<Brief history of my travel>
  • I used to be not interested to travel as well as any outdoors until the university student.
  • During my 3rd grade of university, It was my first time in life by myself to travel to Okinawa through Amami-Ohshima island of Kagoshima pref by ferry from Takeshiba, Tokyo bay for more than 10 hours.
  • During my 4th grade of University, it was my first time in life to travel abroad, for trekking to Nepal, but with my friend. At that time, my friend was seriously sick from the beginning of travel to the end going back to Japan, I finally found out that I don't really wanna anyone to bother me all the way, so I decided to be solo-traveler from now.
  • During 1st graduate student of university, I made a debut a solo-traveler like a backpacker to Latin America for about 1 month.
  • After graduating the graduate university, I used to keep traveling for 2 weeks or for 1 month at least once a year.
  • In my late 20s, I'd been to study abroad to Vancouver in Canada for leaning English. After studying abroad, I kept going down to Seattle in US for the trip by Grayhound bus for 3 month all over United States by myself.
  • At the time turning 40s, I suddenly quit my stable job for getting established as a freelancer like a traveling blogger.
  • After quitting my job, I flied to Manila, Philippines for studying abroad , then I started an around-the-world trip.
  • Now I'm having great time as a freelancer of globetrotter to all over Japan as well as all over the world.
