Hello! I am a Japan/California native and am fluently trilingual in Japanese, English, and Spanish. I was born in Tokyo and grew up in Los Angeles, and consider both of these beautiful, bright cities to be my "hometown". I also lived in Sonoma County, California for several years and can give recommendations on wineries, picnic areas, nature hikes, etc.
More than a year ago, I moved to the incredible, historic city of Guanajuato, Mexico, and will live here indefinitely. I have taken countless tourists (who have found me informally online) to all the best, under-the-radar sites in this town, and provided translation for both English and Japanese-speaking guests!
Planning a California road trip and need to know what the best highways are? Looking for the quintissential Hollywood experience? On a hunt for the best ramen in Tokyo, or the best tacos in Guanajuato? Want to know where to go on daytrips or weekend getaways? Trying to go on a hike in Mexico? Need translation services in English, Japanese, or Spanish? Just want someone to hang out with during your trip? I'M YOUR GIRL!
I am fun, educated, and have an engaging personality. I have my Master's degree in social work and am very well-read; I could talk for hours about books or public policy. I've traveled for months at a time by myself all around the world, and I'll never stop! If you come see me in Mexico, you will also meet my Mexican husband, who can give private Spanish lessons or run excellent hiking tours!
