I am a private school's civics teacher in Tokyo; teaching ethics, economics, politics, and sometimes world history.
I am very interested in other people's lives, social customs, what they like/dislike, how to live their lives and arts.
And I prefer staying in local homesteads than gorgeous hotels, and going to markets to buy the local foods to dine in.
I have been to China, Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Swiss, UK, USA, Russia, Canada, Poland, Czech, Germany, Singapore, Korea, Palau, France, Spain, Amsterdam.
I can speak English but not enough to understand Shakespeare.
But I like talking strangers who have styles, beautiful smiles, and optimistic philosophy.
My heroes who are still alive :Michelle Obama and her husband. Queen Elizabeth 2nd. Bhutan' king and his wife who visited eastern Japan and prayed for the dead and bereaved and children after earthquake during their honeymoon, and everyone who prayed, gave aid to anyone who suffered. God bless them all.
I live in Tokyo with my parents and elder sister and 2 cats, sometimes go vacation to our second house and enjoy country life.
