Hi guys! My name is Mariah（マライア）and even though I am from America I was actually born in China! I moved to Japan in spring of 2018 and I have enjoyed every moment of my life here. I graduated with a degree in illustration and I’m currently studying Japanese at a language school so I can work as an illustrator here. Aside from making and looking at art, I also love food, traveling to new places, anime, manga, and listening to music (especially kpop). I enjoy making new friends and hearing their stories and experiences! I look forward to getting to know you!
Heya everyone! My friends and family call me Mitya.

Hello! My name is Ricardo, you can call me Ricky. I am from San Francisco, “The City by the Bay”. I moved here to Japan in October 2018 and I am loving it. I have sixteen years of experience as a Hotel Operational Manager, housing international language students. After so many years of learning so many cultures in the world through meeting people from everywhere in San Francisco, I have interest to Japan the most. Why is that? It’s the unique combination between the traditional way of living and the modern way of Japan. I love traveling, playing billiards and an aquarist. My goals are to continue meeting new people and to make new friends, learn and understand the Japanese culture deeply and keep pushing myself to the fullest of enjoying life itself.
Hello there! My name is Dennis. I was raised in Tokyo and have lived in several countries ever since I moved abroad at the age of 15. I used to work as a ballet dancer in Russia and currently, I’m a student of a Canadian university. However, apparently my instinct prefers sunshine rather than snow so one of my dreams is living in a warm place like Okinawa. I love working out, reading books, listening to classical music, and making new friends! I’m looking forward to hearing your stories as well as sharing my own experiences! Can’t wait to see all of you!
Hi everyone! My name is JB, a Vietnamese living in Tokyo. I came to Japan to have an undergraduate course and so far it has been an amazing learning journey.

I am an active person and I love to spread my positive energy to everyone. So if you get ready to receive such positive energy, come and say hi to JB. ^_^

Hi, I’m Matt and I come from a small country in Europe, called Estonia. I lived in London, UK for 5 years before moving to Japan with my partner.
I first came to Japan 2015 to visit and suddenly fell in love with the place, the food and the people before moving here 2019. As a technophile I find myself often in electronics shops and market to gather new tech ideas. I have strong passion for robotic systems and I used to teach it in the university back home.
With hobbies outside of the electronics field, I love travelling and taking photos of nature and animals. In London I found wild parakeets that I went to feed every week and who often sat on my head and hands whilst crunching the shells of the peanuts.
I hope to make new friends here in Japan and to learn more about the mystical culture.
