I am a garden and flower lover and crazy about drawing. Whenever I do flower arrangement and drawings, I can go so much without sleeping, eating and even going to bathroom :P.
I like to eat fresh! I am open to any food mostly vegetables, mushrooms, and rice is my main food :D I also like fish when I get a chance. I really enjoy the freshness and colors from fresh food!
Even though I am from a second crowded city in Japan, I like to enjoy grace from nature with my full body :) Fresh air from forest, river, lake, and ocean fulfills my energy ;)
I would describe myself as an adventurous person too. I grew up in Japan and went to a university in USA without knowing zero English. I always learn through helping out people, so I completed 4 years of Sociology. I enjoy volunteering in rural areas, in communities who have totally different backgrounds than me. I am open to meet people who have different perspectives from various backgrounds.
I am currently freelance as a life-coach and sales coach.
Psychology, behavioral science, ethical business, sustainable economy have been always my high interest
Joining workaway is my way to learn about myself and travel. I always challenge myself by trying new things. I am curious about so many things..I am ready to try them out and learn more about them. So far, my interests are followings.

Experienced a lot of volunteering. Some times in the cities, sometimes up in the mountain. For instance, cooking at a local soup-kitchen for homeless people, child sitting at a town church, campaigning for UNHCR and GreenPeace in metropolitan Tokyo, etc
I love art. I do water color painting and enjoy pleasant colors of nature :) I carry my brush n coloring materials with me while traveling :)
Learnt traditional Japanese flower arrangement (Sogetsu). If you are interested in, I would love to share those stories too.
I love being out in nature. Hiking, rock climbing, walking woods, river, or beaches..I love the feeling of sun and wind :)
My recent occupations were always related to nature and sustainability of development. I was a sales person for natural food retailer, other times I was a nature guide up in a mountain. I was also one of the staff members in a restoration place in Miyagi prefecture, where they had enormous damages from the Great East Earthquake in Mar. 2011. In that restoration place, those family from Fukushima prefecture can spend "get away" time without worrying about air and soil contamination. This experience got me interested in working for renewable energy and sustainable energy production. I was working for bio-gas project in a research company in rural area in Miyagi. I do have a lot of story I can share. Please let me know if you are interested.
Have a nice day! :D
