well I love food, that‘s why you’ll probably catch me eating Donburi or on my way to the next Ramen
shop! Oh, and if you like Video Games, I’m the right address to talk to because I’m in the „game“
since the first NES! What are your favourite games?
Let’s share our stories!

I make electronic music and hip hop but I love all music genres and would love to know more about Japanese music.

Ohayo there, I’m Shannen, a French traveler whose plane happened to land in the Tokyoite jungle on a lively night of September. Highly curious and eager for adventure, you’ll see my fellow backpack and me wandering the wild streets, looking for some interesting traditional art to admire or just the right way back home (getting lost is one of my favorite game). I am a tidy person with a chaotic life, interested in both science and fiction as well as outstanding fashion.
After studying Graphic Design, I currently live with a rebellious pencil in hand and headphones glued to my ears. Ultimately, I describe myself as a free soul with an open mind and a passion for learning anything new.

Fala galera, I’m Vini from Curitiba, Brazil. The reason why I’m in Japan is because I wanna explore the country of my grandparents and make music here. As I graduated in a music college, I have the dream of becoming a big musician in the future. After graduation, I asked to myself several times:”why not going to Japan and trying to achieve my goals there instead of Brazil? It’d be challenging”. The world is so big and I have a lot to learn from it, so here I am, aiming to make my dreams come true. Now I’m working hard with my band called Vulpes Zerda. I hope we can have great times together. How about a culture exchange? I’m looking forward to it!
