My story

About me Hello my dear travelers and adventurers! Kon-nichi-wa! I moved to Japan about 10 years ago to study and work here! I love traveling, and visiting new places is my great passion too! I have traveled a lot around Japan, and I try to visit new places any time when I have a chance.

What do I do here?

I graduated from the University in Russia, before coming to Japan. Now, I work part-time for Japanese company as a linguist and a business English instructor. Unfortunately, I could not speak any Japanese when I came to Tokyo. I spent two years studying Japanese at the Institute of Japanese Language and Culture. It helped me a lot to learn more about Japan and start to understand its beautiful culture.

What's the best of my city?

Let’s enjoy Tokyo I would be happy to share with you everything I know about the unique Japanese culture, the local traditions and customs. Tokyo is a huge city, it never ends and it never feels the same! It is really hard to imagine a thing that you can not find or experience in Tokyo!
