Hi I'm James from California! My mother is Japanese and my father American, so I spent my childhood summers visiting Japan and falling in love with this beautiful country. I grew up in Hawaii, California, and Seattle. After graduating from university, I lived in Hokkaido (Japan) and Seoul (South Korea), then served as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa for 2 years. I now work in Tokyo as a consultant in finance and tech.
I love travel, photography, and anything related to the great outdoors. Although working in Tokyo I am pretty busy during the weekdays, when free I love to grab a coffee or drink with or take guests out to experience the city! Studied city planning and international sociology in university, so I can give you a rundown of Tokyo and Japan from that perspective as well.
Countries I've visited so far: South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, India, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia (Bali), Turkey, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Ireland, UK, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland
Looking forward to meeting you soon! Shoot me a message if you have any questions about Airbnb, my apartments, or Tokyo in general!
