mixture of everything in me. I love animals and have a cat. I'm a not-so-avid cycler meaning that while I ride a road bike, I have yet to get clip-in pedals. I sometimes do yoga, zumba, etc and want to try SUP and surfing. I've sky dived twice before - both in Hawaii - and enjoy snorkelling. My main motive for travelling is to taste and experience authentic local cuisine and I love trying to recreate dishes at home (emphasis on "trying"). When travelling, I try to get up early to hit the sights before everyone else comes out. I want to take in everything! I've never hosted on Airbnb but hope to do so eventually.
