Hi, I’m Tatsu from Okinawa but moved to Tokyo when I was 20. I spent 7 years in Shimotakaido area and have pretty much learned all the good, bad and overall exciting things in this area. I started travelling to different countries from 2015-2019 to broaden my knowledge and life experience. Toronto, Yellowknife, Melbourne Lastly, Copenhagen.Meeting new people, making connections, enjoying the local experience are some of the wonderful experiences that I got to enjoy when travelling abroad. Throughout my journey, i was able to meet people from different countries with different point of views and I am grateful that I had the chance to do so. These are the things that makes me happy and I want to share it with you, to create a meaningful connection, broaden perspective and most importantly helping you experience Tokyo like a a true locals!
