    About Hiro
    I found out another website that people ask free couch to local people on the internet.
    I didn't know English, I had never been to abroad. But I thought it's interesting to meet to foreigner.
    After I've hosted 100 people in six months in my apartment, I became to able to communicate to people in English without google translation. I went to several countries.I didn't know Tokyo is the biggest city in the world!
    then I moved to the old large house for living with people from different countries.
    I've hosted a few hundred people so far on CS but it's getting worse and worse so I'm here now.
    I'm here for meeting new people than seeking labor, we're suitable to traveler who need "a couch" one week.
